Our grandparent DNA test can be used to establish a biological relationship between an individual and their alleged grandfather and/or grandmother.

Please note that the results for more complex relationship tests are not usually as conclusive as standard paternity tests. This can result in cases where a relationship may exist but we are unable to detect it, simple due to the way in which the DNA has been inherited.
To make the results more conclusive, we strongly recommend that the mother(s) of the participants in the test take part where possible. For this reason we also include a swab for one mother and will process her DNA sample free of charge.
Our laboratory only accepts cheek cell (buccal) samples, as we find it is the most painless, quick and easy method of obtaining a good quality DNA sample.
Our DNA testing kits contain everything you require to for a granparentage test.
The kit will include:
- Consent form
- 3 sterile swabs
- Prepaid return envelope
- DNA testing information sheet
- Terms and conditions
4 working day turnaround
Once you have placed your order, your DNA testing kit will be dispatched the same day (if ordered before 4pm) by first class post.
Your results will be issued by the requested turnaround time from receipt of your samples at our laboratory. Your results will be sent by email.
Human Tissue Act
Please be aware that in the UK the Human Tissue Act regulates the collection and analysis of any human tissue.
In order for your samples to be processed, all adults providing a cheek cell (buccal) sample for a DNA test must give their consent for the test by signing the consent form (provided in the DNA test kit). For a child (under 16) we require the consent of a person with Parental Responsibility for the child.
We will not proceed with testing samples until consent from all of the participants in the test has been obtained.
Purchase a DNA testing kit (£7.00) or a complete DNA test (£145.00) below.
