What is Paternity Testing?

Paternity testing provides scientific evidence of whether a man can be a child's biological father. Paternity is determined by comparing the child's DNA with the DNA profile of the alleged father.

At-Home Tests (Non-Legal)

When should I purchase a non-legal at-home test?

You want to determine the paternity or maternity of a child but you are not involved in a court matter, you should purchase a non-legal at-home test. If there is any chance the results might be needed for legal purposes, a legal test should be performed. LabCorp uses the same testing technology for both legal and non-legal testing. Non-legal or at-home tests allow for sample collection at your home and do not follow the legal chain-of-custody protocols needed for a legal test. Our highly accurate tests exclude, on average, 99.99% of non-fathers.

What kind of sample is tested with at-home test?

A DNA collection kit will be delivered to you. The kit will contain 4 cotton swabs for each person that will be providing their sample for testing. DNA samples can be collected at home by rubbing the cotton swab on the inside of the cheek.
