Paternity DNA Testing provided by Test Me DNA.

Paternity Testing

DNA Paternity Testing is used to determine if a specific man is the biological father to a specific child. A paternity test will analyze the possible father and child’s DNA profiles. Then the 2 DNA profiles are compared to establish if there is a biological relationship.

With Test Me DNA our paternity tests generally include a 21 genetic marker test. Each genetic marker will have 2 numbers which are referred to as alleles. A child will receive 1 allele from their mother and 1 allele from their biological father. A biological father should match the child with at least 1 allele in each genetic marker.
