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.

Pembroke Pines, Florida – DNA Testing
Establishing paternity in Pembroke Pines, Florida
If parents are married, the husband automatically becomes the child’s legal father. However, if parents are unwed, paternity must be established. In Florida, parents can easily establish paternity in the hospital when the child is born. Both of them must sign the Paternity Acknowledgment form. A notary public, usually provided by the hospital, must be present to make the form valid. If the parents cannot sign this form at the hospital at the baby’s birth, they can sign it later on, but always with a notary public present.
There are situations when parents are unsure or disagree about who the biological father is. In these cases, parents can go to court and let the judge establish paternity. The judge will likely order a DNA test so they can determine if the man is the father or not.
Identical twins found each through DNA testing
Emily from Pennsylvania and Molly from Florida met on their 36th birthdays. Jewish families in the USA adopted them from South Korea when they were babies, and the twins had no idea the other one even existed. Emilly lived her whole life in Ardmore, PA, and Molly was in the Sunshine State. The sisters found each other because they both took a DNA test. They decided to meet on their birthdays.
Although they had no idea about each other and lived in different states, they discovered many similarities. For example, they both had cats and picked very similar dresses for a prom.
The sisters both agreed that this discovery fulfilled them. Even though they were pleased with their adoptive families, they always felt like something was missing. Now, they had found the missing piece. They both agreed they used to feel disconnected, and once they found out about having an identical twin, this feeling disappeared immediately.
