A DNA test is a genetic test that aims to identify ancestral relationships on the basis of genes. To begin the genetic -testing process, the doctor takes a sample of the individual’s blood, hair, skin or amniotic fluid.
Autosomal DNA is present in the 22 pair of chromosomes the remaining 22 chromosomes that do not carry our sex determination. Autosomal DNA is responsible for recombining each generation so that the new born inherits a set of chromosomes from each parent. There is high level of accuracy in these tests and can confirm relationships from parents to second cousins.
YDNA is another type that focuses on the subject’s Y chromosomes. Therefore, it is only works on males to determine the paternal line. mtDNA is a type of DNA that is present in mitochondria. This cellular mitochondria transfer to an individual from their mother. Hence, it is perfect to determine the maternal line.
The sample of your saliva passes through a procedure, Buccal Swab. In this procedure, the doctors will collect the cells from the inside of your cheek. A lab technician carefully examines and processes it on a geno-typing chip. The cell membrane separates and breaks down by adding an enzyme solution to speed up the process. This gives the technician multiple results of variants in your genome. To separate DNA, it passes through electrophoresis which involves using an electric field for separating.
The lab then sends results to a genetic counselor, for further analyzing of the genetic data. Each person you interact with has a DNA similar to yours. However, minor different make you unique from them. To test newly born babies, doctors would take the blood from their heels. This determines whether the baby has a genetic disorder or not.
To conduct a DNA test at home, you can purchase a test kit. This alternative is convenient because it secures your privacy and thanks to the advances in genetic science, it saves you the hassle of going to a doctor. Home testing determines the parents of the individual by taking a sample of their hair. It comes with a swab for the mother and father and uses the same buccal swab that doctors use in saliva collection method. A lab tests the sample of hair and saliva.
Both testing methods produce accurate results. However, slight mistakes during the home kit testing process and packaging can interfere with the accuracy of results. If you are planning to conduct a home test then make sure you read all instructions behind the kit. It is an advanced process and the saliva swab collection method is actually an equivalent to blood sample testing. It helps give a clear idea of biological relationships and maternal/paternal lines. These results sometimes help solve visa related complications as well.
To conclude, DNA testing using the typical procedure and going to the doctor physically is what most people prefer going through. This may be because they are not aware of the home-kit testing procedure. If you have any doubt and skepticism in your mind, it is best that you meet a doctor immediately to discuss them.

What is parental DNA testing? The most important and popular use of DNA testing is the confirmation of the child’s biological parents. The confirmation of the child’s biological parents is crucial for clearing away doubts regarding the child’s birth. It is also very decisive for children’s rights and custody during conflicts or divorce between the parents.
Although other biological identification tests were in use before the advent of DNA testing process, but blood typing, HLA test, and serological testing were less accurate for determining biological relations. After the introduction of DNA testing during 80s, scientists discovered the potential of DNA testing for identifying biological relationships.
DNA is the unique genetic make-up of an individual. When a baby comes in this world, the mother and father pass on half of their DNA to the baby. The baby’s DNA is a mix of the parent’s DNA with a unique sequence.
For the parental DNA testing process, we collect a small buccal sample of an individual, and then we obtain and examine the DNA sequence. We then compare the DNA from the samples of the alleged father or mother. The 0% matching gives a negative result. For a positive result, the probability between the parent and the child should be 99.9% or greater.
Although the DNA testing process is highly advanced and we perform it very carefully, there are possibilities of false results. DNA tests from proper and certified labs and research centers have hardly any chances of false results. But the following situations can alter the results of a paternal DNA test.
If the DNA paternity test is done for a legal case, either of the parties might want to get hold of the test result and tamper it. Tampering test results is nearly impossible under strict regulations and when a proper and certified lab is performing the test. However, if any party can get hold of the result, they can tamper it for their gain.
Deliberate fraud is not the only reason for false positive and negative results. Errors by the lab during the test process can also give inaccurate results. If you suspect that your test result is incorrect, this might be the reason, and you should have another test.
Even if the candidates are have a relation, the DNA test will not give a 99% probability in usual cases. However, in some instances, it is possible. If the candidate has a relation to the kid, then the lab should conduct the test very carefully, and give results double-checking to be on the safe side.
DNA mutations are alterations in the DNA sequence. They happen spontaneously throughout life and cause no interference in the DNA test result. But if a sperm contains a strand of DNA with mutation, the chances are that paternity test can give false negative result for the father and child. Radioactive rays. especially from chemotherapy, and other sources can induce mutations in DNA. In such cases, using the DNA from the mother can increase the paternity index and give correct test results.
Paternal DNA tests are important when the rights and duties of parents are an issue, and the child’s paternity is in doubt. Getting paternity tests from a proper and certifies lab is necessary to cancel out any chances of error. AABB DNA Testing offers a full range of services to validate family relations. AAB DNA Testing is certified and has court-admissible DNA tests.
