Paternity test without child knowing

Paternity test without child knowing

Can you do a paternity test without a child knowing? With AlphaBiolabs you can.

When you order an AlphaBiolabs’ home Peace of Mind DNA test, we mail a test kit out to an address of your choice. Collecting a DNA sample is a simple process. A mouth swab needs to be rubbed on the inside of the donor’s cheek. If the test is to determine paternity, a sample is needed from the alleged father, the child, and the mother if available.

Even though using a mouth swab to collect DNA is not invasive, it could lead to awkward questions from older children. “Why do you need to rub my mouth with a Q-tip?”. Thankfully, help is at hand with AlphaBiolabs’ toothbrush and nail DNA testing services. Consent is needed for anyone taking part in a DNA test. However, an adult with parental responsibility can provide consent for children under 16 years of age. This means that instead of rubbing a mouth swab on the inside of the child’s cheek, you can simply send in their regular used toothbrush. Alternatively, you could mail us their nail clippings. These discreet methods of DNA sampling mean the child doesn’t need to know about the paternity test.  

As with AlphaBiolabs’ paternity and prenatal paternity tests, nail and toothbrush DNA paternity tests examine up to 42 markers to determine which half of the child’s DNA is inherited from the father and which half is from the mother. If the man is indeed the biological father of the child, both will share identical sections of DNA at each marker. If the man is not the biological father, there will be differences in the DNA of both the man and child.

Paternity test in confidence

AlphaBiolabs also takes various steps to help minimize any chance of the company name being recognized in correspondence. All of our DNA paternity testing kits are mailed out in discreet plain packaging without branding or company logos. In addition, online payment transactions do not name AlphaBiolabs as the recipient on bank statements. All of our DNA testing is 100% confidential and data security is paramount.

A password is picked by the person who instructs the DNA paternity test. We therefore only discuss details of the testing with those who know the correct passwords or the answer to unique security questions. The results of the paternity test are sent as a pdf report that requires the password to open it. This means that the report cannot be opened by anyone else.
