What is Paternity Testing?

Paternity testing provides scientific evidence of whether a man can be a child's biological father. Paternity is determined by comparing the child's DNA with the DNA profile of the alleged father.


When should I purchase a legal paternity DNA test?

A paternity or maternity test can be used to establish the parenthood of an individual for a court case such as child support, social security, or child custody. The test can also be used to support placing a parent’s name on a birth certificate. Labcorp places the highest emphasis on following legal chain of custody with your sample, so your sample will be valid evidence in a legal setting. We employ the latest technology to provide the most accurate results for you. Our highly accurate tests exclude, on average, 99.99% of non-fathers. We provide safe, secure, and efficient transportation of your samples.

What kind of sample is tested in legal DNA tests?

The most common sample type is a buccal swab.  This sample is collected using a cotton swab that is gently rubbed on the inside of your cheek.  Blood samples are also acceptable.
