What is a Maternity DNA Test?

This test is used to establish the biological mother of an individual.

• ISO 17025 Accredited/ 100% Accurate and Fast Results
• Legal Maternity test and Peace of Mind options available

How the Maternity DNA test works:

A person possesses two (of many possible) alleles at each location. The alleles are identified by a number. These are inherited from the parents at conception. One comes from the mother and one from the father.

Therefore, when the DNA profiles of biological parents are laid out together, one of the child’s alleles (numbers) will match up with a number from the mothers sample and the other should match up with an allele from the father’s sample.

If these alleles match at all locations analysed, a person is included as the biological mother of the child because it proves they have passed these genetic markers to the child at conception.

Inconsistencies (locations where there is NO match) will exclude a person as a biological mother. This is based on the fact that it is only possible to pass on to your offspring, the alleles which you possess in your own DNA profile.

To test who the mother of a child is w hen the mother is not available, Sibling Testing options are available.
