DNA Test - Nashville, Tennessee

Nashville TN DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Nashville, Tennessee clinics:

Paternity Testing can conclusively establish whether or not a man is the biological father of a child.

Relationship Testing for other close family relationships can be performed at our testing centers. Our DNA testing services can confirm or deny biological relationships between grandparents, grandchildren, siblings, half-siblings, aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews:

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 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 Nashville DNA testing technicians are trained to follow these guidelines so that the results will be legally admissible.

Establishing paternity in Nashville, TN

When a couple is not married, they need to establish paternity. Establishing paternity will give the child a legal father, which can be essential for all parties involved. This can allow both legal parents to share the child's financial needs, emotional needs, and legal responsibilities. When parents work together, it can positively impact the child's life and well-being.

If either party is not one hundred percent sure who the father is, the child support office can schedule a DNA test with a certified lab to determine the father. Once the DNA testing results are returned to the local child support office, the paternity can be established with a court order. From there, the court will issue an order for establishing paternity and parenting responsibilities, current child support and retroactive support, birth expenses, assurance of medical insurance, visiting schedule, custody, or even a name change.

DNA test reunites long-lost siblings after 75 years

Suzan and Jackie finally met after 75 years. Suzan was given for adoption as a child because her birth mother could not take care of her. She was never told she was adopted, but years later, the truth unfolded when her daughter submitted a DNA test and received a match. The DNA test results led Suzan to find her sister, Jackie, who their biological mother raised. She also found out she had a brother, but both her mother and her brother had already passed away.

It was very unexpected since it was Suzan's daughter and Jackie's cousin who took the DNA tests. "I felt like I was alone in the world, and when I died, my children would only have each other, and now they have a whole family," said Suzan, thrilled to meet her long-lost sister. It took them forever to discover this long-hidden truth, but now they are busy getting to know each other and spending time together as a family.
