What is “Peace of Mind” Paternity Testing?

The DNA Home Kit contains everything you need to take a “Peace of Mind” Paternity test.

The samples you take will then be used to determine the biological relationship between all tested individuals.

It’s an affordable option for those who don’t need the DNA test for any specific legal purpose. Read more about legal testing here

Watch Vern explain how it works:

What the “Peace of Mind” Paternity Test is for:

This DNA home kit is strictly for personal use

If you are curious to confirm the biological relationship between a child and the alleged father, our DNA paternity Test can offer some peace of mind.

For a DNA paternity test to be recognised by the law courts and the Government of Australia, you would need a Legal Paternity Test.

How to do the "Peace of Mind" Paternity Test at home:

The DNA Home Kit includes swabs, forms and instructions you need to perform the DNA paternity test.

We also offer discreet testing options if you provide us DNA from used toothbrushes, fingernail clippings or hair root samples.

Once you’ve collected the samples, follow the home kit’s instructions on how to post them back to us for testing.

The actual testing is done at the laboratory in Melbourne.

At DNA Solutions, we understand how stressful the wait for the results can be, so for that reason, we offer the quickest turnaround time in Australia:

Your “Peace of Mind” Paternity Test will be performed in 3 business days from the reception of the samples at our laboratory.

You will receive the result via your preferred method of communication that you provided on the paperwork.

If you have any questions about the process, submit an enquiry or call 1800 000 362.

Frequently Asked Questions

All clients information and DNA test results are strictly confidential.

Results will only be issued to the person who signed the sample submission form.

We also request a password from you for your added protection and confidentiality.

Our DNA Tests are done within 3 business days, with the option of express results in 2 business days.

Some non-standard DNA tests may take a little longer. In essence times vary depending on how busy the laboratory is.

For our paternity testing, typically we get a result above 99.99% certainly.

Other relationship tests (ie. brother to sister tests) can vary between 99% to 99.9%. The eventual accuracy number depends on what type of DNA you have (how common or rare each point of DNA we test is in the population), and how many of these rare or common DNA types you share with the other person/s being tested.

To obtain accuracy, we want to compare a lot of DNA between each person, in this way the result can be more certain.

At DNA Solutions we test 24 regions of DNA in each person. This is 8 more than the industry standard (16). 

This makes testing for relationships vastly more accurate, and also increases certainly in various situations, such as when 1 of 2 brothers could be the father.

The Home DNA Paternity Test starts at $269.

If you need to test more than one father or child you don’t have to buy another test. 

Instead, when you fill out the order form you have the option to customise the test to your needs.

No.

We need the terms and conditions read and signed by one person who is taking responsibility for the test.

Paternity tests can be performed with samples from the Father and child only.

We can work with a variety of biological samples.

However, for paternity testing we recommend a mouth swab, as this is completely reliable and painless. Hair samples are also common but can be more difficult to take.

Children with fine hair, and elderly with grey hair, usually do not provide good hair specimens.

This is what our Home DNA Paternity Test is for.

Once you have placed your order, we will mail you a kit which has everything you need including instructions, swabs, DNA brochure, etc.

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 (above). 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.
