Manchester CT DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Manchester, Connecticut 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

Establishing paternity in Manchester, CT

Unmarried parents from Manchester, Connecticut, have two main ways to establish paternity:

Signing an Acknowledgment of Paternity (AOP). This is often the chosen path for parents who are in agreement about the father's identity. They can sign the AOP at the hospital right after the baby is born or later at a local Department of Social Services (DSS) office. Once signed and sent to the Department of Public Health, paternity is officially recorded in the Paternity Registry. However, it is important that an AOP is not signed if either party disagrees with paternity. An AOP is a legal document that can be difficult to challenge later on.
Going to court. Parents usually choose this option when either has any reason to believe the alleged father is not the birth father. The judge often requires a DNA test to be performed.

If you are in need of a DNA test in Manchester, Connecticut, Health Street is at your service. Our cheek swab method of DNA testing is 99.9% accurate, quick, and non-invasive. Scheduling an appointment is easy and can be done online or via phone—whichever you prefer.
