Peace of Mind Paternity DNA Test
The more loci that are analysed for a paternity or a relationship DNA test,
the higher the accuracy. The industry standard is to only offer 13 to 16 loci
(markers). DDC analyse a minimum of 20 loci on all our DNA testing services,
ensuring that our results are 500 times more accurate.
DNA testing for paternity purposes from DNA Diagnostics Centre will accurately confirm any uncertainties regarding the paternity of a child.
The paternity test works by analysing a child’s DNA profiles against the DNA profile of the alleged father, the mothers DNA profile can also be used during this process. Once the child is born, the child’s unique DNA profile will consist of half from the father and half from the mother and paternity tests will clearly show whether the child has inherited DNA from the alleged father. When an alleged father and child’s DNA is analysed, their unique profiles will show similar traits in genetics that has been passed down. Our peace of mind testing services sometimes referred to as personal knowledge or home paternity testing is a simple process of collecting ones own DNA samples. We dispatch a DNA sample collection kit to the individuals being tested; the kit consists of buccal swabs for DNA collection and step-by-step instructions on this simple process. This method of collecting one’s own DNA samples, peace of mind testing is not valid in court of law. Consent forms are included and these must be signed and returned to DNA Diagnostics Centre with the parties DNA samples and payment.
