Paternity testing in Cardiff – how does it work?  

You can easily order a paternity test from our website, or call our Customer Services team to discuss your case in more detail. The test kit can be posted out to your home address or any address of your choice and will arrive in discreet packaging to minimise detection. Or, our Walk-in Centre provides paternity testing in Cardiff city centre – you can make an appointment for one of our trained sample collectors to carry out the test for you, for an extra £60.

The paternity test works by analysing specific DNA markers within mouth swab samples provided by the alleged father and the child. The results will show which half of the child’s DNA is inherited from the father and which half comes from the mother, if she is participating in the test.

Our paternity tests are so accurate, we don’t require a sample from the child’s mother to determine whether or not an alleged father is indeed a biological relation of the child. We can prove with 99.9% probability whether the tested father is in fact related to the child. 

To do this, where the child is younger than 16 years old, the father must have Parental Consent so that we can carryout the tests lawfully.

Our trained scientists will analyse your samples to determine your results. We will send your results to you in a password-protected email, and provide you with the clarity you’ve been looking for, for you and your family.
