Waiting for the Results of DNA Paternity Testing

January 06, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 161

Generally DNA paternity testing is done to identify the father of a child. In most cases the mother of the child is evident but the paternal blood line needs to be confirmed through the test. These tests have a lot of emotional connotations for the man who is awaiting the answer so it is very good to know that technology has made amazing advances allowing the results to be rendered in a relatively short time.

In order to perform the DNA paternity testing to prove the identity of the father of a child a sample will be required from both the child and the man. These samples are generally obtained by swabbing the inside of the mouths of these individuals with cotton swabs. The swabs are then marked as to which person they were obtained from and then they are sent to the lab to be processed. It is possible that when this test is performed a sample will also be requested from the mother of the child simply to make a positive identification. This helps to prove that the swabs were not mixed up or in any way tampered with after they were taken from the subjects.

Another form of DNA paternity testing can be performed while the mother is still carrying the child. This test is done by drawing blood from the unborn child through the placenta. Most of the time the doctor will not want to do this test because it can present some possibly dangerous side effects for the baby.

When the swab testing is done and sent to a lab it usually takes about three days to get the results of the test. Some labs will call the tested person or allow then to call the lab in order to obtain the results. Some labs will require that the results be delivered through the mail, or picked up from their offices.

When blood is drawn from an expectant mother the test takes longer to reveal the results. It will take approximately five days before the DNA paternity testing done with this method shows the results.

Since technology has made so many advancements in the testing procedures and the equipement used to perform them, the price of having DNA paternity testing done has become very reasonable. You can even purchase the kit and perform the testing at home,sending the test swabs to the lab in order for the results to be determined. All of this can be done for less than one hundred dollars.
