Parentage Test Service Procedure Q&A

The principle of Parentage Test

The paternity test compares the DNA of the testee (the child) with the alleged father to determine if half of the DNA between them is identical. The test requires the testee (the child) and the alleged father's blood or buccal sample. We will use the 15+1 locus analysis system to calculate the probability of parentage.
