DNA Test – Saint Paul, Minnesota

Saint Paul MN DNA Testing Locations

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

Saint Paul, Minnesota – DNA testing

Establishing paternity in Saint Paul, Minnesota

If the birth father is not married to the mother but wants to be legally recognized as a legal father, he must sign The Minnesota Voluntary Recognition of Parentage. This form will establish a legal relationship between him and the child, and is an easy and inexpensive way to get the court order establishing the legal father.

Both parents must sign the form and file it with the Office of Vital Records in Minnesota. Otherwise, it is not valid. If the father or the mother is not sure about who the biological father is, it is best to do a DNA test. Although DNA testing can be arranged independently, the test results may not be valid in the court, so it is better if the court orders them.

Minnesota women switched at birth: DNA test revealed the truth

It took them seventy-two years to discover that they were switched at birth. A blonde woman named Denice grew up with a family full of redheads and brunettes. The other, a redhead named Linda, grew up as a solo redhead in a family full of blondes with blue eyes.

Denice took a DNA test and found her DNA did not match her siblings or parents. Later on, she discovered she was switched at birth in St. Paul, Minnesota. The two girls were born 31 minutes apart on the 19th of December 1945, and nobody knows how, but they got switched.

Both women were the different ones in the family their whole lives. Denice said she was the only one in the family who was not athletic because her father played in an indie-league team and her sister played softball.

Meanwhile, Linda was the only athletic member of the family and played softball until her 50s. Linda lost her mother when she was 17 due to cancer, but now she is happy that she found her birth mother, who is 99. They consider reuniting with their families as a gift, even though they are still unsure how the swap ever happened.
