DNA Test - Scottsdale, Arizona

Scottsdale AZ DNA Testing Locations

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

Scottsdale, Arizona - DNA Testing

Establishing paternity in Scottsdale, AZ

If the mother and father are unwed when the child is born, paternity must be established for the child to have a legal father. Establishing paternity can carry many benefits, such as the same rights and responsibilities for both parents, health insurance benefits, Social Security benefits, possible military benefits, or inheritance. Child support usually cannot be ordered or enforced without a legal father established.

So how can paternity be established in AZ? The easiest way is to sign an Acknowledgment of Paternity (AOP) at the hospital when the baby is born. Once the AOP is signed, birth recorders and nurses can help establish paternity.

This form can be signed later, as long parents cooperate with the DCSS (Division of Child Support Services). If unwed parents do not want to sign an AOP, for example, because they are unsure about who the biological father is, they can go to a court hearing. A DNA test will be needed to establish who the father is, and then the judge can determine paternity based on the DNA test results.

DNA test reunites Arizona family after years

Sherry always knew she was adopted, wondering what had happened to her biological family and if she had siblings or not. She always wished she had siblings, and her wish came true when she took a DNA test that was gifted to her on her birthday.

Richard and Jeanine were born and raised in Arizona with six other brothers. Their mother told them she put another child up for adoption in the 1950s because she thought adoptive parents could provide a better life than a single mother, so they knew they had another sibling out there somewhere.

The mother died in 2003, and Richard and Jeanine wanted to find their sister. They took a DNA test and immediately matched with Sherry. They searched for her on social media and started to talk. They already planned a reunion, and Sherry, who always wanted a sister or a brother, now suddenly has more of them than she could have imagined! Now, she says she no longer feels the emptiness she had before.
