DNA Maternity Home test Kit Buccal Mouth Swab Supplies


What happens at the Lab?

In a DNA maternity test, a buccal swab (mouth swab) is collected from both the child and the alleged mother.

The swabs collect cells which contain DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid). This DNA serves as a unique “genetic blueprint,” akin to a fingerprint, distinguishing each individual.

Upon reaching the laboratory, the DNA is isolated from the cells, and specific segments of the DNA undergo amplification through a process called PCR (polymerase chain reaction). Our test meticulously examines 16 to 27 of these specific segments, known as short tandem repeats (STRs). STRs are segments of DNA in which a short sequence is repeated multiple times.



The DNA pattern of the child is then compared to that of the alleged mother. As a child inherits half of their genetic information from each of their biological parents, this comparison can conclusively establish whether the alleged mother is indeed the biological mother of the child.

Each kit contains painless, easy-to-use mouth swabs.

If the parties to be tested live in different cities, we can split the kit for you and send the kit components to different addresses. Since they are individually barcode labelled, the samples will still be tested together once they arrive at the laboratory. To order a split kit, simply enter the following information in the comments box of the order form when you check out:

“Please split this kit. Send the alleged mother’s portion of the kit to (Alleged mother’s name and shipping address), and send the child’s portion of the kit to (Child’s name and shipping address).”

An extra shipping fee of $10 will be automatically applied for each additional address within the US. Split kits will be shipped out using USPS First Class Package Service.

Maternity testing is very helpful in cases of adoption reunification and IVF (In-Vitro Fertilization) where a mother wishes to conclusively determine that she is the biological mother of a child.

The results of a Maternity Test are conclusive. This means you will know with 100% certainty if the alleged mother is not the biological mother of the child, or >99.99% certainty if the alleged mother is the biological mother of the child. If you still have questions about the results of your test, please contact us.

Both the private and the legal test provide the same conclusive results. The only difference between the two are whether the sample collection is performed and witnessed by an unbiased individual, and whether it follows a chain-of-custody.

There is no difference in the accuracy between the private knowledge test and the legal test. However, for results to be used as legal evidence in court, proper steps must be taken during sample collection. A chain-of-custody must be performed in order to ensure witnessing and verification. The “court admissible” version of the private kit contains all documents required for third party witnessing – such as from a doctor or a lawyer – and the results can be used in court. If the results are to be used in court, the court admissible private kit, or the legal test should be chosen.

The turnaround time for DNA Maternity testing is 1 to 3 business days from the date samples are received by our laboratory. The results of the test are provided immediately upon completion.

The standard method of collecting samples for a Maternity Test is by using mouth swabs. However, if you wish to submit an unusual sample such as a toothbrush, razor etc. we are able to process it as a Forensic Sample. Due to the customized nature of each item, the cost will be higher than if standard mouth swabs are used. If you wish to send in a forensic sample, please visit Forensic Tests.

Yes! Our mouth swabs are designed to be quick, easy-to-use, non-invasive and painless. Simply rub the inside of the baby’s cheek with the buccal (mouth) swab. For collection instructions, visit our Support Center.
