How accurate is the test?

DNA Testing is extremely accurate. The laboratory meets or exceeds all standards established by the AABB. Results for a standard legal paternity test is guaranteed at least 99.99% probability of paternity for inclusions or 100% certainty of exclusion.

What if the alleged father is not available for testing?

When it is not possible to test an alleged father, paternity can be established indirectly (i.e. grandparents, siblings, aunts, uncles, etc).

How is a DNA collection performed?

A DNA collection is quick and painless. A sterile swab is rubbed on the inside of your mouth for 20-30 seconds to collect cheek cells.

State and Federal requirements governing relationship testing laboratories in the United States are variable. New York State has its own formal relationship laboratory evaluation program. The New York State Department of Health (NYDOH) regulates paternity/relationship testing and has specific regulations and laws in regards to who may request a paternity test, methods for billing/payment and release of results. Tests are completely confidential and are only released to those authorized individuals who participated in the test.
