What is it?

A DNA test provides a simple, accurate way of verifying a biological relationship between individuals.

All our DNA relationship tests work by analysing and comparing DNA samples to identify matching DNA markers.

The comprehensive range of DNA tests includes paternity, non-invasive prenatal paternity (NIPP), maternity, sibling, grandparent, aunt or uncle, Y chromosome, single profile genetic testing, and viability testing.
