From just $249, including your test kit and all lab fees, an AlphaBiolabs Aunt DNA Test can help determine the biological relationship of a child to a possible aunt, with results in just 3 business days.
This test is often used in situations where the assumed mother or father has passed away or is unwilling to take a DNA test.
This means that the only way to determine a biological relationship between an aunt and their possible niece/nephew is by performing a DNA test on the assumed aunt.
AlphaBiolabs’ Aunt DNA test (also known as an avuncular test) compares a child’s DNA profile with a possible aunt's. Since a child inherits half of its DNA from each biological parent, the DNA comparison can reveal whether the child has inherited DNA from the suspected aunt.
Once the participants have had their DNA samples tested, AlphaBiolabs can calculate a combined likelihood ratio that will determine the probability of a biological relationship.
This is not the same as a paternity test, which is more conclusive. Aunt DNA testing will produce genetic profiles of the participants and determine probabilities. If a probability of relatedness is 90% or higher, it is highly likely that the aunt is related to the niece/nephew; under 10% probability would be considered unlikely to be related.
If the probability of relatedness falls between 10% and 90%, it is inconclusive, meaning a relationship cannot be statistically supported by the analysis.
What will the test cost?
You can order our Aunt DNA Test online now from just $249. The cost of the test includes your test kit and all lab fees.
The test kit includes enough cheek swabs to test one potential niece/nephew, one potential aunt, and a mother/father (where possible).
If you would like to test more than one potential niece/nephew, you can select this option when placing your order (additional charges apply).
What is the difference between the standard and the enhanced test?
Our standard aunt test is already industry-leading, as it analyzes 25 DNA markers (the industry standard only analyzes 16-21 markers).
What makes AlphaBiolabs unique is that we can also analyze up to 45 DNA markers. This allows more genetic material to be analyzed, which strengthens the result and provides additional reassurance.
This is ideal for customers who want the most powerful DNA test available.
It is also particularly useful in tests of a more complex nature, such as an aunt test, where the chance of obtaining a conclusive result will always be lower than the more straightforward paternity or maternity tests. This is because the DNA hasn’t been directly inherited. The enhanced test will increase the chance of obtaining a conclusive result.

Our test results are accurate, but you may not get a conclusive result
AlphaBiolabs' Aunt DNA Test is extremely accurate. However, due to the nature of aunt DNA testing, you may not get a conclusive result.
Aunt DNA testing can be up to 40% inconclusive. We have worked hard to reduce that rate to just 28% for an AlphaBiolabs Aunt DNA Test. This means that one in four people will not get a decisive answer.
This test comes with a money-back guarantee. If we can't give you a conclusive result, we will refund the price of your test.
Can I send kits to two addresses?
Yes, AlphaBiolabs can mail your Aunt DNA Test kits to two different addresses.
You will find the option to list a 2nd address when you check out.
Both test kits will be sent out in plain packaging, for full confidentiality.
What is peace of mind testing?
At AlphaBiolabs, we offer peace of mind testing with all our DNA testing kits.
As the name suggests, a peace of mind DNA test is for personal use only.
The results of these tests can give you the answers you need, but they cannot be used for legal purposes or in court proceedings.
Peace of mind tests also allow you to collect your samples quickly and easily at home, without the need to use a more costly and time-consuming third-party to verify the DNA sample collection.
Our Aunt DNA test money-back guarantee
AlphaBiolabs guarantees that we will produce the most accurate results possible from your DNA test samples.
In the rare case that we cannot provide a result for this test with the samples provided, we will either send a new kit and re-test at no cost to you, or offer a 100% no-hassle refund.
