Paternity testing services may be very prevalent in your family life. The question is, how confident are you that your dad is your ‘real dad?’ Paternity testing can be a sensitive subject, but it’s not as uncommon as you might think. These simple tests provide clear, scientific evidence to whether a man is a child’s father. In today’s blog, Dynamic DNA Labs breaks down what you can do with your paternity test results.
Discover Your Biological Father
Paternity testing services are simple. All they require is a DNA sample from both the alleged father and the child who is involved. This DNA sample is taken from the inside of the cheek, making the process pain-free. From each person’s sample, they can extract enough DNA to conclude a match between the two individuals. Because the father shares 50% of the DNA with the mother, the results will be very apparent.
How to Read the Paternity Test
Each paternity test’s results are displayed similarly. There are typically three columns: one with the child’s allele size, one with the alleged father’s allele size, and then each locus. A locus is a term for the DNA markers that are being tested. For the suspected father to indeed be the biological father, he must match at least one of the numbers at each of the fifteen markers. If they do not match, the alleged father-son match is incorrect. Often, there is a probability percentage at the bottom of the page to make the reading easier.
Paternity Test Accuracy
DNA based paternity tests are the most accurate. Often if the test comes back with conclusive evidence that the alleged father is the biological father, it will be about 99.9% accurate. Paternity test services can provide this accuracy because of the matching in DNA. If you are still doubtful of the paternity test results, a great way to ensure the DNA is from both the child and the alleged father is to have them do it in front of you. Witnessing them participate in the test would make sure that the DNA samples are only from those you want to test.
