Sibling DNA Testing is used to determine whether two (or more) individuals share one or both biological parents.
The Sibling DNA test should only be used if other types of test have been ruled out, for example, paternity/maternity/forensic/ Y Chromosome tests should all be considered first.
Sibling DNA test analysis is divided into two categories:
Full-Sibling DNA Test Study
This Sibling test is ordered for clients who want to determine if they have both parents in common (share the same mother and the same father).
Half-Sibling DNA Test Study
This Sibling test is ordered for clients who want to determine if they have one parent in common. (Share the same mother or the same father).
The Sibling test price includes:
The cost of the test also includes: Sample collection, all Sibling DNA test reports and correspondence.
Additional test participants included in the Sibling DNA test should be charged at the rate specified.
As in a Paternity test a DNA profile is produced for each person.
The test analyses genetic locations on the DNA strand. The allele (alternating form of DNA) at each location is identified by a number. The DNA profiles of the test participants are then compared.
The test is based on the fact that biologically related individuals should have more DNA in common than unrelated individuals. On average the alleles (numbers) of full siblings will match at more DNA locations than half siblings, and half siblings will match at more than unrelated people.
Please see the DNA Clinics site for further information regarding the Sibling DNA test.
Need your Test Results Faster?
>>> Express DNA Testing
Standard DNA tests are processed in 5 - 7 working days of the samples arriving at the laboratory. For Sibling or Grandparent analysis the turnaround time is 7 working days.
If you require the result of a Test sooner than this, the DNA Clinics are one of the very few companies capable of providing express DNA Testing Services.
The Express Service can be applied to all DNA tests. Please call 0800 988 7107.
Need a Test for Legal Purposes?
>>> Legal DNA Test Service
A Legal DNA Test is required if the results are to be used for Legal Test purposes.
The difference in price of a Legal Test compared to a Peace of Mind Test is due to the strict protocols that must be followed.
This includes the verification of a test participants identity, when DNA samples are taken and the traceability of all samples to demonstrate a strict chain of custody. Please call 0800 988 7107.
Place your on-line order now and we will dispatch your chosen DNA test Home-Kit direct to your home. The balance of payment for the DNA test is due on return of your samples.
