What is it?
Paternity and maternity tests prove biological parenthood.
When should I use it?
A paternity or maternity test can be used to establish the parenthood of an individual for a court case such as child support or child custody. The test can also be used to support placing a parent’s name on a birth certificate.
LabCorp places the highest emphasis on following legal chain of custody with your sample, so your sample will be valid evidence in a legal setting. We employ the latest technology to provide the most accurate results for you. Our highly accurate tests exclude, on average, 99.99% of non-fathers. We provide safe, secure, and efficient transportation of your samples.
What kind of sample is tested?
The most common sample type is a buccal swab. This sample is collected using a cotton swab that is gently rubbed on the inside of your cheek. Blood samples are also acceptable.
