Kinship DNA testing is another term for sibling DNA testing. It’s a process whereby DNA technology is used to establish whether brothers and sisters share the same mother and father, or share either the mother or the father. Full siblings is the term given to siblings with the same biological parents. Half-siblings are individuals who share only one biological parent, either mother or father. As reported last month, a Californian woman who was raised as an only child has now discovered she has 29 half-siblings after taking a DNA test.
How does kinship DNA testing work?
In the AlphaBiolabs’ sibling DNA test, the two alleged siblings need to provide a DNA sample. Full instructions are provided in our testing kits, which can be ordered online today for just $249 with guaranteed results or your money back.
Collecting the DNA samples is a simple process and only involves rubbing the inside of your cheek with a swab to collect cheek cells. There is no need for any blood samples. When these swabs are returned to our lab, the DNA is extracted from the cells. Our DNA scientists then use statistical analysis to evaluate the amount of DNA shared between the individuals tested. Full siblings always have more DNA in common than half-siblings, and half-siblings normally share more DNA than unrelated individuals.
The results will be available in 3–5 working days after receipt of all samples in the lab.
Unlike paternity DNA testing, which always provides a conclusive result, 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 its inconclusive rate down to 24%. This means that one in four people will not get a definitive outcome. However, if you use our sibling DNA testing service and don’t get a conclusive result, we guarantee to refund the price of your sibling test. What are you waiting for?
