DNA Test - Rowlett, Texas

Rowlett TX DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Rowlett, Texas 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 Rowlett DNA testing technicians are trained to follow these guidelines so that the results will be legally admissible.

Rowlett, Texas - DNA Testing

Establishing paternity in Rowlett, TX

For unwed parents in Rowlett, establishing paternity is essential for ensuring that children have access to the full range of benefits and rights they deserve. There are two primary methods to establish paternity in Rowlett:

Acknowledgment of Paternity (AOP): This is a straightforward method chosen when both parents are confident of their child's parentage. The AOP form is usually completed at the hospital post-birth. It's important to involve an AOP-certified entity during this process, as they possess the necessary training to help parents voluntarily establish paternity accurately.
Court: This path is often taken when there's uncertainty about the child's paternity. A court proceeding might require a judge-ordered DNA test for both the alleged father and the child to determine their biological connection.

For those seeking trusted and precise DNA testing services in Rowlett, Health Street is a great option. Our tests are 99.9% accurate or more and are non-invasive.

DNA test helps reconnect son with long-lost veteran father

In 2022, Mark took a DNA test that revealed his long-lost father, Arley, an 87-year-old Korean War veteran. When they met, Mark found that his father was living in solitude in a dilapidated shack in Lufkin. Mark was confronted with the reality of Arley's poor living conditions. Determined to change his father's circumstances, he reached out to the community, where he received the support of Brian from the Veterans Resource & Outreach Center of Rowlett and generous contributions from Home Depot of Rowlett and Rockwall. A cozy, new home was built for Arley near Mark's residence. This touching reunion provided Arley with a warm roof over his head and introduced Arley to the joys of being a grandfather and great-grandfather.
