DNA Test - Tempe, Arizona

Tempe AZ DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Tempe, Arizona 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.

Our Tempe DNA testing technicians are trained to follow guidelines that ensure that the results can be used for legal purposes.

Tempe, Arizona - DNA Testing

Establishing paternity in Tempe, AZ

If parents are not married and need to establish custody of their child, visitation hours, or child support, they first need to establish paternity. Paternity can be established in the hospital when the child is born. The Department of Child Support Services cooperates with hospitals through their Hospital Paternity Program (HPP) to provide paternity establishment when the baby is born.

In some situations, one parent is not cooperative, or there are doubts about who the biological father is. In these cases, many parents choose to schedule a court hearing. The judge will likely order a DNA test to establish the birth father through genetic testing. After the court receives the DNA test results from a certified lab, the legal father will be determined.

DNA test reunites Arizona siblings reunited

Kathleen had been looking for her family her whole life. When Patrick took his DNA test, he matched with a woman named Kathleen, who was believed to be his half-sister. He could not believe it but soon found out they did, in fact, have the same mother!

Patrick's mother and father met in France. They got married, moved to the U.S., and had Patrick. Soon after he was born, his parents divorced. His mother met a new man and conceived another child—Kathleen. Patrick was sent to France to live with his grandparents, and Kathleen was put up for adoption. However, she always knew she had a brother since her adoption papers contained this information.

Patrick lived his whole life with his grandparents, so he had no idea how it felt to have parents or siblings. Now, he is still processing the idea that he has a half-sister. The two met in Arizona and are working on getting to know each other better after many years.
