Opt for a home paternity test if you only wish to clear your paternity doubts. The home test has no legal validity. Including the mother’s DNA sample can help provide a more accurate result although most tests are done without the mother’s sample. In cases where test participants live in different states or countries, EasyDNA can send out kits to more than one location. The cost of the test is $119 for a test with one father and child.

Accurate

There is no doubt with the result of paternity test. Results provide the highest levels of accuracy which means you will have the answers you need. All our paternity test results are carried out on 21 genetic markers. We also test the amelogenin sex gene to ensure our clients do not mix up samples. If the alleged father is the biological father, the results will show a probability of paternity of 99.99% or higher. If he is not the biological father, our paternity test will exclude the alleged father with a probability of 100%.

Easy to do

Collecting samples could not be easier! Our kit has been specially created with our client’s in mind and we have ensured a sample collection that is quick and that can be done in the comfort of your own home. The oral swabs we provide inside our kit can be used on children and adults and are absolutely painless use. With oral swabs, our chances of successful DNA extraction of 95%.

Prefer to have your samples collected by a professional?

EasyDNA can organise sample collection by a third party professional in your home or at a clinic – in other words we can organise a sampler to visit the home or office of all individuals taking part in the test to collect their sample or alternatively, we can organise an appointment at a clinic where individuals taking part in the test will have an appointment fixed to have their samples collected. Both these services are ideal if you wish to have the peace of mind the sample collection is carried out to a T or if there are issues of trust and you wish to avoid attempts by any of the parties involved in the DNA test at altering the result or cheating in any way. EasyDNA includes a flexible option for separate appointments. The service is offered starting at 40$ per person for home paternity testing and peace of mind relationship testing.
