Our paternity DNA test is for establishing whether a tested male is the biological father of the child. This test is for personal information only, if you require a test for any legal purposes, then please give us a call on 0191 543 6405. You may choose between our 4-working day or 2-working day turnaround.
Once you have placed your order, the testing kit will be dispatched the same day (if ordered before 4pm) by first class post. This kit includes a consent form (to be signed by each participant, if a child is under 16 an individual with parental responsibility must sign on their behalf), 3 sterile swabs, a prepaid return envelope, a DNA testing information sheet and our terms and conditions. Please note, we highly recommend that the mother of the child participates where possible, this makes the results much more conclusive. For this reason we also include a swab for her and will process her DNA sample free of charge.
Our Geneblitz paternity test proves with 100% accuracy if a man is, or is not, the alleged father of a child. Conversely, a Geneblitz paternity test proves that a tested man is the alleged father of a child with at least 99.99% certainty (if the mother is involved in the testing process). Please note, this figure may be reduced if the mother of the tested child does not participate in the test.
Our laboratory only accepts cheek cell samples, as we find it is the most painless, quick and easy method of obtaining a good quality DNA sample. Every person providing a sample for a Geneblitz DNA test must give their consent for the test, this is done by signing the consent form provided with the sampling kit. We will not process samples for any paternity test unless we have the signed (written) consent of each of the adult participants. If a child under 16 is involved, a person with parental responsibility for the child (or children) must sign consent on their behalf. In cases where the father signs consent for a child under the age of 16, we will ask for evidence of parental responsibility such as the full birth certificate.
