DNA Tests Available > Auntie DNA Test
Auntie DNA testing is used as an indirect way of establishing the identity of biological parents. The test will establish whether a female is the Auntie of a potential niece or nephew. The Auntie DNA test should only be used when the parents of the potential niece or nephew are not available for testing themselves.
The Auntie DNA Test can provide up to a 99.99% positive proof of the relationship or it will exclude the relationship with 100% proof. The DNA Clinics DNA test is the most detailed and accurate Auntie test available.
The Auntie DNA test is able to establish the following:
Is he my nephew? Is she my niece?
Is he my brother’s son? Is she my brother’s daughter?
Is she my dad’s sister? Is she my mum’s sister?
Auntie DNA tests can be performed between a potential Auntie and Nephew, and a potential Auntie and Niece – or both.
There are typically two types of Auntie DNA Test, depending on the situation known:
At DNA Clinics, a Clinical Advisor will work with you to establish exactly what the situation is and what the known facts are, thus determining the correct form of test for your family.
If a KNOWN parent is available for testing, then they will be included in the test for FREE as this may increase the overall accuracy of the auntie test.
The test analyses up to 34 genetic locations on the DNA strand to create a DNA profile for each test participant. The DNA profiles of the test participants are then compared.
The test is based on the fact that biologically related individuals should have more DNA in common than unrelated individuals. On average the DNA of related individuals will match at more DNA locations than unrelated people.
Auntie DNA tests are usually a way of testing the identity of a biological parent, without directly including that alleged parent in the test.
Although Aunty DNA tests can be very accurate and useful DNA tests, they cannot replace the tests that directly test the DNA of a biological parent. For example, if an alleged father is available for testing, then a Paternity DNA test should be used rather than an Aunty test with the sister of the alleged father.
Other forms of DNA test that should be considered included Sibling DNA tests, Y Chromosome analysis, forensic DNA testing and Maternity DNA testing.
These DNA tests provide accurate results, but with any test removed for the direct relationship testing of maternity and paternity testing, there is small a chance that the test will yield an INCONCLUSIVE result. In the case of the Uncle test, the risk of an inconclusive result is 1% (1 in 100).
