Terre Haute IN DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Terre Haute, Indiana 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.

DNA test helped Terre Haute man discover his family

James recently discovered that he has three half-brothers, a half-sister, and multiple nephews and nieces after he took a DNA test. The 61-year-old pastor had no idea until recently who his father was. His mother got pregnant when she was only fifteen years old after she went on a date with his father, who worked in the military.

Eventually, his daughters, who bought him the DNA test in the first place, tracked James' father down but found out he died a few years back. James did not want to pursue it further, but his family continued the search. A heartwarming Christmas dinner brought the family together, leaving no dry eye in the house. This unexpected reunion has brought immense joy and contentment to James Norman's life, as he embraces the gift of newfound connections and a sense of belonging.
