Uncle DNA testing
This type of DNA testing is also known as avuncular testing. It is usually needed when the alleged mother or father is deceased or unwilling to participate in a test and the alleged uncle of the child would like to establish their biological relationship for legal purposes.
Our award-winning laboratory has been performing uncle DNA tests since 2004. The process involves comparing an individual’s DNA profile with that of an alleged uncle. An individual inherits half of their DNA from each biological parent, therefore our comparison can reveal whether the child has inherited DNA from the alleged uncle who is being tested.
To provide you with the most accurate result, we ask that the alleged uncle who has a claimed biological link to the child should be tested along with the child and their mother (or father, if the uncle is related to the child through the mother).
Please note that the alleged uncle must be a full sibling of the alleged mother or alleged father, and not a half-sibling.
How we do our DNA testing
We ensure the reliability and accuracy of our genetic testing by using the most up-to-date DNA testing technology. 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 in our uncle tests.
We send your uncle DNA test kit direct to an address of your choice using discreet packaging.
Our test kit includes mouth swabs that are simply rubbed gently and painlessly on the inside of the cheek. There is no need for needles.

Why is our uncle testing different?
A guaranteed result or your money back. We understand 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 uncle testing can be up to 40% inconclusive (four people out of 10 will not get a result after paying for the test). At AlphaBiolabs, we have managed to reduce our 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 us.
For this reason, 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, guaranteed. 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 uncle test kit from AlphaBiolabs.
