3 Paternity Testing Options

    DNA Home Kit For ‘Peace of Mind’ Paternity Testing

    The Home DNA Kit contains everything you need to take a peace of mind test Paternity Test.  This affordable option is for those who don’t need the DNA Test for any specific Legal purpose.

    The test uses a mouth swab from each person, or you can use a discreet sample (used toothbrush, nail clippings, hair roots, etc.)

    The actual testing in the laboratory is performed by testing a high number (24 regions) of DNA in each person. This is 8 more than the industry standard of 16 for ultimate in DNA testing accuracy. 

    In a standard paternity case (father, mother and child) the minimum paternity index for our test is 99.9999% 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 turnaround 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.

    REGIONS OF DNA TESTED

    Amelogenin, D3S1358, D1S1656, D2S441, D10S1248, D13S317, Penta E, D16S539, D18S51, D2S1338, CSF1PO, Penta D, TH01, vWA, D21S11, D7S820, D5S818, TPOX, DYS391, D8S1179, D12S391, D19S433, FGA, and D22S1045. 

    TESTING PROCESS

    The Paternity test is performed in 3 lab areas.

    Lab Area 1. DNA Extraction. Here we purify your DNA from the samples so they are in a sterile buffer solution

    Lab Area 2.  "DNA keys" are added to your DNA. Each "key" responds to one of the DNA regions listed (left).  The "keys" attach to your DNA and will reveal to us the type of DNA you have in each of these areas.

    Lab Area 3. The DNA is analysed using modern capillary electrophoresis DNA profiling machines (Applied Biosystems), and the DNA in each of the 24 regions is compared between father and child (and Mother if included). Note: Having the DNA of the mother increases the accuracy.

    Legal Paternity Test

    For a Paternity Test result to be recognised by law courts and the Government of Australia the paternity test must be conducted by a DNA laboratory with NATA and ISO 17025 Accreditation. 

    DNA Solutions is one such laboratory. Once you order the test, we organise for your mouth swab to be taken at one of our Australia-wide locations.  We will guide you through the paperwork required, which largely consists of completing a form, signing an affidavit and obtaining passport size photographs of each person being tested.

    There is a sample collection fee of $50 per person for the collection of samples (which is charged by the collection centres and paid by DNA Solutions on your behalf). The result will have the NATA seal required by judges to administer rulings, and by Government departments (such as to change a birth certificate). 

    DNA Solutions laboratory will test a large number of regions of DNA in each person (24 regions), 8 more than the industry standard of 16. Any exclusions (tested as not the father) will be tested a second time! If you need your legal test for the purposes of Immigration, as requested by the Department of Home Affairs, click here.

    Prenatal Paternity Test – (Risk Free)

    If you need a DNA test before birth DNA Solutions now can offer you a new prenatal paternity test that uses a normal blood samples from mother after nine or more weeks of pregnancy. You can order online today, or call us for more information. DNA collection from the mother and the alleged father included.

    *An additional payment of $700 is required before you receive your test results.

    Additional Information

    This is the only DNA test that is not performed at DNA Solutions laboratories, but at Alphabiolabs in the UK.  Because we have partnered with Alphabiolabs, the price you pay is less than you would pay going direct, and additionally your samples are shipped with DHL Express, at no cost to you.

    DNA is extracted from the alleged father’s and mother’s samples back at AlphaBiolabs’ laboratory. In-house geneticists then examine up to 35 short tandem repeat (STR) markers in these DNA profiles. The baby will have two copies of each STR marker, known as alleles: one is inherited from the father and the other from the mother. These alleles at each STR marker are compared between the donors. There needs to be a match with all STR markers tested for an inclusion of paternity.

    State-of-the-art equipment is used to separate the baby’s DNA from the mother’s DNA in the blood sample using single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) microarray technology. A technologically advanced technique known as Massively Parallel Sequencing (MPS) is then used to generate data from the samples that need to be analysed and interpreted.

    • Total Test cost $1695. ($995 down payment to start)
    • Easy and Safe
    • Available after 9 weeks of pregnancy
    • Uses trace fetal DNA found in a normal blood sample from the mother
    • Does NOT require amniocentesis or CVS, therefore has no risk to the baby
