Paternity Tests

Every person has two copies of each gene. One copy comes from the mother and the other copy comes from the father. When the DNA paternity test is performed, our laboratory examines the DNA of the child to determine whether the father's contribution matches that of the alleged father. If the alleged father is the true biological father of the child, half of the child's genetics will match that of the alleged father's. If the profile does not match, the tested man will be excluded as being the biological father of the child. We use a non-invasive, pain-free DNA collection method for paternity testing. Using the latest technology, a buccal cell sample taken from the inside of the mouth is now the most recommended method for sample collection.


We now offer a patermity test that utilizes non-invasive prenatal diagnosis by analyzing fetal DNA that is circulating in the mother’s blood.   In our clinic, we draw a blood sample from the mother-to-be and isolate the baby’s DNA.  We then compare baby’s DNA to the DNA taken (by buccal swab) from the potential father.  This test can be performed as early as 8 weeks into the pregnancy.  For more information about this amazing, game-changing technology, please call San Diego Lab Testing at 858-485-0010.

Paternity Test - DNA - Non Court

Our Price: $240.00


Our non-legal DNA paternity testing determines the biological father of a child. This DNA Paternity test is NOT valid in court but is extremely accurate. A simple swab is rubbed on the child's and potential father's gums and sent to our lab for testing.  Since this is a non-legal test, other samples may be used for the potential father's DNA besides the swab.  Results are typically available in 3 days.



Paternity Test - DNA - Court

Our Price: $280.00


This DNA paternity test determines the biological father of a child. We all inherit our DNA from our biological parents, half from our mother, and half from our father. A DNA paternity test compares a child's DNA pattern with that of the potential father to determine if there is a match. A simple swab is rubbed on the child's and potential father's gums and sent to our lab for testing.  It is the most definitive proof of a biological relationship between child and father. This DNA Paternity test is valid in court.  To be valid in court we must follow strict chain-of-custody requirements including photographing the child, mother and potential father.
