Description: During a DNA Maternity Test, a buccal swab (mouth swab) specimen is collected from the child and the alleged mother. The sample which is collected contains cells, and most of the cells in our body contain a full set of genetic information in the form of DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid). A person's DNA represents a "genetic blueprint" and like a fingerprint, is unique to each individual. At the laboratory, the DNA is extracted from the cell and specific regions of the DNA are amplified by a process known as PCR (polymerase chain reaction) for careful examination. The DNA pattern of the child is compared to that of the alleged mother. Because the genetic information of a child is inherited from his/her biological parents, examination of the DNA of the child will conclusively determine whether the alleged mother is the true biological mother of the child.
Can the kit be shipped to more than one address if the parties live in different cities? If the individuals to be tested live in different cities, or even different countries, we can split the kit and send each component to a different address. Since the kits are individually barcoded, the samples will still be tested together even if the are sent back separately. To order a split kit, please write the following into the comments box of the online order form: "Please split kit". Please also indicate the name, relationship and address to send each component. For example, please state: "send the alleged Mother's portion of the kit to... (specify the alleged Mother's name and address)" and "send the Child's portion of the kit to... (specify the Child's name and address)".
100% Private and Confidential: The DNA Maternity test is 100% private and confidential. The testing kit arrives in a plain, unmarked package.
