Why take a DNA maternity test?
A DNA maternity test is suitable if you want to demonstrate the existence of a biological relationship between an alleged mother and a child. The DNA maternity test is similar in principle to a DNA paternity test.
If a child is adopted, he or she may grow up wanting to find their biological parents. It may be that a mother who conceived a child through in vitro fertilization would like to confirm that the correct embryo was implanted into her uterus. This test is ideal for such situations if someone wants to conclusively prove whether an alleged mother is the true biological mother.
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. Did you know that we were the first UK laboratory to offer accredited 25 marker maternity testing? And for your added peace of mind we retest all our exclusion results.
We send your DNA maternity test kit direct to an address of your choice using discreet packaging.
Our maternity 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.
Our maternity tests look at up to 35 DNA markers and examine the child’s DNA and identify which half is inherited from the mother and which half is from the father.
