DNA Test – Oakland, California

Oakland CA DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Oakland, California 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 Oakland DNA testing technicians are trained to follow guidelines that ensure that the results can be used for legal purposes.

Pain and Treatment Among Workers in Oakland

Like many other cities, Oakland is struggling with rapid rises in opioid and heroin usage. The increased percentage of use is largely related to the number of opioid prescriptions that were written to Alameda County residents. In 2015, for every 1,000 residents, there were 563 opioid prescriptions given out. In simple terms, that equates to roughly half the population having an opioid prescription. With the ease with which these pills were handed out for pain management, many workers work in manual labor industries, such as manufacturing, ended up fighting opiate addiction.

The Evolution of Trade and Manufacturing in Oakland

With nearly 200,000 jobs related to cargo and delivery, blue collar jobs are easy to find and plentiful in Oakland. The chief exports include fruits and vegetables, red meat, resins, chemicals, wood, cotton, and other commodities. Along with that, Oakland is also a large commercial center for said exports. 13 percent of the entire workforce is employed within the wholesale trade and retail market. The large volume of trade has created offshoot industries and direct jobs, like the manufacturers that supply supplement trade. In fact, manufacturing plants in Oakland employ 9 percent of the workforce.

What’s So Dangerous About Oakland?

Life in Oakland is a mix of danger and peace. Neighborhoods in Oakland are complete with racial, cultural, and ethnic diversity. It is a source of pride for long time residents and newcomers alike that, once acclimated into the lifestyle, there is so much beauty to appreciate in the different cultures that surround you in Oakland. The city is very much “up and coming,” and rent is still a lot cheaper than other cities in California. Unemployment has been steadily decreasing since the Great Recession, and is just below 4 percent as of March of 2019. Though Oakland still has a higher unemployment rate than the average rate of California, the city is making great strides and improvements to improve the quality of life for its residents.
