Understanding Your Results

The Results in Simple Terms

The DNA test results will either include or exclude a given person from being biologically related to another person. In paternity testing, the tested putative father is excluded as being the biological father when he shares an insufficient number of genetic markers with the child; in this case, the probability of paternity reads 0% in your result. When the alleged father and child share a sufficient number of genetic markers, he is “included” as the biological father; the probability of paternity, in this case, reads 99.99%. Take a look at sample DNA paternity test results.

Your DNA Test Results

During the DNA analysis at our accredited laboratories, the loci required will be extracted, amplified, and examined using a process of analysis known as PCR or polymerase chain reaction. This biochemical technology in molecular biology enables us to work with very small DNA samples and provide highly accurate results.

On the actual DNA test report sent to our clients, there will be two columns. On the left-hand portion of the report will be the actual loci tested – all 20 of them. For each Loci identified there are two numbers presented. For example, if the child’s numbers for a particular locus are 12 and 18, the number 12 size loci will be inherited from one side (maternal or paternal) and the other number 18 from the other (paternal or maternal). EasyDNA will be able to determine which locus was inherited from which parent by comparing the profiles of two or more people. Thus, if the alleged father has numbers 18 and 2 for the same locus, we can conclude that the child inherited the number 18 locus from the father and the 2 from the mother.

Whilst we do not need to have the mother’s sample to accurately conclude a paternity test, we always recommend testing the mother’s sample because this will help us have a more thorough analysis. We can extract the mother’s DNA profile and include it in the comparison of genetic markers, helping us to provide a more accurate result. In some exceptional cases of genetic mutations, the mother’s sample may become indispensable to the analysis. Contact us for more information.
