Facts About Parental Testing

Parental testing can be performed easily through established companies in the United States with AABB accreditation. The testing is usually performed by collecting Buccal cells found on the inside of a person's cheek using a Buccal swab or cheek swab. These swabs have wooden or plastic stick handles with a cotton on synthetic tip. The collector rubs the inside of a person's cheek in order to collect as many Buccal cells as possible. The Buccal cells are then sent to a laboratory for testing. For paternity testing, samples from the alleged father and child would be needed. For maternity testing, samples from the alleged mother and child would be needed.

Paternity Testing Facts - Did you know?

In 2010, 24.87% of men tested for paternity were proved not to be the father, according to the AABB 2010 annual report. Paternity testing usually requires a cheek swab, which is non-invasive. If its parents are unmarried, a child may not have a legal father until paternity is established. Hair, toothbrushes and fingernail clippings can all be used for a paternity test. Grandparents, aunts and uncles can still be tested even though a parent may be unavailable.
