Paternity Tests

Paternity test – Peace of mind

As an affordable option for those who don't need the DNA Test for Legal purposes, DNA Solutions offers the Peace of mind DNA Test. This test will be performed in the same way as our Legal DNA Parentage Test except that in this case the samples will not be witnessed and taken at a collection center. We will send you a DNA Home Kit and you will be able to take your own mouth swabs at the convenience of your home.  The DNA Home Kit contains instructions on how to take the mouth swabs, order forms and 1 swab packet per person tested with 2 swabs in each packet (one for each cheek). At DNA Solutions, we use state of the art techniques to provide you with the most accurate DNA Test. Our Parentage DNA test analyses 23 regions and is powerful enough to determine which one of 2 brothers is the biological father of a child. In a standard paternity case (father, mother and child) the minimum paternity index for our test is 99.99999% in case of a match (inclusion) and we are able to exclude paternity with 100% certainty in case of a mismatch. At DNA Solutions, we understand how stressful the wait for the results can be,  for that reason we offer the quickest turn around time in Australia, your peace of mind Paternity Test will be performed in 5 business days from the reception of the samples at our laboratory.

Our Relationship test is performed to determine whether two or more individuals are biologically related.

We compare the DNA of two people to determine which relationship is best supported by the amount of DNA they have in common. For example, if two people are known to share the same mother, our Relationship DNA Testing can be used to indicate the likelihood of them having the same father. We can see if their DNA profiles are more consistent statistically with them being half-siblings or full siblings.

A wide range of relationships can be considered and the testing can be performed on males and females (grandparents-grandchildren, siblings etc).

DNA Solutions Pty Ltd is Accredited for Relationship Testing, our Relationship DNA Tests are valid for:

- Immigration purposes
- Peace of mind purposes
- Legal purposes*

*Test performed according to the Australian Family Law Regulations*


$750 Per Test

Do siblings share a MOTHER/FATHER?

A brother to sister (sibling to sibling DNA Test) works by testing a very large number of different DNA points (known as loci) in each person. Full siblings share a lot more DNA in common than do unrelated persons, and also, half siblings share more DNA in common than unrelated persons, but not as much as full siblings. So this test looks at the amount of DNA sharing and uses DNA statistics to evaluate the amount of DNA sharing to deduce biological relationship. Because we are evaluating the amount of DNA sharing, it is helpful to have DNA from any parents or other siblings of the persons being tested, since that drastically helps the evaluation process by allowing us to pin-point exactly which DNA is more likely to have come from each sisters Father in particular.

Are my Twins IDENTICAL?

Identical twins occur when a single fertilized egg splits sometime within the first few days after fertilisation. This accounts for around 30% of twins. When the young embryo splits, each half takes the exact same DNA, so identical twins have exactly the same genetic makeup.


$119 - FREE EXPRESS SHIPPING

Are my twins SEMI-IDENTICAL?

Semi-identical or fraternal twins are created by two separate eggs and two separate sperm that are fertilised during the mother's same menstrual cycle. These types of twins share half their genetic information and are no more or less similar than normal siblings.

Animal DNA Testing

BIRD SEXING DNA TEST

A Bird DNA Sexing test is a technique performed by laboratories to determine whether a bird is a male or a female. Testing is done by detecting the presence of different sex chromosomes found in the bird DNA sample provided such as a blood spot or a feather sample. Our bird DNA sexing test is fast and reliable, performed in Australia, we issue results in 5 business days and we can also test eggshell samples.
DNA Solutions has been testing birds since 1997, our laboratory is Australian and all your samples will be tested and analysed in Australia. Over the years we have developed a large database of avian species and we will be able to determine if your bird is a male or a female with the highest accuracy.
Our DNA Bird Sexing expertise has enabled us to streamline our methods and provide you with the quickest turn around time in Australia: 5 business days from the reception of the samples in our laboratory as well as a 48 hour express service.
We are able to test blood samples, feather samples and eggshell samples.

Beak & Feather Testing

Psittacine circoviral disease (PCD) affects parrots and related species, it’s a virus that kills feather and beak cells and may be fatal to birds that contract it. The symptoms may be:
 
  • Feather distortion or balding
  • Beak deformities
  • Diarrhea

This virus can affect particularly juveniles and young adults, although it can affect birds of all ages.
The Beak and Feather disease is highly contagious for birds and can be transmitted orally (eating from the same feeders) or in faeces or feathers.
If you think one of your birds may have beak & feather disease, we strongly recommend that you keep that bird in a separate cage and send us both feather and blood samples for Beak & Feather DNA Testing, your results will be ready in 5 business days from the reception of the samples at our laboratory.

Package: Beak & Feather Testing + DNA Sexing

A special discount rate applies when you purchase both DNA sexing with Beak & Feather testing.  To choose choose this option, click on the button, download the form, tick the appropriate box and mail the samples to us, your results will be ready 5 business days after the reception of the samples at our laboratory.

PSS DNA Testing

We offer a “PSS Test” for the autosomal recessive genetic disorder in pigs, Porcine Stress Syndrome (PSS), also known as Malignant Hypothermia-Susceptibility. The DNA test for PSS is a superior alternative to the Halothane Challenge test, which in 2005 ceased to be recommended by the Australian Veterinary Association (AVA) due to potentially negative consequences with respect to animal welfare. Not only is our DNA Solutions’ PSS test able to be performed without stress to the animal, it determines whether the animal has two, one or no copies of the defective gene; that is, whether an animal has the disorder, is a carrier, or is free of the defective gene. As a recessive disorder, PSS only occurs in animals which have two copies of the defective form of the gene. Animals with only one copy of the defective gene are carriers of the disorder, and do not themselves exhibit the full-blown syndrome; however, they do exhibit some traits that fall between the PSS condition and that of normal, healthy pigs.
The PSS disorder is a consideration for pig farmers and breeders, as it may result in the following: sudden death during transportation; pale, soft and exudative (PSE) meat which is rejected at the abattoir; and, halothane sensitivity (hyperthermia on exposure to this anaesthetic). On the other hand, some breeders like to maintain carrier animals due to perceived superiority in growth and carcass quality characteristics. Managing stock in which the defective gene is present benefits from knowledge about the genetic status of the animals. The affected gene in the case of PSS expresses a skeletal muscle form of the Ryanodine Receptor. The defective and normal forms of this gene differ by a single base-pair mutation that alters the amino acid sequence of the Ryanodine Receptor. This single base-pair difference also alters the recognition sequence of a restriction enzyme, permitting the digestion of the defective gene form, but not the wildtype by that enzyme. The PSS Test may be performed on any number of biological materials that can be acquired by minimally invasive means, and yield a sufficient quantity of DNA; the recommended sample is 6-10 pulled-out hairs (hairs that have fallen out by themselves do not provide sufficient DNA), although oral swabs, blood and tissue samples are also reliable sample types.
