A DNA Avuncular Test is performed to determine if two individuals are related to each other as aunt-nephew(niece) or as uncle-nephew(niece). This test may be used to assist in determining paternity if the alleged father is not available for testing, but a biological full sibling of the alleged father is available. The mother is strongly encouraged to participate. This should be the last resort of testing if father and paternal grandparents are not available.
Specimen collections for this type of test require a non-invasive cheek swab collection from the child and a full biological sibling of the alleged father.
Because of the rare instances for this type of DNA test as well as multiple variables, this test is only able to be used to determine relatedness and not necessarily paternity. This test and its results are for your own personal knowledge and may not be used for legal purposes.
DNA AVUNCULAR TEST: $430.00
Please Note: If a specimen collection is required to be performed in a location outside the Carolina Testing service area, we will arrange for the collection to be scheduled using our nationwide network of service providers. There is an additional specimen collection fee of $60.00 per collection that is not able to be conducted at a Carolina Testing office.
