Doubt that you are the father? Do you need to get absolute answers today? International Biosciences is a leading online, based DNA testing company offering paternity testing services with only the samples of alleged father and child, with the option of testing the mother if her sample is available. Our home paternity testing is the most accurate and scientific means you have to obtain the answers you need in the comfort of your own home.
We do not offer express testing if you choose to send a discreet sample. We can offer express testing only if you use mouth swabs.
Including The Mother
Home paternity testing with the mother’s sample provides results that are in excess of 99.99% accurate in cases where the tested, alleged father is the biological father. On the other hand, if the mother’s sample is not included, the results will show a probability of paternity in excess of 99.9%.
Why Choose Us?
• Samples analysed in a state-of-the-art ISO 17025 accredited laboratory
• Results of a paternity test are in excess of 99.9% accurate leaving no doubt
• Our test can be carried out even without the mother’s sample
• Our result is based on the analysis of 21 genetic markers
• Quick results which are made available to you within 4 days from receipt of samples
Once we extract a 21 genetic marker profile from the samples of the tested individuals, we proceed to compare the profiles. If we see that all genetic markers on the profile of the alleged father and the child are identical and match at every point, we can confirm that the tested father is the biological father of the child. If genetic markers do not match, then the tested father is not the biological father of the child.
Easy, straightforward, discreet and quick – sample collection with our home paternity testing kit is very simple. We send out a kit (in discreet packaging) following receipt of payment and inside your kit you will have all you need to collect the DNA samples:
• 4 sterile mouth swabs per test participant
• Consent forms
• Pre-addressed return envelope

Note: We can only guarantee standard result turnaround time when testing takes place solely using oral swab samples. Using a discreet sample for your test may lead to an increase in turnaround time.

Can I have my samples collected by a third party?
If you would rather not collect your own mouth swab samples, International Biosciences offers you the option of having DNA samples collected in one of our partner clinics. Another option is we can send a mobile sampler directly to your home, office or work place. For an additional fee, we can organise the sample collection for you. IBDNA can organise separate home visits and multiple clinic appointments anywhere in the USA. If you choose to have your samples collected in a clinic, we will find a clinic which is conveniently located as close to you as possible. For more information, we suggest reading our page about DNA collection services.
Do I need to include the mother?
DNA paternity testing will provide in excess of 99.999% probability of paternity in an inclusion result (meaning the tested, alleged father is the biological father) when the mother’s sample is not included in the test. We, at International Biosciences, carry out most of our paternity testing without the mother’s sample but we always recommend including the mother’s sample when she is available for the test. This is because in rare cases, paternity testing without the mother’s sample can lead to an inconclusive result which can only be concluded by having the mother’s sample. There is no extra charge for including the mother’s sample.
What about pricing and turnaround time?
Our home paternity test for testing alleged father starts from just $129 – this is an all-inclusive price and there are no hidden fees. The only fee you need to cover is the cost for posting your samples back to us. Results are ready in 3 to 5 working days from when we get your samples.
