Can a DNA test prove half siblings?

A DNA test can prove half siblings. In fact, DNA testing is the most scientific and accurate way to prove that two or more individuals are biologically related.

Half-siblings share only one biological parent, either the mother or father. AlphaBiolabs’ sibling DNA testing can establish whether brothers and sisters share the same mother and father (full siblings), or share either the mother or the father (half siblings).

The sibling DNA test can be ordered from our website and mailed direct to your home. The procedure for collecting your DNA sample is very straightforward and simply involves each sibling rubbing the inside of their cheek with a swab to collect cheek cells. These swabs are then returned to our laboratory and the DNA is extracted from the cells. Our in-house scientists then use statistical analysis to evaluate the amount of DNA shared between the individuals tested. Full siblings will have more DNA in common than half-siblings, and half-siblings normally share more DNA than unrelated individuals.

Paternity DNA testing is more straightforward than sibling testing, and always provides a conclusive result. This is because a child inherits half its DNA from its mother and half from its father. It is therefore possible to identify which half of the child’s DNA is inherited from each parent. If the man undergoing DNA testing is the biological father, both child and father will share identical sections of DNA at each marker. If the tested man is not the biological father there will be differences in the DNA.

Sibling DNA tests are more complex. This means that you may not get a decisive answer. Across the testing industry, sibling DNA testing can be up to 40% inconclusive. In other words, four out of every 10 people will not get the result they have paid for.

AlphaBiolabs has been able to reduce the inconclusive rate down to 24%. However, should you use our sibling DNA testing service and not get a conclusive result, we guarantee to refund the price you paid for your sibling test.
