    DNA paternity testing determines the biological father of a childDNA paternity test defines whether a tested man is the biological father of a tested child. If you need a paternity test for legal reasons or just peace of mind, we offer a wide variety of tests to fit your needs.

     

    If you need paternity test results that can be used as a legal document, then a Legal DNA Test must be performed. Listed below are some common legal reasons that this test is used for:

    • Child Support
    • Child Custody
    • Immigration
    • Birth Certificate
    • Tax Forms
    • Will/Estate
    • Court Order
    • Adoption
    • Other Legal Reasons

     

    Home Paternity Test
    If you do not need a DNA test for a legal matter — but just need a paternity test strictly for your own knowledge — you have the option of purchasing a Home DNA Test. The tested parties collect their own DNA samples and mail them to our laboratory though there are prerequisite documents to be returned with. When you call to place an order, we will send you a DNA kit within one business day and explain the step-by-step completion process. Before ordering a home test, please consider the legal test if you believe the results will ever be used beyond personal knowledge — this way, you won't have to purchase another test in the future.

    Prenatal Paternity Test
    If you are in need of a paternity test while pregnant we offer the safest, most accurate way to establish paternity before the baby is born.

  • Non-INVASIVE PRENATAL TEST (NIPT)

  • Unlike invasive prenatal testing (Chorionic villi sampling and amniocentesis), NIPT is not associated with a risk of miscarriage and cannot cause harm to the baby.It analyzes circulating cell free fetal DNA that is present in maternal blood. Performed using a maternal blood sample from 10th week of gestation. Of note is that an Ultrasound may be indicated to confirm accurate gestational age and ensure viability prior to blood sample collection.
    Indication:
    Peace of mind/General examination
    Advanced maternal age
    Increased risk/family history for fetal chromosomal abonormalities
    Single or Multiple pregnancies(depending on type of kits)

  • We offer several Veterinary quality canine DNA tests for use by breeders, veterinarians, and registries worldwide. All canine samples can be obtained easily using buccal (cheek) swabs included with your DNA sample collection kit. Our comprehensive menu of DNA testing for dogs include:

    Dog DNA Breed Test
    Parentage Testing
    Inherited Traits Testing
    Inherited Disease Testing
    DNA Profiling

  • Per adventure it happens that you are not the father/mother to the child after a DNA testing, Please be a father/mother to that child

Prenatal Paternity Test


We offer a unique paternity test before the child is born - which can be performed as early as the 9th week of pregnancy. This test is non-invasive, with results within 5 days, and is now the preferred option vs. traditional Amniocentesis or Chorionic villus sampling.

DNA Maternity Test
A DNA maternity test determines whether a tested woman is the biological mother of a tested child.

DNA Grandparentage Test
A DNA grandparentage test, performed in the absence of an alleged father, determines the relationship between a child and the parents of the alleged father.

Genetic Reconstruction
A genetic reconstruction is performed to determine the biological relationship of a child to the alleged father’s close relatives.

DNA Siblingship Test
A siblingship test determines whether two children share one or both parents.

Twin Zygosity Test
A twin zygosity test determines whether twins are fraternal or identical.

Y-STR Paternal Lineage
A Y-STR paternal lineage test determines whether two or more males are related through a paternal line.

mtDNA Maternal Lineage
A mitochondrial DNA maternal linage test determines whether two or more individuals are related through a maternal line.

Immigration DNA Testing


We provides AABB-accredited DNA testing for immigration purposes. DDC performs testing for clients in over 168 countries worldwide, following the specific requirements set by the government agencies in each country.

AABB Immigration DNA Testing

DNA testing is an important step to complete the immigration process for family members. It is required to prove a biological relationship between a petitioner and a beneficiary, using an AABB accredited immigration DNA testing lab, when evidence (e.g, birth certificate) is deemed insufficient or inconclusive by the USCIS or U.S. embassy. Examples of DNA tests used for immigration purposes include paternity tests, maternity tests, siblings tests, and grandparentage tests, all of which must utilize AABB accredited testing facilities

 

DNA Profiling
A DNA profile is an individual’s genetic fingerprint, used for personal security such as in the case of identifying a missing child or future inheritance claims.

DNA Banking
An individual’s DNA can be stored in a secure environment so that it is available for a future DNA test if needed.

Cell Line Authentication
DDC offers the most comprehensive STR DNA testing available by examining of a panel of 17 highly polymorphic genetic markers plus amelogenin to determine gender, to generate an STR DNA profile that uniquely identifies a human cell.

FORENSIC DNA TESTING

Our forensic laboratory offers a variety of DNA testing systems to meet the needs of our clients. Our scientists utilize state-of-the-art equipment to provide evidence screening, serology testing, and DNA analysis. Our forensic services include:

STR Testing
Y-STR Testing
Forensic Paternity
Mini-STR Testing
