DNA testing and paternity test services

DNA paternity testing services are available from a number of DNA testing laboratories in the UK. Normally, a mouth swab is sufficient for the DNA test.


The cells in our body all contain a sample of our DNA. DNA determines inheritance of eye colour, hair colour, stature, bone density and many other human and animal traits.One of the most common uses of DNA testing is to determine whether two individuals are blood relatives (DNA paternity testing). However, DNA tests are being used more and more in understanding how diseases and conditions are passed from one generation to the next.
