Maternity DNA Test
Endeavor DNA offers confidential, accurate, fast, and affordable maternity testing services.
Maternity DNA tests determine the likelihood that a female is the biological mother of a child. In a standard DNA maternity test, the tested parties include a child, the alleged mother, and the father. The father’s participation in the maternity test helps to exclude half of the child’s DNA, leaving the other half for comparison with the alleged mother’s DNA. Although including the father is always recommended, we can perform a maternity test without father’s participation.
Endeavor DNA offers a 2 business day turnaround on maternity tests utilizing either buccal swabs or specimen collection cards (WhatmanTM FTA® or WhatmanTM 903) with rush testing options available. Endeavor DNA can also test a multitude of other sample types, but longer turnaround times may apply.
All Endeavor DNA maternity tests utilize stringent, validated testing procedures and include up to 22 STR loci plus the gender identification marker amelogenin in order to achieve 100% accurate results.
