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

Orlando, Florida – DNA Testing
Establishing paternity in Orlando, FL
If unmarried parents have a child in Florida, then the child does not have a legal father. In this case, it is necessary to establish paternity if the father wishes to have parental rights. Parents can establish paternity in the hospital right after the child is born by signing a Paternity Acknowledgment. The form should be signed in the presence of a notary public, which is usually available through the hospital.
Up until the age of eighteen, parents can also establish paternity by signing the same document later on, but it is necessary to have two witnesses and a notary public present.
Another way is establishing paternity by legal order. Sometimes you do not have to go to court, and other times it is vital that the judge orders paternity testing in court. Both methods use DNA tests to establish the biological and legal father.
A DNA test reunites half-brothers from Florida
Dave took a DNA test because he was adopted as a child and was curious about his family history. He always had to leave the “family history” section blank on every medical form that he filled out. For years, he felt guilty about searching for his biological family, but after his adoptive mother died of Alzheimer’s and his father died of heart disease, he decided to take a DNA test.
Dave thought he might find some cousins through the DNA test results, but he never thought he would find a sibling. He discovered his half-brother, who was a police officer just like him!
He wrote him an email, and even though Reynold’s thought it was a scam at first, he replied. They started to talk more and discovered how much they had in common until they eventually met in Orlando. Soon after, they spent the weekend together as brother-bonding time in an RV.
Reynold’s wife joked that they are like lovers, and sometimes it feels like they are having an affair because of how much time they spend together now.
