Our peace of mind home DNA tests can be bought online and posted direct to any convenient address. The testing kits can also be bought at High Street stores near you. You can get your results the next day. Same day results are also available.

We offer paternity and maternity testing for just £99 with next day results as standard. Sibling, twin, grandparent, aunt and uncle, Y chromosome and single profile tests are also available. The testing kits include full instructions and simply involve rubbing a mouth swab on your inside cheek to collect buccal cells.

We offer three types of home DNA testing

As well as the standard home DNA tests, we also offer a prenatal DNA test and toothbrush testing.

Prenatal paternity tests can be used to non-invasively determine paternity of a baby before birth. This innovative test can be performed as early as 6 weeks after conception. The test is completely safe to the mother and unborn child. The mother needs to supply a blood sample and the alleged father uses a mouth swab to collect his DNA. The testing kit can be sent to an address of your choice, but you will need to contact a medical professional to have the blood sample taken. Priced at £875, results take up to 7 days but can be fast-tracked with our express 4-day service for an extra £200.  

Toothbrushes have been proven to be a good source of DNA and offer an alternative method of testing. This home DNA test doesn’t even require a testing kit to be mailed out, simply send in a used toothbrush in a clean envelope. An advantage is that samples can be collected in an unobtrusive manner. For example, using a mouth swab on older children could lead to awkward questions in the case of paternity disputes.

All DNA relationship testing is performed at our in-house laboratory in Warrington where we analyse up to 35 DNA markers.
