How do we do our maternity DNA testing?

From just £99, our Maternity DNA test will confirm whether a woman is the biological mother of a child.

For this extremely simple test, cheek swabs are rubbed quickly and painlessly on the inside of the cheek to collect DNA from each person taking part in the test (alleged mother and child).

Once the DNA samples arrive at the laboratory, our in-house geneticists analyse and compare the DNA samples to determine whether or not the individuals share enough DNA to verify a biological relationship.

A maternity DNA test can be useful in several situations, including:

  • When a child is conceived through in vitro fertilisation (IVF) and the parent(s) would like to confirm that the correct embryo was implanted in the woman’s uterus
  • When an adopted child and mother are reunited after years of separation and would like to confirm their biological relationship
  • When there are concerns that baby switching has mistakenly occurred within a hospital

Order your Maternity DNA test online now and choose to receive next-day* results (included in the cost of your test), or same-day* results for an additional £70.

Please note: this maternity DNA test is for peace of mind only. The results of the test can help give you the answers you need, but they cannot be used for legal matters. If you require a test for legal reasons, you will need to instruct us for a legal DNA test.

Call our Customer Services team on 0333 600 1300 to discuss your requirements and arrange your legal test.

Frequently Asked Questions

Maternity testing is a highly accurate method of identifying whether a woman is a child’s biological mother.

For a peace of mind maternity DNA test, cheek (buccal) swabs are used to collect cheek cell DNA from the alleged mother and the child.

Once these samples arrive at the laboratory, our in-house geneticists analyse and compare the DNA samples.

The test looks at up to 45 DNA markers (loci) to identify matching DNA markers in the alleged mother’s sample and the child’s sample.

If the woman is the biological mother of the child, both will share enough DNA markers to indicate a biological relationship. If the tested woman is not the biological mother, this will not be the case.

A maternity DNA test can be useful in several situations, including:

  • When a child is conceived through in vitro fertilisation (IVF) and the parent(s) would like to confirm that the correct embryo was implanted in the woman’s uterus
  • When an adopted child and mother are reunited after years of separation and would like to confirm their biological relationship
  • When there are concerns that baby switching has mistakenly occurred within a hospital

Our standard maternity test is already industry-leading, as it analyses 25 DNA markers (the industry standard only analyses 16-21 markers).

What makes AlphaBiolabs unique is that we can also analyse up to 45 DNA markers. This allows more genetic material to be analysed, which strengthens the result and provides additional reassurance.

This is ideal for customers who want the most powerful DNA test available.

Our maternity DNA test results are 100% accurate and reliable based on the samples we receive at our laboratory.

We are also accredited to the international quality standard ISO 17025 for our DNA testing.

Your DNA test kit will contain enough cheek swabs to collect DNA samples from the alleged mother and one child, along with full instructions on how to collect your cheek cell DNA samples and return them to our laboratory.

If you would like to test more than one child with the same test, you can add extra children to the package when ordering and more swabs will be provided in the DNA test kit (additional charges apply).

The test was quick and easy to use under difficult circumstances. Staff were helpful when I called to discuss the procedure. Very good service and quick turnaround.

I recently had IVF and give birth to my beautiful baby girl. I wasn’t worried at first but then I read an article in a magazine about how sometime samples are mixed up at the IVF clinic. I DIDN’T SLEEP! I chose this company as they had the best customer reviews and I wasn’t disappointed. They did my test SAME DAY and I am really happy with the service. Thank you so very much!!!!

I needed a maternity test as I had recently found out that I was adopted at birth! I found Alphabiolabs to be very quick and very professional. I would definitely use them again if I had to.
