Private Paternity Testing

Private DNA tests are debatably court admissible. DNA samples are self collected at home. You save money because a certified DNA collector is not collecting your DNA samples. This test is our low cost option. For information on our DNA test cost please contact us at 623-594-1605.

Samples from only one individual should be placed in each envelope. Each envelope should have a different persons swabs in it.

Paperwork

Using a DNA submission form you will list the following information:

You are not required to list any other identification information

Informed Consent

You will read the terms of service. If you have any questions about these terms you should contact an iTest DNA scientist at 623-594-1605. When you are certain you understand the terms you will then sign the informed consent.

Sample Envelopes

DNA samples will be placed in envelopes, before DNA collection be sure to label a single envelope for each person being tested with their name. For example, if you are collecting a mother, child and alleged father. Label three different envelopes with a different person's name on each envelope.

Procedure

While wearing gloves you will remove one sterile swab from its wrapper. The DNA collector will then rub the swab in the mouth of the donor for 30 or more seconds. If you are collecting your own DNA sample, you will rub the swab inside your own mouth. The DNA collector is removing skin from the inside of the donor's mouth. Skin contains DNA. Your skin naturally sheds and regrows very quickly. The skin is sticking to the cotton on the swab. This is not a saliva test. After completing the DNA sample collection place the DNA swab into the previously labeled envelope. Repeat this process until four swabs have been collected from each person.

Do Not Mix Samples

DSamples from only one individual should be placed in each envelope. Each envelope should have a different persons swabs in it.
