Avuncular DNA Testing
Avuncular DNA testing also known as aunt or uncle DNA testing allows a full sibling of the alleged father or mother to participate in a DNA test. An avuncular DNA test will verify if a biological relationship exists between the alleged aunts or uncles and the target niece or nephew.
This type of testing is possible because we all inherit genetic material from our biological parents who, along with their siblings, have inherited their genetic material from their parents. Our genetic material will help determine our biological relationship with our aunts and uncles.
Including the biological mother is always suggested in relationship testing. Adding the biological mother helps prevent results from being inconclusive. If the biological mother is not available, the test can still be performed.
How Avuncular DNA Testing Works
Order Avuncular Testing
We can schedule an appointment for the individuals testing to obtain the necessary collection at one of our 1000+ testing centers.
Or you may choose to perform the collections at your convenience with an Avuncular Home Testing kit.
Performing a DNA collection is pain-free and simple. Four, Non-Invasive buccal swabs are utilized to easily collect each individuals DNA by lightly brushing each swab against the cheeks on the inside of the mouth. At minimal, each collection with every swab is performed for 10 to 15 seconds.
Get DNA Results
Avuncular test results are typically completed within 3 to 8 business days after the Testing laboratory has received all the necessary collections of the participating individuals.
Results are then provided over the phone and email. Mailed copies can be sent upon request.
