All testing performed by an accredited laboratory.
DNA Direct offers confidential, accurate, fast, and affordable avuncular testing services.
Avuncular tests calculate the likelihood of relatedness between a child and an aunt or uncle.
Because a child inherits exactly half of its genes from its biological father, and because the biological father shares (on average) half of his genes in common with his full sibling, the child will share (on average) half of its paternal genes in common with the full sibling of the biological father. Based upon the number of genetic matches, the laboratory calculates the statistical likelihood that the alleged aunt/uncle is biologically related to the child versus being unrelated.
It is important to understand that it may not be possible to achieve a conclusive result. Even though they have the same parents, a full sibling of the alleged father is not genetically identical to the alleged father and may have inherited numerous genetic markers that the alleged father did not. On the average, testing an alleged father’s full sibling allows us to determine only half of his genes. To increase the certainty of the results, testing the mother of the child is strongly recommended, as it allows us to identify genetic markers of the child that were inherited maternally and to eliminate them from consideration as possible paternal markers.
We understand your need for results to remain confidential. Once testing is complete, we will only send results to the email address you provide when the order is placed. We will not issue results over the phone.
THE ANSWERS ARE ONLY DAYS AWAY.
A DNA collection kit by default comes with supplies for two individuals: 1 welcome letter with DNA kit activation instructions, 1 set of sample collection instructions, 4 buccal (mouth) swabs, 2 sample envelopes, and a polymailer envelope with a United States use ONLY prepaid return label.
Additional supplies will be included if additional individuals are being tested.
NOTE: The DNA Collection Kit for our Infidelity DNA Test contains sample collection instructions with pricing, 2 buccal (mouth) swabs for 1 reference sample, and does not include a prepaid return label or envelope.
STEP 1 - Activate your DNA kit by visiting the "Activate DNA Kit" link in the main menu. The email address you provide is the email address we will use to communicate with you and send the results to. Infidelity and Semen Detection kits do not need to be activated.
STEP 2 - Carefully follow the sample collection instructions, be sure to put the correct buccal swabs in the correct sample envelopes, and seal them.
STEP 3 - Place your sealed sample envelopes in the return polymailer and return your DNA kit to the laboratory. Be sure to check the prepaid return label for where to drop it off. It is also a good idea to write down the tracking number.
STEP 4 - When the laboratory receives your returned DNA kit they will thoroughly inspect it and confirm it has been activated. After that we will notify you by email it has been received and follow up with you in 1 to 2 business days with the results of your DNA test.
NOTE: If there are any issues with your DNA kit or the laboratory analysis, we will notify you immediately.
