The paternal relative (Y-STR) comparison test, also known as a paternal lineage test, can confirm a relationship to a distant relative. This DNA test is often used to provide additional evidence in difficult paternity situations in which the alleged father is not available for testing—indirectly, it can tell you whether or not a child is related to the alleged father’s brother(s) and other male relatives who share a common ‘paternal’ line.
The testing process is simple—the DNA samples are taken using a painless buccal (cheek) swab, and testing is completed in 5 business days.
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.)
