Frequently Asked Questions
How are samples collected?
Cheek swab samples are most often collected from the test participants by gently rubbing a cotton swab on the inside of the mouth. Samples can also be obtained with as little as 5 to 10 drops of blood from a finger prick.
Where are samples collected?
Sample collections are usually done in our office in Wichita. If needed we can usually arrange for a mobile collection but there is an additional charge for mobile collections.
Who needs to be tested?
In most paternity cases, a sample is collected from the mother, child, and alleged father. Single parent-child identifications are also performed. In cases where the mother is not tested, the child's custodian must authorize testing if the alleged father does not have custody of the tested child. A father's name on a Birth Certificate or a child's last name does not automatically give custody to the father.
For other types of DNA testing such as grandparentage testing, Sibling testing, genetic family reconstructions please call our office at 316-832-0985 or email us at email@example.com.
DNA Parentage Testing may be performed at any age. The accuracy of the test is not affected by the age of the child or the fetus tested.
What do clients need to bring with them?
Strict Chain-of-custody procedures will be followed and polaroid photographs will be taken of all persons at the time of sample collection.
