For New York residents, it is important to mention that DNA testing has to be prescribed by a physician or legal entity (court, USCIS, US Embassy or Consulate).
In that sense, AABB DNA TESTING offers a “One-Stop Shopping” service since we have a doctor on the premises who will issue the prescription for no additional fees. This even applies for the weekends.
Keep in mind that doctors will ordinarily charge the fee of an office visits, just to issue the prescription, not to mention the necessary time and energy that this consumes. You probably have enough issues to deal with and don’t need any further complications.
There are many reasons someone may want a paternity test. Perhaps a mother would like to confirm the father of her child. Or perhaps a father would like to confirm a child as his own. Or a grown child may want to know who his or her father really is. Whatever your reason for seeking a paternity test, it is important to understand how they work.
When we perform a paternity test, we usually collect buccal cells, or cheek cells, from inside a person’s cheek using a cheek swab made of cotton. We will need swab samples from both the child and the alleged father to be tested.
In some cases, people want a paternity test done before the child is born. In this case, we can refer you to Genetic specialists that will perform an amniocentesis procedure in which amniotic fluid is taken from the womb and used as a sample. However, there is a small risk of miscarriage when performing this procedure.
There is also a new way to perform a paternity test before the child is born, without a risk of miscarriage. Because some DNA from the fetus floats around in the mother’s bloodstream, we can take some of her blood and use that as the sample for the child.
After we have the DNA sample either from cheek cells, amniotic fluid, or blood, we can perform the DNA test.
Each person has a unique set of DNA. All of a person’s DNA put together is called a genome. When people are related, their genomes are more similar to each other than when they are not related.
When we compare the genomes of multiple people, we are able to see how similar the genomes are. This comparison is called DNA profiling or Genetic Fingerprinting, and is the same process used in criminal investigations to see if someone’s fingerprint or hair matches the genome of the suspect. For a paternity test with a female child, we use this method to compare the two genomes.
However, in performing a paternity test for a male child, this process of comparison becomes much easier. Instead of using the entire genome, we are able to compare just the Y chromosome from the child and the potential father because male children inherit their father’s Y chromosome.
After we perform the paternity test, you will receive a percentage result. This percentage represents the probability that the child and potential father are related. If the probability is 0% then they are not related. If they are related, the probability may be as high as 99.99%. These paternity tests are very accurate.
The cost of a paternity test is based on the type of paternity test you choose. There are two types: Legal paternity tests and Non-Legal paternity tests. Legal paternity tests are used in court to establish things such as mandatory child support. Non-Legal paternity tests are used for your own personal information. While Legal Paternity tests can cost between $100 and $500, Non-Legal paternity tests can be done for as little as $15 because they can be done from home. A Legal paternity test is more expensive because it must be done at an AABB-accredited DNA testing lab, such as our lab. Contact us today to schedule a paternity test appointment with the best DNA testing lab in NYC.
Forensic DNA testing is the testing of DNA samples for the purpose of solving crimes. Many crime shows depict forensic DNA testing with the capturing of different samples, such as blood and hair, from a crime scene. Is this an accurate depiction? Well, these samples can be used for DNA testing, but this isn’t the whole story. Forensic DNA testing can actually be done with a variety of DNA samples, and it turns out that this type of DNA testing is extremely accurate. Courts of law and other legal entities trust the accuracy of forensic DNA testing to the point that they will convict someone of a crime based entirely on DNA evidence.
Before we can test the DNA samples to solve a crime, we must obtain the DNA samples. DNA samples can come from a person’s hair, bodily fluids, skin cells, fingernails, toenails, and bones. It is surprising how many places one can find these samples. Such DNA samples can be found on clothing, sheets, towels, silverware, drinking glasses, used tissues, condoms, eye contacts, band-aids, cigarettes, gloves, tools, abandoned weapons, and more.
To collect the DNA samples, an investigator will go to the crime scene and gather these samples by taking the physical item with them in a sterile container, or by swabbing an item that may contain a person’s bodily fluid, such as a sample of blood or a sweaty door handle. The investigators will work carefully to ensure that their own DNA does not contaminate these valuable samples.
Once the DNA sample is collected, we must compare it to the DNA sample of a crime suspect. The DNA of both samples can be compared for relatedness in multiple ways:
This method of DNA testing is called DNA Profiling or DNA Fingerprinting. With this method, we take the samples of DNA found in the nucleus of a cell from the suspect and the crime sample and compare them to each other. The genomes- all of a person’s DNA put together- are compared side by side. The more similar the samples, the more likely the suspect is the person who committed the crime.
This method compares the DNA from the mitochondria of the suspect and the crime scene sample. Mitochondria are present in almost every cell in the body and help the cell produce energy to survive. We are able to use the DNA from this part of the cell for forensic investigations.
When the suspect is male, we are able to compare the Y chromosome of the suspect with that of the DNA from the crime scene. This method does not work with female suspects since females do not have a Y chromosome.
DNA testing is not only use to convict criminals in court, but also to exonerate innocent suspects as well. Forensic DNA testing can also be used for forensic paternity cases in which paternity must be proven, either for missing person identification or for proving rape or incest cases when pregnancy results. Many alleged criminals have been freed from prison, and even death row, due to their proven innocence from Forensic DNA testing.

Have you ever wondered if you’re actually related to someone who shares the same last name? Have you wondered where your ancestors probably lived and where they migrated to? Do you want to learn more information about that mystery part of your family tree? If so, family tree DNA testing can help you obtain this information.
We can perform family tree DNA testing in a variety of ways to help you learn more about yourself, your family, and where you came from.
Before we can test your DNA, we must obtain a DNA sample. We do this by collecting buccal cells, or cheek cells, from inside a person’s cheek using a cheek swab made of cotton. This is a painless, non-invasive method of gathering DNA samples. After we have your DNA sample, we will remove everything but the DNA itself.
Each person has a unique set of DNA. All of a person’s DNA put together is called a genome. When people are related by ancestry, their genomes are more similar to each other than when they are not related. When we compare the genomes of multiple people, we are able to see how similar their genomes are, and thus understand more about the common ancestry of those people.
1. Testing of your paternal line (Y-DNA testing)
Y-DNA testing is the testing of the Y chromosome in males to gather genetic information about that person’s paternal family line. Because females do not have a Y chromosome, they cannot take this test and will need to seek a different type of ethnic DNA testing. Y-DNA testing follows your direct paternal line and therefore allows you to gather historical and genetic information about people who share the same surname.
The testing of your mitochondrial DNA is known as mtDNA testing. Mitochondria are the organelles inside your cells that provide the cells with energy. These organelles contain their own DNA, separate from the rest of the cell, and therefore we are able to test this DNA on its own. You inherit your mitochondrial DNA from your mother, so this DNA testing can provide information about your genetic maternal line. Both males and females inherit their mother’s mitochondrial DNA and therefore both genders are able to take this type of ethic DNA test.
Autosomal DNA testing is the testing of all of your DNA besides your sex chromosomes. This can be done for both males and females and is usually the best option for ancestry DNA testing. With Y-DNA and mtDNA testing, you will receive information about your paternal and maternal lines, which can go very far back in history, but the rest of your family tree will be a mystery. With autosomal DNA testing, however, we can piece your complete family tree together to help you learn more about your family history.
If you are interested in any of these types of family tree DNA testing, contact us today to schedule a family tree DNA test appointment with the best AABB-accredited DNA testing lab in NYC.
DNA testing for ethnicity is the testing of a person’s DNA to gain information about their ethnic background, based completely on their genes. With this type of DNA testing, you will be able to gain information on the background of your own genes and the genes of your family members.
Before we can test your DNA for ethnicity, we must obtain a DNA sample. We do this by collecting buccal cells, or cheek cells, from inside a person’s cheek using a cheek swab made of cotton. This is a painless, non-invasive method of gathering DNA samples. After we have your DNA sample, we will remove everything but the DNA itself.
Each person has a unique set of DNA. All of a person’s DNA put together is called a genome. When people are related by ethnicity, their genomes are more similar to each other than when they are not part of the same ethnic group. When we compare the genomes of multiple people, we are able to see how similar their genomes, and thus ethnicities, are.
Y-DNA testing is the testing of the Y chromosome in males to gather genetic information about that person’s paternal family line. Because females do not have a Y chromosome, they cannot take this test and will need to seek a different type of ethnic DNA testing.
The testing of your mitochondrial DNA is known as mtDNA testing. Mitochondria are the organelles inside your cells that provide the cells with energy. These organelles contain their own DNA, separate from the rest of the cell, and therefore we are able to test this DNA on its own. You inherit your mitochondrial DNA from your mother, so this DNA testing can provide information about your genetic maternal line. Both males and females inherit their mother’s mitochondrial DNA and therefore both genders are able to take this type of ethnic DNA test.
Autosomal DNA testing is the testing of all of your DNA besides your sex chromosomes. This can be done for both males and females and is usually the best option for ethnic DNA testing. With Y-DNA and mtDNA testing, you will receive information about your paternal and maternal lines, which can go very far back in history, but the rest of your family tree will be a mystery. With autosomal DNA testing, however, we can piece your complete family tree together to help you learn more about your genetic ethnicity.
If you undergo autosomal DNA testing, your results will come in the form of a percentage of ancestry. For instance, one person may have DNA ancestry that is 21% Japanese, 13% South African, and 66% Spanish.
With Y-DNA and mtDNA testing, your results will be a list of likely haplogroups. A haplogroup is an ethnic group that usually stems from a certain part of the world. For example, with mtDNA testing, your results might indicate that you are part of an L haplogroup, which indicates African ancestry. When you receive your DNA results, we will explain all of these results to you.

Deceased paternity testing is the testing of DNA from a deceased person in order to confirm the paternity of that alleged father to a child, either young or grown. Deceased paternity tests are actually quite common, as many people desire to establish legal paternity even after an alleged father has passed away. These tests are most often performed to establish a child as a legal heir to any assets of the alleged father, but we can perform deceased paternity tests for other reasons as well.
When we perform a traditional paternity test, we usually collect buccal cells, or cheek cells, from inside a person’s cheek using a cheek swab made of cotton. We take samples from both the child and the alleged father to be tested.
We then use these DNA samples to compare their genomes side-by-side. A person’s genome is all of their DNA put together and is unique from anyone else’s genome. However, when people are related, their genomes are more similar to each other than when they are not related. When we compare the genomes of multiple people, we are able to see how similar the genomes are. This comparison is called DNA profiling or Genetic Fingerprinting, and is the same process used in criminal investigations to see if someone’s fingerprint or hair matches the genome of the suspect.
Using buccal cells to perform a paternity test is traditionally how we do things in our lab. However, if the alleged father is deceased, performing a paternity test becomes more complicated.
When the alleged father is deceased, we look to non-standard methods of paternity DNA testing. In the absence of living buccal cells, you can bring in other samples of DNA from a deceased person such as blood, hair, or nail clippings, if possible. This is the preferred method for deceased paternity testing.
However, we recognize that gathering these DNA samples from a deceased person will not always be possible. If you are not able to provide any such DNA samples from the deceased person, the next best option is to test the DNA of a close relative to the alleged father. The closer the relative to the alleged father, the more accurate the test results will be.
An example of a close DNA relative of the alleged father is the alleged father’s biological parents. In this case, we prefer to test both of his parents, if possible, to increase the accuracy of the paternity test. However, testing only one of his parents can still be helpful.
If for some reason we are unable to test the DNA of the alleged father’s parents- for example, they themselves are deceased- then the DNA of another close relative can be used. But keep in mind that the accuracy of the paternity test will decrease the more distant the relative is from the alleged father.
After we perform the paternity test, you will receive a percentage result. This percentage represents the probability that the child and alleged father are related. If the probability is 0% then they are not related. If they are related, the probability may be as high as 99.99%.
Traditional paternity tests are extremely accurate. But deceased paternity tests can be less accurate if we are not using the alleged father’s DNA. The more distant the relative, the less accurate the test will be. Therefore, it is best to obtain DNA samples from the deceased father if at all possible.

Many people desire to know their personal genetic history, even from before they were born. Ancestry DNA testing can play a part in understanding your history.
Ancestry DNA testing is the testing of your DNA to find out how much of your genetic makeup was inherited from certain parts of the world. Have you always been told you were part Native American, or mostly German? Now, there is a way to actually find out who you really are.
To perform an ancestry DNA test, we will first need a DNA sample. We usually collect buccal cells, or cheek cells, from inside a person’s cheek using a cheek swab made of cotton. This is a painless, non-invasive method of gathering DNA samples. After we have your DNA sample, we will remove everything but the DNA itself.
Each person has a unique set of DNA. All of a person’s DNA put together is called a genome. When people are related by ancestry, their genomes are more similar to each other than when they are not related. When we compare the genomes of multiple people, we are able to see how similar their genomes are.
Because the human genome contains around 3 billion base pairs (different chemical structures that make genes), when we test DNA for ancestry, we do not test all of these base pairs. All humans, regardless of race or gender, share around 99.9% of their DNA with all other humans. Therefore, to test all 3 billion base pairs of a genome that is 99.9% similar to all other human genomes would be redundant. Instead, we look at specific regions in the genome in which most humans have different base pairs. It is the comparison of these differences that tell us where your ancestry is similar to that of other people from the same regions.
We will be able to tell you what percent of your DNA has ancestry in certain parts of the world. For instance, one person may have DNA ancestry that is 21% Japanese, 13% South African, and 66% Spanish.
Keep in mind, though, that DNA ancestry is different than DNA heritage. Our ancestry DNA testing will tell you how much of your DNA was inherited from people of a particular descent, and not necessarily where your ancestors actually lived. This is why you may receive different ancestry results from your siblings, who may have inherited a different amount of DNA from the same people.
Most importantly, you will want to pick a DNA testing lab that is AABB accredited, like our lab. In the event that some of your ancestry results could be used for legal matters (such as obtaining benefits for being a certain percentage Native American), you will need your results to come from an accredited lab. Courts will not accept DNA evidence that is from a home test kit or from a non-accredited laboratory.
In the state of New York, you are required to have a physician or legal official prescribe the DNA test in order for you to have one taken. We have a physician on our premises that can fulfill this obligation for you, making our DNA testing lab a one-stop-shop for all of your DNA testing needs.

Tapping into your randomized genome and discovering who YOU ARE in a diverse world using your DNA can be a very exciting journey. Family tree DNA testing has the ability to reveal every unique thing about YOU. No one has an 100% matched DNA genome as another person. We provide DNA test that come with notarized documents stating the legitimacy of the results with a 99.9% accuracy. This is possible because we have taken samples of DNA from millions of individuals. Placing them into a database that has allowed us to match you with similar genetic genomes from regions all over the world.
DNA tests can be used for a variety of reasons. We have the ability to share with you, your family genealogy at a cheaper rate than the competitors. Test are processed based on the circumstances in which the DNA is being tested. Currently, DNA testing has allowed us to locate and determine the regions in which your ancestral counterparts resided WORLD-WIDE. Some ethnicities have it against their beliefs to share/donate their DNA to a scientific organization that identifies and compares them to others. While most of the world is identifiable.
The most common question that leads to taking a DNA test is “Who Am I?” and “Where Are My Roots?”. DNA testing was developed around the 1960’s and has since then been the leading identifier in discovering who we are as individuals. Currently, when researching the right route to take; you tend to run into a lot of competitor companies claiming to produce the same results for X amount of dollars.
The TRUTH is a company can only match you with the most results if they have someone with similar DNA already in their database. There are multiple ways in which your DNA can be studied to produce results. Some companies tend to focus on the paternal chromosome ‘Y’ which will show paternal genetics and/or some companies tend to focus on your ‘mitochondrial DNA’ which will show maternal genetic traits.
Ever wondered how much it costs to know WHO YOU ARE? DNA testing currently ranges from $10 – $400 depending on the route in which you are willing to take. When we provide services, we provide a cheaper rate than most competitors that include finger-printing photographer, along with the collection kit. Remember, quality over quantity. When getting a DNA test don’t break the bank trying to yield more results. Instead do your RESEARCH and determine which company fits best with YOU.
After we receive your sample through buccal swab, we immediately give you results within ten business days. While waiting for the results, it is best for you to have some history about your familial background. We can take anywhere from 4 days to 12 weeks.
Waiting for results can be an exciting especially when you may have idea about your heritage. We enjoy showing YOU your genealogy. Along with the map and circled regions, you are given a percentage of how much of a particular region was found matched to your DNA.
When we receive your results, most companies provide you with a map of the world with regions circled on the map to show you the location of similar genetic matches. The results can destroy an entire lineage of WHO YOU THOUGHT you were. Families across the globe are finding that their family heritage is not what they thought it was. Some companies make it possible for you to be linked to distant family members.

Can we be preventing disease through DNA testing? DNA testing has been around for many years and has become invaluable in terms of providing us with a wealth of information. Many people associate DNA testing simply with paternity but there is so much more to this type of testing.
One of the crucial areas in which DNA testing can help is to provide information about diseases that you may be predisposed to. We all want to ensure we maintain good health but this can be very difficult if you are not even aware that you are at increased risk for certain health issues and diseases.
By having DNA testing carried out, it is possible to see whether you are predisposed to a wide range of diseases and health problems. This is something that can help you in a huge variety of ways. This testing allows you to find out what diseases and problems you are predisposed to and this is based on the presence of mutations relation to those diseases. By gaining this knowledge, you are better equipped to plan ahead, make changes to your life, or reduce the risk of the onset of the disease.
Some of the diseases that can be identified through DNA testing include:
This is just a sample of the different diseases that DNA testing can identify so if you find out that you are genetically predisposed to any of the diseases that can be tested for, you can take action accordingly. In short, DNA testing is able to give you a ‘heads up’ with regards to your health, which is something that can prove incredible invaluable when it comes to maintaining your health or preparing yourself for the future.
Once you receive your results from this type of DNA changes, you will then be better placed to decide what to do next. Depending on the diseases identified, you want to speak to your GP about making changes to medication or lifestyle.
If you would like to find out more about how DNA testing for disease works or you would like to make arrangements for testing, get in touch with the most established and reputable DNA testing center in NYC today.

Paternity DNA testing is carried out in order to determine who the biological father of a child is. If you have doubts as to who your biological father is or you want to determine whether you could be the biological father of a child, this type of test can prove invaluable. There are many reasons why people decide that they need to have this type of test carried out and in many cases it is simply because they want to know who their father or child is. However, there are also other reasons why people have this type of test performed.
A paternity DNA test is a pretty simple process and one that is used regularly. When we are born we inherit half of our DNA from our father so carrying out a DNA test can determine whether part of a child’s DNA is a match with the assumed father that is also being tested. This then provides you with conclusive information as to the identity of the biological father.
There are various reasons why you may need to have a paternity test carried out to find out about your biological father or child. Of course, for many it is simply a case of wanting to know once and for all who their biological father or child is, as this is not something that anyone wants to have doubts about. However, some of the other reasons why people decide to have a paternity DNA test include:
By using paternity testing experts to find out this information, you can benefit from greater peace of mind and conclusive results. When you use a reputable facility, the results are checked and verified to ensure you never have to worry about inaccuracies or even mixed up results.
If you need to have a paternity DNA test carried out for any reasons, you need to ensure you go to a reputable facility with experience staff to carry out the testing. You can do this by contacting one of the leading DNA testing centers in NYC.
There are many people that want to find out if a person is their grandparent or not. Confusion and doubt can occur for various reasons and even though you may have always considered a person as your grandparent, if there is any doubt it is only natural that you want to find out conclusively. Testing to find out if someone is a grandparent to you can be done with one or both grandparents and can help to confirm your family relationship.
In some cases, grandparent testing is used to establish paternity where the father is not available to be tested. This is another common reason for having this type of test. Other reasons include immigration cases, inheritance reasons, and for social security benefit reasons. The test is simple one that can be carried out with ease although the time it takes to analyze the result will depend on whether the mother is also available for testing.
If you need to find out whether someone is your grandparent or you want to use a grandparent to find out about paternity, you need to find a DNA testing center that offers grandparent DNA testing. You should be able to get the test carried out whether you have both grandparents available for testing or just one. When you contact a facility about having this type of test, you need to find out information such as:
