- Dallas DNA is happy to make your testing as Convenient easy as possible.
- DNA testing made easy Call us at 972-464-7476
- We come to your home or Business to collect the samples. If you have a newborn baby we can also collect the specimens at the hospital.
- Our price is unbeatable without sacrificing quality. We offer DNA testing for paternity, maternity and all other relationships (grandparents, siblings, aunts/uncles). We also offer specialty testing, such as, immigration, deceased individuals, incarcerated individuals, unborn children and more.
- DNA paternity testing determines the biological father of a child. We all inherit our DNA from our biological parents — half from our mother, and half from our father. A DNA paternity test compares a child's DNA pattern with that of an "alleged father" to determine if there is a match. When performed correctly in an experienced laboratory, it's the most definitive proof of a biological relationship.
- If you need paternity test results that can be used as a legal document, then a Legal DNA Test must be performed. Listed below are some common legal reasons that this test is used for:
• Child Support • Birth Certificate • Court Order • Child Custody • Tax Forms • Adoption
• Immigration • Will/Estate • Other Legal Reasons
Our Lab holds 6 laboratory certifications, including the prestigious AABB
accreditation in relationship testing since 1996.
Our lab is the only lab to GUARANTEE 100% accurate results, because they are the only lab that runs every legal paternity test TWICE.
Serving all of DFW, Plano, Frisco, McKinney, Richardson, Celina, Denton, Mesquite, Garland, Anna, Grand Prairie, Arlington, Little Elm, Carrollton, Addison, Gunter, Prosper, Princeton. Most other small towns around the Metroplex.
If you are out of our Mobile Area we can get a collector in your area. Call for information 972-464-7476
If the patient requires the results for court proceedings or for immigration, strict chain-of-custody procedures must be followed during the specimen collection appointment. Patients are not allowed to collect their own samples for legal testing. To proceed with legal testing, please contact us directly at 972-464-7476 to schedule an appointment for chain-of-custody specimen collection. Specimens from different members do not have to be collected at the same time or in the same city. Regardless of which city the sample is collected in, the results will become available 2 to 5 days after sample collection.
NEW NON INVASIVE PRENATAL PATERNITY TEST
The cost of our NIPP test is $1599.00.
HOW DOES A PRENATAL PATERNITY TEST WORK? When waiting to determine the biological father of your child is not an option, this alternative may be for you – a non-invasive Prenatal Paternity Test with zero risk to the fetus. This non-invasive test gives you an accurate determination (with 99% or more certainty) of who the child’s biological father is as early as 9 weeks of pregnancy and eliminates risk to the fetus.
We are now offering a FREE Gender reveal if you order this test. Normally $200.00 Extra Charge.
We can also offer the Peace of mind test for $199.00. NON Legal test.
We will mail you a kit to collect the sample and send it to the lab yourself.

Additional Parties Tested
Grand parentage Test
A grand parentage DNA test determines whether a couple could be the biological grandparents of a child. It is an indirect way to determine family relationships when an alleged father is not available for a paternity test. Grand parentage test results may be used as proof in Social Security benefit and other inheritance claims as well as in some immigration cases.
In the test, the child’s DNA profile is compared with the DNA profiles of the alleged father’s biological parents. Since a child inherits half of his/her DNA from the mother (maternal side) and half from the father (paternal side), the paternal half should match DNA passed down from the alleged grandparents. The mother’s participation is encouraged to expedite analysis; motherless grand parentage tests take longer to complete because of the extended analysis required.
Single Grand parentage Testing A single grand parentage test determines if a child is biologically related to a single alleged grandparent. Single Grand parentage testing is a good option when there is only one of the deceased/missing AF parents available for testing.
- The report will indicate the probability of relatedness and a likelihood ratio similar to a reconstruction report. Refer to the relationship page.
- The limitations of this test is that a single grandparent shares only 25% of their DNA with a grandchild. A low likelihood of grand parentage may indicate that the tested parties are not related or indicate that the majority of the genetic information inherited by the missing AF and transmitted to the child did not come from the tested grandparent.
- We strongly encourage the mother to participate so we can account for one half of the child's genetic material and provide a more precise result. However, testing can be done without the mother of the child.
- In scenarios with limited relatives to test, investigate the possibility of utilizing Y-STR or Mt-DNA testing as well.
A sibling-ship test is a DNA test conducted to determine if two children share one or both parents (i.e., if they are half or full siblings). It is an indirect way to determine family relationships when an alleged father is not available for a paternity test. Results of a sibling-ship test may be used as proof in Social Security benefit and other inheritance claims.
A sibling-ship test starts with the analysis of known relatives:
Sibling 1 and Sibling 2 do not share the same mother and they want to find out if they share the same biological father—in this situation, a half sibling-ship test is performed.
Sibling 1 and Sibling 2 share the same biological mother but are unsure if they share the same biological father—in this situation, a full sibling-ship test is performed.
In the test, the siblings’ DNA profiles are compared to see how much of their DNA could have come from a common father. Participation of the mother(s) is encouraged to help exclude the mother’s contribution to the children’s DNA. Sibling-ship tests require more analysis, and they could be more costly and take a longer time to complete without the mother’s participation.
Twin Zygosity Test
A twin zygosity test is a DNA test that definitively shows whether twins are identical or fraternal.
During OB-GYN visits, the physician might be able to tell whether twins are identical or fraternal through ultrasound examination of the placenta. When the twins are born, pathological examination of the placenta can also be done to determine zygosity.
However, studies have shown that either method is not 100% accurate, and scientists recommend DNA testing to determine zygosity. There are also many cases in which medical records regarding zygosity have been lost, or doubt may have arisen because of the twins’ physical characteristics as the grow up. In such cases, only a DNA test will be able to reveal the truth.
A twin zygosity test compares the twins’ DNA profiles to see whether they match—an exact match proves that the twins are identical.
The results of a twin zygosity test may be used to satisfy personal curiosity as well as to help solve health problems for the twins later down the road. For example, in the event that a twin needs an organ or tissue transplant donor, the identical twin is a perfect choice.
Identical vs. Fraternal Twins
Identical twins come from one fertilized egg, called a zygote. The zygote, which usually develops into one child, grows and splits early in development to form two embryos—identical twins. Because the twins come from one egg and one sperm, they have exactly the same DNA. Fraternal twins, on the other hand, develop when there are two different eggs in the mother’s womb that are fertilized by two different sperms. Fraternal twins will not have exactly the same DNA, although like other siblings, they can be expected to share some of the DNA they inherit from both parents.
