Understanding DNA Test Results
How does a paternity test work?
A paternity test identifies the genetic relationship between a man and a child. DNA Worldwide conduct paternity tests by using a mouth swab to quickly and painlessly collect a DNA sample. These samples of DNA are then examined, and will determine if the alleged father and child have enough matching DNA to have a biological relationship. The testing procedure compares DNA markers and this comparison can determine how closely related they are.

We test 21-68 different DNA markers, most standard paternity tests only examine 16 different markers, the more markers tested, the more accurate the result.
