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.


The PapaGen® test is a genetic analysis performed to determine paternity (the biological relationship between a man and a child). It is the only way to confirm or exclude paternity with certainty. The test can also be used to check the possibility of organ donation or the risk of hereditary disease.


The MamaGen® test is a genetic analysis carried out to confirm maternity, i.e. whether a woman is the biological mother of a child or, conversely, whether a person is the child of his or her mother. The test can also be used to check the possibility of organ donation or the risk of hereditary disease.


The Familia test is a genetic analysis performed to confirm a biological relationship. This test can also be used to confirm or exclude paternity without the direct involvement of the presumed father. In this way, paternity can be confirmed or ruled out by analysing the DNA of the father's parents, i.e. the child's grandparents.


DNA analysis which makes it possible to clearly determine whether twins are identical (monozygotic) or non-identical (dizygotic). Twins of different sex are very likely to be dizygotic.

After ordering the test, you will receive an email with detailed information. A DNA sample is most often obtained through an oral swab or blood sample. You can perform the oral swab yourself in the comfort of your own home using a collection kit which will be sent to you by mail together with instructions and other documents. You can have your blood drawn at your local physician's office or at our outpatient clinic. The result of the analysis will be sent to you by e-mail or by post as agreed. In the case of a positive result, we recommend an appointment for a genetic consultation. 

Frequently Asked Questions

The time required for the laboratory examination (sample analysis) and the delivery date of the result vary according to the type and complexity of the examination. Usually it is in the order of weeks, for complex tests up to several months. The delivery date of the result is indicated in the details of each test on our website. In urgent situations, e.g. for a woman with a newly diagnosed breast or ovarian tumour before surgery, the oncopanel cancer test is performed in STATIM mode and the result is available within 3-4 weeks, whereas in normal mode it takes up to 6 months.
Health insurance always covers genetic consultations recommended by the attending physician (usually a general practitioner, paediatrician, oncologist, gynaecologist or other specialist). During the consultation, a clinical geneticist will assess whether the indication criteria for testing for the predisposition genes are met; if so, the entire genetic test, including laboratory analysis of the sample and subsequent consultation with the geneticist/doctor, is covered by health insurance. If the criteria for the genetic testing are not met, the patient can pay for the selected/recommended test as a self-payment.
After making an appointment, you will come to our office where you will first fill out a personal and family history questionnaire, or you can download it from here on our website and fill it out in advance, in the comfort of your own home. Remember to bring it with you afterwards. This is followed by a consultation with a doctor who will compile your three-generation family tree and decide on the indication for laboratory genetic testing. We also recommend that you bring medical reports from recent important examinations.
Recommendation - a referral from the doctor who recommended the genetic consultation. Alternatively, a completed genetic family and personal history questionnaire, which can be downloaded here. However, the questionnaire can also be completed after you arrive at our office. Medical reports from previous examinations related to the requested genetic test. It is not necessary to be fasting for the genetic examination, so you can easily make an appointment in the afternoon.
It has been reported that approximately 5-10% of cancers are caused by inborn changes in certain genes. One of the main goals of predictive genetic testing is the early identification of people at risk. If risk predispositions (gene mutations) are detected, preventive follow-up at specialised centres is recommended, where possible cancers are detected early and the chances of successful treatment are increased. In the case of high-risk mutations, preventive surgery may be recommended to make the risk of cancer in a given organ virtually impossible (for example, removal of the breast glands or removal of the uterus and ovary in BRCA1 or BRCA2 mutation carriers).
If your first-degree relative (parents, siblings, children) develops colon cancer before the age of 45, your risk of developing this cancer is 5 times higher. If you have three first-degree relatives, your risk can be as high as 50%. In families with a history of recurrent bowel cancer or with a history of bowel cancer at a young age, it could be hereditary cancer syndrome (Lynch syndrome). In such cases, genetic consultation is recommended.
