DNA Test - Lubbock, Texas

Lubbock TX DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Lubbock, Texas 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

A Legal Paternity Test is a court admissible DNA testing service. Accurate results for DNA paternity testing with 99.99% confidence or greater take about a week.

When deciding which type of DNA test is right for you, consider first what you might do with the results. In order for the results of a DNA test to hold up in court, for child support, or to change the name on a birth certificate, the test must be done at a clinic using strict chain of custody procedures. Our Lubbock DNA testing technicians are trained to follow guidelines that ensure that the results can be used for legal purposes.

Lubbock, Texas - DNA Testing

Establishing paternity in Lubbock, TX

In Texas, if the parents are not married, the father has no legal rights to his child. That is why it is essential to establish paternity. Parents can either sign Voluntary Acknowledgment of Paternity, or they can go to court and the judge will establish it based on a DNA test.

A DNA test is an easy and reliable way of proving paternity, and it is usually done by cheek swab from the alleged father and the child. Once the judge receives the results, he can decide whether the man is biologically related to the child or not.

DNA test reunites firefighter stolen at birth with his family

A Texas firefighter, Tyler, reunited with his mother, from whom he was stolen as a baby and then adopted by an American family who had no idea. His story began when he had his daughter and realized he knew nothing about his birth family. His curiosity triggered him to take a DNA test. Soon, a Chilean group called Hijos y Madres del Silencio contacted him unexpectedly. He learned that this group supports victims of child trafficking and illegal adoptions, and that he was stolen at birth and then adopted by his family without their knowledge.

His biological mother was told he died at birth and had no idea about this. Finally, they could reunite, and he met his three sisters as well. They hugged and cried and enjoyed every moment of this reunion. It was a shock to all of them and felt complicated at first, but they have all enjoyed getting to know each other after so many years apart.

Tyler said he does not want to hurt his adoptive parents' feelings, but he is also delighted to be reunited with his biological mother and his sisters.
