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.
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.
