Experts estimate that
5% to 10% of all children born in wedlock are not the
biological children of the husband. Usually the mother is aware who the biological father
of her children is. It is therefore surprising that 20% to 30%
of all tests are actually requested by women. A molecular
biological test is often the only way for a mother and the
potential father to be sure of paternity.
biological testing allows you to be sure about paternity or
the fact that someone is definitely not the father. This
method is not only more accurate but also much more cost
efficient than traditional methods. All we need are a few body
cells from the father and the child. Taking a sample is easy:
take some oral fluid, a toothbrush or a cigarette butt and
mail to our laboratory.
During our molecular paternity test we
select specific DNA regions of the father and the child and
compare them to each other. This comparison allows us to
achieve a probability of at least 99.99%.
If necessary, we can
test for more DNA regions and hence reach at least 99,99999%.
This particular test does not look for any genetic specifics
or potential illnesses though.
paternity tests are used by a wide variety of entities today.
Courts, police, child welfare services, detectives, lawyers
and doctors all use these tests. More and more private persons
use these inexpensive and fast tests as well to have piece of
We can conduct other
tests to clarify biological relationships between relatives
e.g. are twins enzygotic (from one egg) or bizygotic (from two
eggs), is a grandchild really related to its grandmother.
