DNA Paternity Test Kit
At Paternity Testing Centers of Canada this is one of the more common tests that is performed.
Uncertainty about parentage can have life-long psychological consequences. DNA paternity testing is
the most advanced and accurate method available for resolving these parentage questions. Paternity
Testing Centers of Canada can perform both Legal (court approved) and Non-legal tests. With
advanced DNA technology, paternity testing is accurate, rapid and an affordable means for obtaining
conclusive answers with respect to parentage.
During a paternity test, a buccal swab specimen is collected from the child and the alleged father
(mother is optional, but not required for conclusive results). The sample that is collected is comprised
of cells containing the donors unique DNA. Since a child's genetic profile is inherited from his/her
biological parents, examination of the child's DNA when compared to that of the potential father's DNA
will conclusively determine its biological parentage.
Results are typically over 99.99% accurate for inclusion and 100% accurate for exclusion of a potential
father. A 15 genetic marker analysis is used at Confidential DNA Testing Centres.
Note : All participants will receive a reference number and a copy will be sent to both the legal guardian and the potential relation.
Requirements for a Legal Test In order for a Legal test, an appointment will need to be set up
at one of our Legal Testing Locations. Photo identification is required for ALL parties being tested for verification purposes.
