At Home Parentage Test
FAST | ACCURATE | DISCRETE
“Thank you so much for not just the fast result but all your care and help before and during the process. I so appreciate this!” Denise, NSW
An at home paternity test tells you if a man is the true biological father of a child. Likewise, a maternity test tells you if a woman is the true biological mother of a child. Because children inherit half their DNA from their dad and the other half from their mum, comparing a child’s DNA profile with that of the questioned father or mother shows how likely it is that the child inherited their DNA from them. At Identilab, we look at 23 DNA markers (as well as 2 markers that tell us the sex of the person), meaning you are getting the best results available. You don’t need a referral from your doctor to undertake a paternity or maternity test.
There are three easy steps to finding out if you are the father or mother of a child at Identilab:
Place your order online or by contacting us by phone, email or through our contact form. We’ll send your collection kits to your home that day if ordered by 1 pm on a weekday. Kits are sent in discreet packaging via Australia Post for free, or there is an Express Post option for an additional fee.
Your collection kit includes full instructions on how to take your samples at home – it’s just a quick and easy swab from inside the mouth. Package the samples in the return pre-paid envelope and drop them back in the post.
Once we have all the samples at the lab, we’ll perform our testing as quickly as possible. You’ll receive your results via email within 5 business days of us receiving your samples (providing the samples are of good quality and additional testing is not required).
The results of an at home paternity or maternity test cannot be used for legal purposes, because the identities of the people taking part in the DNA tests have not been confirmed by an independent person. The results provided from the test are therefore for your peace of mind and personal knowledge only.
Do you need your results for legal purposes, such as for Family Court, changing a birth certificate, or for child support claims? If yes, you will need our legally admissible test. Not sure which test you need? Give us a call on 1300 114 294 to discuss your needs and options.
This at home paternity test kit includes testing for the known parent, the alleged parent, and one child (additional children can be tested for $165 each). We highly recommend including samples from both parents to ensure you are getting the most reliable results.
