About our Sibling DNA Test
For $249, including your test kit and all lab fees, our Sibling DNA Test can help individuals determine whether they are full-siblings or half-siblings, with results in just 3 business days.
When both people have the same biological parents, they are classed as full-siblings. Half-siblings are individuals who share only one biological parent, either the mother or father.
When testing for sibling relationships, cheek swabs are used to collect DNA samples from each sibling. For the most conclusive result, we also ask for the biological mother's sample, if available.
The DNA laboratory will then determine the genetic profile of the possible siblings and will calculate a sibling DNA index or likelihood ratio.
A likelihood of greater than 10 indicates that the siblings are related, either full or half, but a likelihood of less than 0.1 does not support this.
A likelihood that falls between 0.1 and 10 is inconclusive, which means that a relationship cannot be determined, based on the data collected and analyzed. The higher the value of the sibling DNA index, the greater the chance that the two individuals tested are full biological siblings.
It is possible to analyze two individuals to determine whether they are more likely to share the same mother and father, share just one common parent, or be totally unrelated.

How do I collect the DNA samples?
Once you have received your kit, simply follow the instructions included to collect your samples.
Rub the swab gently and painlessly on the inside of the cheek to collect cheek cells. Enough swabs are provided to test two siblings and the biological mother, if available for testing.
If you would like to test three siblings, please select this option when placing your order, and additional swabs will be included in your kit (fees apply).
Is a parent's sample required?
For the most conclusive result, we do ask that the biological mother also provides a cheek swab sample, if possible.
However, this is not essential, and we can still perform a sibling DNA test without the mother’s sample.
Your test kit will contain enough cheek swabs to collect DNA from two siblings and the biological mother (if available).

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 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 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.
