When mobile DNA testing is requested, professionals who work for the testing laboratory will travel to the individual in order to collect a DNA sample, instead of requiring the individual to travel to the location of the laboratory or to a hospital. Since in most cases the DNA sample can be collected with a simple, non-invasive swab drawn around the inside of the mouth, the procedure can be performed nearly anywhere when administered by someone trained in the proper collection techniques.
A paternity test result includes a table that lists: The allele sizes of the different DNA markers examined and used in the statistical analysis portion of the test (i.e., the DNA profile) A Probability of Paternity value A Combined Paternity Index (CPI) value You will want to focus on the Probability of Paternity. A result of 0% means the alleged father is not the biological father; a result of 99.99% or higher means the alleged father is the biological father. The CPI value represents the odds against another random, untested male in the population having the same results as the tested man.
First-class mail is our primary method of sending paternity test results. To protect our patients’ privacy, we send the results in a plain envelope that is not marked with our company name or logo. For patients who would like to see their results sooner than first-class mail permits, we offer two other options for a nominal fee: Fax—Patients who complete a Fax Authorization Form may receive their results via fax. Courier delivery—Patients may also request next-day delivery using a courier service.
Once our laboratory has received all the tested parties’ samples, we will complete the test within 3-5 working days. If you have a pending court date and time is of the essence, you could opt for our 1-day express service. Please call 407-212-3003 to discuss your express service options.
We offer paternity tests starting at $199. Please visit our DNA Fee Schedule to view our fees. If you have any questions about the prices, don’t hesitate to call us at 407-212-3003.
Yes. If the mother is between 10 and 24 weeks pregnant, an OB-GYN can collect a DNA sample from the developing child through either chorionic villi sampling (10-13 weeks) or amniocentesis (14-24 weeks). The baby's prenatal sample is then compared against the mother's and alleged father's DNA samples, which are collected using the standard buccal swabbing method. If the mother is more than 24 weeks pregnant, she must wait until the baby is born to do a paternity test. However, a newborn infant can be swabbed any time following birth, so a paternity test can be started soon after the delivery.
f two possible fathers are related as full brothers or father and son, they may share many of the DNA markers used in paternity testing. This means that if proper precautions are not taken, both men could test positive as the child's biological father. DNA testing is strong enough to determine paternity in a case involving related alleged fathers, but the laboratory must be aware of the situation before the testing process begins. We offer two options for cases involving alleged fathers who are related: Option 1: Test both alleged fathers, the child, and the mother at the same time. By comparing both alleged fathers' DNA profiles with the child's DNA profile, our expert laboratory staff can achieve accurate and conclusive test results. There is an added fee for the additional alleged father. Option 2: Test one alleged father with extended analysis. This option can be taken when only one of the alleged fathers is available for testing. To produce a conclusive result, we must perform extended testing and statistical analysis. There is an additional fee for the extended testing and analysi
Several testing options are available in situations where the alleged father is missing or deceased: The first option that should be considered is viability testing on a sample taken from the deceased, such as stored blood or a tissue sample. (This type of sample usually comes from a coroner's or medical examiner's office.) If usable DNA is found in the sample, we can conduct a paternity test using it as the alleged father's sample. If no biological samples from the alleged father are available, grandparentage testing is the next option to consider. Both biological parents of the alleged father (the paternal grandparents) are required to participate in a grandparentage test. Results of this test prove only the relationship of the child to the grandparents, but most government offices treat these results as indirect evidence of paternity. If one or both paternal grandparents are unavailable for testing, other family relationship tests--such as genetic reconstructions and siblingship tests--may be performed to indirectly determine a child's paternity. Please contact us to discuss your situation. 407-212-3003
Yes. If the mother's participation is not possible, we can perform a motherless paternity test at no additional charge. A motherless test requires more extensive analysis to produce conclusive results, but the results are just as accurate as those of a standard paternity test.
The chain of custody process is what makes our paternity test results legally defensible in courts and other government agencies. It involves three main aspects: 1. The tested parties are properly identified when their samples are collected. (Their government-issued IDs are verified and photocopied, and the individuals are photographed and thumbprinted.) 2. The samples are collected by a neutral third party—someone who has no personal interest in the outcome of the test (e.g., a hospital, clinic, or laboratory staff person). 3. The samples are tamper-taped, securely packaged at the collection site, and carefully inspected upon receipt for any evidence of tampering. When these requirements are satisfied and documented, a paternity test’s results are legally defensible. This means that the patients can use them for legal purposes such as child custody, child support, immigration, and more.
XDDS strictly adheres to the chain of custody procedure, and this makes our test results legally defensible. Many of our patients use their test results for legal purposes such as child custody, child support, immigration, Social Security benefit claims, inheritance claims, and more.
