Identigene supplies three sets of swabs in each kit. It is designed for testing mother, alleged father and child. The mother is not required but will strengthen test results.

Please visit our website at www.dnatesting.com or you can contact us at 888-404-GENE.

answer 1
The results of this test are not court permissible.

You may upgrade to a "LEGAL PATERNITY TEST" along with this kit. The difference being that there must be a chain of custody (disinterested third party) taking and controlling the samples through the process. That would then be court admissible.

Court admissible results will require witnessed collection.

The IDENTIGENE DNA Paternity test can be upgraded to a court admissible test for $200.

You can call IDENTIGENE and a test consultant will assist you in setting up your collection appointments.

The Identigene test only accepts cheek cells collected with the enclosed buccal swabs. There are other ways of collecting DNA but not with this test.

answer 2
It must be the inner cheek area due to the cells we hold in out cheeks.

Other ares will not provide enough DNA as needed.

The test kit, even the legal test kit, said the Mother's DNA is optional. It will still work with only Father and child DNA.

Hi Bonnie,

Yes you can test with the father and child, however, we strongly recommend that the mother participate in the test. This is because you have a greater likelihood of receiving a conclusive test result. If you have any more questions please feel free to contact us.

answer 1
No, the Identigene DNA Paternity Test is Not a Saliva test, only Cheek Cells can be used for Testing Purposes. The person being tested must wait at least one hour after eating or drinking before collecting the Cheek Cell Sample, this includes infants who are breastfeeding.

answer 2
Hi MCK,

Thank you for your question. Some individuals have DNA in their saliva, but some don't, therefore it is not reliable for testing. DNA is always found in cheek cells and that's why we recommend rubbing the swabs against the inside of the cheek for at least 30 seconds. This way we are sure we have enough DNA to continue with testing and yield a result.

That might only be something they do in movies. I'd call a lab about that.

answer 1
You would need to test the father to see if he was the father of each child. (A paternity test). You can purchase one kit and contact our client support and arrange for an extra set of swabs for the second sister. 888-404-4363 A sibling test would confirm if the sisters were biologically related to each other. This is different than a paternity test. Please call our client support line with any questions. We are here to help. 888-404-4363

The type of test you are referring to is not a paternity test. You want a Sibling Test. Identigene offers this test, but it is sold directly from the company. Their customer service is great. Just call them at 1-888-404-GENE.

Yes of course. Any DNA paternity test would help you.. Identigene is not one of the best DNA paternity tests. It is more expensive and slow results. I used the one from testcountry com.

Please contact Identigene customer service at 888-404-GENE to request additional swabs. If you are not swabbing the mother, you can use the third set of swabs in the kit. There is no need to buy an additional kit.

I think you just pay an additional fee to the lab not a whole new kit. You can contact the company directly to ask them. They are very friendly and prompt to respond

For a personal DNA paternity test, you do not need to send a copy of the child's birth certificate.

Do be sure that you sign the specimen envelopes indicating that you are the child's legal guardian.

Just call Identigene at 1-888-404-GENE. They offer a service called Family Reconstruction. If a father is not available, other relatives can be tested (such as a father's sister) to determine relationship. An aunt/uncle test is called an "Avuncular Test".

answer 2
Yes. A biological sister of the father can be swabbed. This is called a relationship test (aunt/uncle). Please contact our customer service department to arrange for this type of testing. This is not considered a paternity test. Our client support number is 888-404-4363.
