Are over the counter DNA test accurate?

Over the counter DNA test

Some may wonder whether an over the counter DNA test is as reliable and accurate as a DNA test carried out by a medical professional, or for legal purposes. The reality is, the science is exactly the same, the only difference is you can take the test in the privacy of your own home and without the need for medical assistance*.

An over the counter DNA test can give you answers to those lingering and often painful questions about the true biological relationship between two or more individuals. When a son doubts the true identity of his father, or in the case of an individual looking for confirmation of his maternal heritage with only one aunt remaining, half-siblings questioning their connection, or grandparents with a question mark over grandchildren – whatever your family circumstance, a DNA test can help you determine the truth about your biological connections.

At AlphaBiolabs, we have been supporting customers in their journeys of family discovery since 2004. Our range of peace of mind, relationship DNA testing kits are specially designed with our customers in mind – we know you want confidentiality, we know you want speed and we know you want accuracy.
