AlphaBiolabs can assure you that its home paternity tests are accurate. As an ISO 17025-accredited laboratory, we meet the very highest international quality standards. Our DNA scientists examine up to 35 markers and test all exclusion results twice. In addition, our paternity test was ranked in 1st place out of 54 companies by the independent review site DNA Testing Choice, with an average rating of 5 out of 5 stars.

We offer three types of home paternity test

Our Peace of Mind home DNA testing kits can be easily bought online from our website and mailed direct to your home (or any other convenient address). We use plain packaging and no company branding to ensure that our DNA testing is 100% confidential. The testing kits include full instructions on how to collect your DNA samples. You simply need to rub a mouth swab (much like a cotton swab or Q-tip) on the inside of your cheek to collect some cells. These home paternity testing kits cost just $119 for results in 3–5 days (after the samples reach the lab).

Prenatal paternity tests can establish whether a man is the father of a baby, before the child is even born. The non-invasive test can be performed from as early as 6 weeks after conception (or 8 weeks after the last period). The test requires a blood sample from the mother and a mouth swab from the alleged father. The advanced procedure works by preserving and then analyzing the baby’s DNA that is found within the mother’s bloodstream. There is no risk to the unborn child or mother when taking this test (unlike an invasive prenatal test in which embryonic fluid is taken directly from the womb using a needle). Prenatal paternity testing costs $975 for confidential results in 7–8 working days.

AlphaBiolabs has also launched a new method of paternity testing using a toothbrush. A viability study will be conducted to analyze the toothbrush to see if a DNA profile can be achieved. If DNA can be analyzed, a paternity test can be performed in the usual way. An advantage is that sending in a regular used toothbrush allows for more discreet DNA sampling. This could be particularly useful in paternity quarrels to avoid awkward questions from older kids.

No father? No problem

If a father refuses to consent to a DNA paternity test, AlphaBiolabs can undertake alternative DNA relationship testing to establish a direct biological relationship via other family members. Grandparent DNA tests, for example, could prove a link between an individual and one or more of their father’s parents. In the same way, aunt DNA testing or uncle DNA testing can be performed on a father’s sister or brother to establish a biological relationship to a child. Sibling DNA testing can establish whether or not brothers and sisters have the same parent.
