DNA Paternity Test FAQs
DNA test checks specific genes or 'markers' on the DNA to determine if people are related to each other. It is a susceptible DNA testing procedure in forensic medicine. The DNA is extracted from the sample (IT can be blood/biological fluid), and its genetic code is copied at the marker points.
This test is based on obtaining a blood sample or a cheek swab. Either of these samples is taken from the suspected son and the father and then sent to a lab. The lab works on finding identical genetic sequences in the DNA of both individuals. If a pattern is found, then the relationship is established. The test takes up to 5 days to provide results.
The test has high accuracy, and identification is easily possible if the sample is collected sufficient and timely.
