Grandparent DNA Test (if the father is not available for testing)
arrow_right_alt
Sibling DNA Test (possible brothers, sisters, or half-siblings)
arrow_right_alt
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 Saint Louis DNA testing technicians are trained to follow these guidelines so that the results will be legally admissible.

Standing up for Men

A St. Louis law firm has dedicated themselves to campaigning for men who are going through difficult divorces. Matt Allen, who is the Senior Director of Marketing for this practice, has written that Hearing the words I am pregnant can ignite a wide variety of feelings in a man. In extreme cases, it is possible for a man to fall victim to paternity fraud. However, since the advent of the age of DNA testing, this has become far less common.

Great Results For DNA Testing In St. Louis

Tracy Kuehn, a woman from Bridgeton, Missouri, is thankful to DNA testing for helpfing her to find her birth family. Originally adopted by parents in St. Louis, she later found her mother's name on legal papers and tried to track her down. Using the methods available at the time was unsuccessful, and Tracy eventually abandoned her dream.

Legal Sibling DNA Testing can be used to determine if people that find each other or meet as adults are actually related as brothers or sisters. Tracy's children thought that a sibling DNA test would be a useful tool for her to use to track down and confirm if she had any full or half brothers or sisters.

Upon further investigation, Tracy found a DNA match on a genealogy register, pointing her to potential half-siblings, Dennis and Ann. Tracy reached out to the pair and, amazing, soon found out she actually had a total of five half-siblings!

The large family is now spending as much time as they can together to put together the missing pieces and build relationships, thanks to advances in DNA testing.
