Fast, Powerful and Proven
The DNA Grandparentage Test determines the likelihood that an alleged grandparent is the true biological grandparent of a child. The full genetic report is included with every test.
Usage: The DNA Grandparentage Test is used in situations where the alleged parent(s) are not available for testing. Either the grandmother, or the grandfather, or both can take the DNA grandparentage test to investigate the likelihood that they are the true biological grandparents of a grandchild. There is no age limit for DNA testing so the test can be performed on infants as well as adult grandchildren.
- All DNA Grandparentage tests are conducted using a premium 16 to 27 genetic marker system
- State-of-the-Art Accredited testing laboratory utilizing advanced robotics and analyzers
- Useful for situations where no other relationship type can be taken
- Check the progress of your DNA Grandparentage test online
- Results in 3 to 5 business days as soon as the samples are received
- Choose to receive your DNA Grandparentage test results report rapidly by email and/or mail
- Easy and painless sample collection using buccal (mouth) swabs
Turnaround Time: DNA Grandparentage Test is completed 3 to 5 business days after the samples arrive at the laboratory. Results are released immediately once the testing is completed.
Age: There are no age limitations for taking the DNA Grandparentage Test. The test can be performed quickly and easily at any age, including newborns.
Description: During a DNA Grandparentage Test, a buccal swab (mouth swab) specimen is collected from the grandparent(s) and the grandchild. The sample which is collected contains cells, and most of the cells in our body contain a full set of genetic information in the form of DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid). A person's DNA represents a "genetic blueprint" and like a fingerprint, is unique to each individual. At the laboratory, the DNA is extracted from the cell and specific regions of the DNA are amplified by a process known as PCR (polymerase chain reaction) for careful examination. The DNA pattern of the grandparent is compared to that of the grandchild. A statistical analysis is performed based on the match type typically expected for true grandparent/grandchild pairs, and a "grandparentage index" is obtained.
True biologically related grandparent/grandchild pairs are typically expected to have a grandparentage index value that is greater than 1.0 in their DNA Grandparentage Test Report. Individuals who are not grandparent/grandchild are expected to have a grandparentage index value that is less than 1.0.
The greater the grandparentage index value over 1.0, the higher the likelihood that the two individuals are biologically related as grandparent/grandchild. Likewise, the lower the grandparentage index value is below 1.0, the lesser the likelihood that the two individuals are biologically related as grandparent/grandchild.
Can the kit be shipped to more than one address if the parties live in different cities? If the individuals to be tested live in different cities, or even different countries, we can split the kit and send each component to a different address. Since the kits are individually barcoded, the samples will still be tested together even if the are sent back separately. To order a split kit, please write the following into the comments box of the online order form: "Please split kit". Please also indicate the name, relationship and address to send each component. For example, please state: "send the alleged Grandmother's portion of the kit to... (specify one of the alleged Grandmother's name and address)" and "send the Grandchild's portion of the kit to... (specify the Grandchild's name and address)".
100% Private and Confidential: The DNA Grandparentage test is 100% private and confidential. The testing kit arrives in a plain, unmarked package. The samples are collected discreetly in the privacy of your own home and send back to the laboratory for testing. Your results arrive directly to you by mail or email to maintain 100% privacy.
How long does the DNA Grandparentage Test take? Results are available in 3 to 5 business days once our laboratory receives the samples from all parties involved in the test.
How will I receive my DNA Grandparentage test results? You can choose to receive your DNA Grandparentage test results by email, mail or both. If you choose the email option, you will receive your test results by email instantly once the test is completed.
How do I proceed with DNA Grandparentage testing? To proceed with DNA Grandparentage testing, select the test option from the order list above. A private kit will be sent to you immediately for sample collection.
