DNA Test - Sarasota, Florida

Sarasota FL DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Sarasota, Florida locations:

The most commonly ordered DNA test is a Paternity Test to conclusively establish whether or not a man is the biological father of a child.

Paternity Testing can be performed at our testing centers. DNA Testing can be done for other close family relationships, such as:

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 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.

Legally Admissible DNA Tests vs. "Peace of Mind" At-Home Tests

A Legal Paternity Test is a court admissible DNA testing service. 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. In order for the results of a DNA test to hold up in court, for child support, or to change the name on a birth certificate, the test must be done at a clinic using strict chain of custody procedures. Our Sarasota DNA testing technicians are trained to follow guidelines that ensure that the results can be used for legal purposes.

Sarasota, Florida - DNA Testing

Establishing paternity in Sarasota, Florida

For unmarried parents in Sarasota, Florida, establishing paternity is an important step that can provide benefits to their children. There are two primary methods to establish paternity in Sarasota:

Signing the Paternity Acknowledgment form. This can be signed at the hospital immediately following the birth of the baby or later, but a notary public must be present. This is the most straightforward and quickest way to establish paternity, but it's important that parents are sure before proceeding.
Obtaining a court order. For those who are unsure or unwilling to establish paternity voluntarily, going to court is a common alternative. This approach typically involves DNA testing to determine the child-father relationship.

Health Street's legal DNA testing is conducted through non-invasive cheek swabs, which is a reliable and painless process.

DNA testing reunites Sarasota family members

Vicki's interest in learning more about her family started when her fourth-grader received an assignment to trace his family tree, leading her to uncover a half-brother she never knew existed. Eventually, she confirmed the biological relationship thanks to her determination and the DNA tests. She organized a meeting between her father and her new-found brother. The reunion was a success; her brother and father immediately bonded over common interests, including being veterans, sharing a love for motorcycles, and having the same sense of humor.

Despite initial skepticism and denial from the mother, who claimed the DNA tests were inaccurate, the similarities between the family members were undeniable.
