Lewisburg PA DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Lewisburg, 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.

Facts about DNA Testing in Lewisburg PA

Lewisburg, PA: The Historical Heart of Union County

The small borough of Lewisburg is the historical heart of fast-growing Union County, Pennsylvania. Founded in 1769 by settler Ludwig Derr, the town has been occupied ever since, and has been steadily increasing both its population and industrial capabilities. Local Bucknell University was founded in 1846, and it remains a bastion of knowledge and education for many of the area's young adults, as well as students who come from far and wide to study there.

The area's rich history has made Lewisburg's historical society and archives a popular source of information for people all around Pennsylvania who want to connect to their past, or use information gleaned from DNA test results to learn more about their familial relationships.

Union County Historical Society: A Home For Genealogical Research

The Union County Historical Society is located inside the historic Union County Courthouse in Lewisburg. Inside, many people who are just starting out with basic information gleaned from a paternity, sibling, or grandparent DNA test can begin to piece together the puzzle of their family history.

The historical society boasts first-hand historical resources like newspapers, property histories, and other publications where people can learn more about their familial links to Union County and the surrounding area. Afterwards, they can check out more historical artifacts available for purchase at the area's many antique dealers.

Modern Families in Lewisburg Benefit from DNA Testing, Too

In addition to learning more about your historical links to Union County, DNA testing can also play a role in establishing clear family relationships in a case when parentage is unclear. According to the Pennsylvania Child Support Handbook, "Pennsylvania law requires fathers to share in the legal and financial responsibilities for their child up until the child is 18 years old or graduates from high school, whichever happens last."

In Pennsylvania, the initial presumptive legal father of a child is the person currently married to the child's mother. If this isn't the case, a DNA test is required to clearly establish a child's paternity. At that point, if the parents of the child are not married to each other, they must sign an Acknowledgement of Paternity form, which establishes the child's legal paternity. However, this form may not be used if paternity is in question.

A clear and simple DNA test is often the first step in determining appropriate care and support for children in Pennsylvania.
