Paternity or maternity test


The paternity of a child can be determined by testing samples from the child the claimed father and the mother.


It is possible to carry out a paternity test without the mother's sample, however the analysis is always more conclusive when both parents are tested. DNA testing of the mother, even if maternity is not disputed, improves the chance of obtaining conclusive results and is a quality control check for both the scientific and legal community, to ensure the correct child was tested. While motherless paternity testing is a relative common practice, it can present a number of problems, ranging from inclusive results, or in the case of incest or related alledged fathers, a false inclusion.  


When a mother, child and possible father are tested our results will either show he is not the father or normally provide proof of paternity with a confidence level of 99.999% and usually greater than 99.9999%.
