An “avuncular” test determines if a person is biologically related to a sibling of the father in question. This test is a good option when the father is not available for testing, and the only relative available is a single sibling (brother or sister) of the father.
Siblings share approximately 50% of their DNA, therefore an uncle or aunt shares about 25% of their DNA with a nephew/niece. DDC has the most extensive array of genetic markers available to resolve biological relationship like aunt – uncle testing, which is often another way to determine paternity. Other labs do not have this extensive set of markers.
This test will mark 20 loci markers instead of the usual standard 15 or 16 that other DNA companies may provide and can be upgraded to our 25 loci marker test for an additional $25.
This is a more accurate and conclusive test.
. If you need more than three people to test, please order an Add-on test for $100 US ($125.00 CN) for each additional person, Eg: another child, or alleged father, etc.
Please inquire for other types of tests, or multiple complicated situations. (Ancestry, cousins, half brothers or sisters, grand parents, multiple fathers, etc.)
