DNA aunt testing
DNA aunt testing (also known as an avuncular test) is often needed when the alleged father or mother is deceased or unwilling to participate in the testing process and the alleged aunt of the child would like to establish their biological relationship to the child. AlphaBiolabs has been performing DNA aunt tests for 15 years.
Our DNA test works by comparing an individual’s DNA profile with that of an alleged aunt. Because an individual inherits half of his or her DNA from each biological parent, such a comparison reveals whether the child has inherited DNA from the alleged aunt who is being tested. Due to the nature of the DNA aunt test, we recommend that the alleged aunt who has a claimed biological link to the child should be tested along with the child and their mother (or father, if the aunt is related to the child through the mother) to provide you with the most accurate result. It is recommended that a parent be included but it is not essential to perform the aunt DNA test.
Please note that the alleged aunt must be a full sibling of the alleged mother or alleged father, and not a half-sibling.
How we do our DNA testing
We utilise the most up-to-date DNA testing technology to ensure the reliability and accuracy of our genetic testing. We were the first UK laboratory to offer accredited 25 marker DNA testing and retest all our exclusion results. We can also look at up to 42 DNA markers (loci) in our aunt tests. We send your DNA test kit direct to an address of your choice using discreet packaging. Our test kit includes mouth swabs to be rubbed gently and painlessly on the inside of the cheek, so it is not a problem if anyone involved is scared of needles.
Choose to receive fast, accurate and confidential aunt DNA results either the same working day for £269 or the next day for just £199.

Why is our aunt testing different?
A guaranteed result or your money back. At AlphaBiolabs we know that you want a DNA test to get an answer. However, we need to tell you that not all tests are conclusive and you may not get a definitive answer to your question. It is the best kept secret within the industry that aunt testing can be up to 40% inconclusive (four people out of 10 will not get a result after paying for the test). Our award-winning DNA laboratory has managed to reduce its inconclusive rate to 28%, so about one in four people will not get a decisive answer.
This is obviously an improvement but is still not acceptable to AlphaBiolabs. Consequently, we have introduced our guaranteed result or money back promise. Every customer ordering this test and not getting a result, will have the price of their test refunded. That’s a guarantee. Please note, all relationship DNA tests bought via third party retailers are not included in this guarantee.
Now you can find the answers you need with the UK’s most popular home DNA aunt test kit from AlphaBiolabs.
