    During a DNA Paternity test, different genetic locations are analysed along the DNA molecule.

    A person possesses two (of many possible) alleles at each location, the alleles are identified by a number. These are inherited from the parents at conception. One comes from the mother and one from the father.

    Therefore, when the DNA profiles of biological parents are laid out together, one of the child’s alleles (numbers) will match up with a number from the mother’s sample and the other should match up with an allele from the father’s sample.

    If these alleles match at all locations analysed, a person is included as the biological father of the child because it proves they have passed these genetic markers to the child at conception.

    Inconsistencies (locations where there is NO match) will exclude a person as a biological father. This is based on the fact that it is only possible to pass on to your offspring the alleles which you possess in your own DNA profile.

    If these alleles match at all locations analysed, a person is included as the biological mother of the child because it proves they have passed these genetic markers to the child at conception.

    Inconsistencies (locations where there is NO match) will exclude a person as a biological mother. This is based on the fact that it is only possible to pass on to your offspring the alleles which you possess in your own DNA profile.

    Why use a Sibling DNA test?

    The Sibling DNA test is usually used as an indirect way of proving the paternity (biological father) of a child and conclusive results are achieved in over 96% of test cases*.

    If the paternity (biological father) of a child/individual is in question but the potential father is not available to participate in a DNA test, then a DNA sample from an undisputed child of the potential father can be used to establish a biological connection in his absence.

    The Sibling DNA test can be used to answer questions such as:

    • Do we have the same father?
    • Are we full siblings or half siblings?
    • Are we half siblings or unrelated?
    • We have the same mother, but do we have the same father?

     

    The Sibling DNA test should only be used if it is not possible to obtain a DNA sample from the potential father. If the potential father is available for a DNA test, then a Paternity DNA test should always be carried out. Paternity DNA tests are available from DNA Clinics and can be purchased on boots.com

    Why use a Grandparent DNA test?

    The Grandparent DNA test is usually used as an indirect way of proving the paternity (biological father) of a child when the potential father is not available for testing. Conclusive results are achieved in over 99% of test cases*

    For this type of test, DNA samples are collected from a potential biological grandparent and compared to the DNA of the child.

    The Grandparent DNA test should only be used if it is not possible to obtain a DNA sample from the potential father. If the potential father is available for a DNA test, then a Paternity DNA test should always be performed. Paternity DNA test kits are also available.
