DNA Paternity Testing involves the determination of whether a tested individual is or is not the biological father of a child. It is an important and highly personal matter which affects a number of individuals, most importantly, the child. Orchid PRO-DNA is very sensitive to this and understands the importance of an accurate, confidential and timely service.
There are four kinds of DNA Paternity Tests:
Court Ready Test »
Specimen collection takes place in a third-party site and the results can be used in court or other legal proceeding.
Curiosity Test »
The cheek swab samples are taken at home without any Chain of Custody so the results cannot be used in a legal matter.
Prenatal Test »
The child isn't born yet but the mother and alleged father wish to determine paternity.
Deceased Alleged Father Test »
The alleged father is deceased but there are known living relatives or known personal effects from the alleged father which are available for testing.
