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 alleged father and child or children. 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 ordering one of our testing kits online and shipping the specimens back to us.

Legal DNA Tests vs. "Peace of Mind" At-Home Tests

A Legal Paternity Test is a court admissible lab testing service performed at an AABB accredited laboratory. 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. A legal paternity DNA test will hold up in court for such matters as child support or to change the name on a birth certificate. This test must be performed using strict chain of custody procedures. Our Madera DNA testing technicians are trained to follow these guidelines so that the results will be legally admissible.

Madera, California - DNA Testing

Establishing paternity in Madera, California

Unmarried parents in Madera, CA, can establish paternity voluntarily by signing the Voluntary Declaration of Parentag (VDOP) or involuntarily by going to court. If neither have any reason to doubt paternity, they can sign the VDOP at the hospital after the child is born. The hospital staff can usually help them with completing and filing it. If parents have any reason to question who the birth father is or if they do not agree, they can go to court.

The judge often asks the alleged father and the child to take a DNA test as it is the easiest way of proving whether the man is the birth father. DNA testing is often done by a painless cheek swab. The DNA specimens are sent to the laboratory, and the results are returned to the judge. The judge can then establish paternity, child support, custody, and visitation hours.

Health Street provides reliable and accurate DNA testing services in Madera, California. Whether you need a genetic test for legal purposes or peace of mind, Health Street offers a variety of testing options.
