About our Sibling DNA Test
For $249, our Sibling DNA Test can help individuals determine whether they are full-siblings or half-siblings.
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, the DNA laboratory will 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.

Our test results are accurate, but you may not get a conclusive result
AlphaBiolabs' Sibling DNA Test is extremely accurate. However, due to the nature of sibling DNA testing, you may not get a conclusive result.
Sibling DNA testing has an inconclusive rate of 24%. 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 kits be sent to two addresses?
Yes, AlphaBiolabs can mail your Sibling 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 discreet, 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 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.
