Paternity DNA Testing

Paternity DNA Testing

What is Paternity DNA test?

A paternity DNA test provides the genetic proof that a man is the biological father of a child. Everybody's DNA is unique except in the case of identical twins. Everybody inherits their DNA from their parents. By comparing the father's DNA with a child's DNA, the paternity DNA test can confirm or reject the relationship with certainty.

Why is Paternity DNA test conducted?

Some of the cases where paternity DNA testing is requested are listed below:

  • To ensure that father's sperm egg was used by the IVF clinic
  • To rule out possibility of swap of baby in the hospital
  • Lack of husband's trust on the wife
  • A lady trying to understand who is the real father
  • Inheritance purposes e.g. siblings trying to find real father for inheritance
  • Required by immigration authorities in some cases
 Why do people get paternity DNA testing done in India?

Paternity DNA test and other relationship DNA tests can be used as legal evidence for parental rights, inheritance claims, immigration, and other circumstances when proof of blood relationship is required. The procedure for legal relationship DNA test is prescribed by the court. The test that we conduct are generally the family's own knowledge.

Mammography is a simple x-ray which can catch breast cancers at an early age. It is generally recommended after the age of 40 or 45 (depending on which guideline you go with), once every two years. Women with family history of breast cancer should undergo mammography even earlier based on recommendation from their doctor.

Whose samples are required for Paternity DNA test?

To determine paternity relationship, the samples of the alleged father and the child are needed. The requirement of mother's sample is optional. Participation of mother helps in data analysis but DNA paternity tests done with mother's sample are equally accurate.

Paternity DNA testing is considered very accurate. It can indicate that a man is a father with over 99.9% accuracy while is can refute a man is a father with 100% accuracy.

How is DNA extracted for Paternity DNA test

DNA is present in most cells in our body. DNA specimen can be taken from blood or from buccal swab. Sometime DNA can also be drawn from hair ends, tooth brushes and other items of personal nature.

What is buccal swab?

A buccal swab consists of a cotton head attached to a wooden or plastic stick. The sample is collected by rubbing the cotton head on the inside of the cheek and putting it back in the container. For paternity DNA test samples for both the alleged father and the child are required. The laboratory can extract the DNA from buccal swab and compare the DNA's in the samples to determine relationship.
