DNA Test - Levittown, Pennsylvania

Levittown PA DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Levittown, Pennsylvania locations:

The most commonly ordered DNA test is a Paternity Test to conclusively establish whether or not a man is the biological father of a child.

Paternity Testing can be performed at our testing centers. DNA Testing can be done for other close family relationships, such as:

Grandparent DNA Test (if the father is not available for testing)
Sibling DNA Test (possible brothers, sisters, or half-siblings)
Avuncular DNA Test (aunt/uncle and niece/nephew)

Specimens we can test for DNA

The easiest and most reliable way to obtain a DNA sample for paternity testing is to swab the inner cheeks of the people being tested. These skin cells are known as buccal cells, and they rub off easily onto cotton swabs and remain in place for analysis by our laboratory. Other specimen samples, such as hair follicles, fingernails, and garments that might contain someone's DNA, can also be tested. An Alternative Specimen DNA Test is done by registering online and shipping the specimens to us.

Legally Admissible DNA Tests vs. "Peace of Mind" At-Home Tests

Our Levittown DNA testing technicians are trained to follow guidelines that ensure that the results can be used for legal purposes.

Levittown, PA DNA Testing

What Are DNA Tests Used For?

DNA tests can be used for many reasons, from determining paternity to changing a birth certificate, establishing a relationship with a deceased person, or deciding about child custody and support. Learn more about DNA testing in Levittown, PA, below.

Paternity Testing

Are you unsure about the identity of your child's biological father? Did you find yourself in a situation where you are the legal father but potentially not the biological father? Do you want to establish a relationship with your child? Whatever the case, DNA testing can help you clarify the relationship with confidence.

Child Custody and Support

If parents are not married, they may want to establish custody and child support. However, those can only be determined if paternity is legally established first. To do so, the father and child may need to take a DNA test to prove paternity.

Changing a Birth Certificate

In scenarios of mistaken paternity, DNA testing is used to correct the father's name on a birth certificate. This process involves proving that the current legal father is not biologically related and possibly identifying the actual biological father.

Post-Mortem Testing

Individuals may request post-mortem testing when they think they are related to a deceased person, and they may be eligible for inheritance.

How DNA Tests Are Analyzed

Once the DNA samples are collected, usually by cheek swab or hair follicle, they are analyzed by experts in certified laboratories. Genetic markers are compared to establish the probability that the two tested individuals are related.

How Long Does It Take to Receive DNA Test Results?

If the DNA testing sample was collected with a cheek swab, the test results should arrive within a week.
If the hair follicles are used for DNA testing, the results can take up to two weeks.

Establishing Paternity in Pennsylvania

Paternity in Pennsylvania is commonly established in two ways.

When both parents agree on the biological father, they can sign the Voluntary Acknowledgement of Paternity, usually available at the hospital after the baby is born. Parents must sign it before a witness and file it with the Department of Public Welfare. Once completed, the birth father becomes a legal parent, and his name can be added to the birth certificate.
Another option is establishing paternity by going to court. Either parent can start the case by filing a petition with the court. When the parents have disagreements, the court will often require DNA testing to prove the father-child relationship.
