DNA is the genetic information stored in the cells of our body and is a combination of the DNA of both of our biological parents. Therefore, when situations or circumstances arise in life that lead to the need to verify one's biological relationship with another person or persons, a DNA kinship test comes into play, which can be used to determine paternity, confirm maternity, consanguinity, as well as to determine the zygosity of twins or the origin of family lines.
Descent tests analyse DNA with so-called STR markers, which can confirm or exclude the relationship of the tested persons with certainty. We recommend that you approach kinship testing responsibly and after considering all the possible consequences that the results of such an analysis may have for the family.
Sample collection is completely painless and takes no more than 5 minutes. It can be obtained by oral swab or blood collection. You can also swab your oral cavity in the comfort of your own home, then just send it to us by post. For blood collection, it is necessary for all people tested to come to our outpatient clinic. All tests can be performed anonymously if required.
