In a standard legal proceedings a paternity test of the alleged father, child, and sometimes the mother are tested using swab test samples from the cheek. A ‘Legal’ DNA paternity test not only requires accurate test results but also requires the proof of identity of each person who has participated in the test. The DNA samples are collected using buccal swabs samples that are painless, and accurate. The marker DNA patterns of the child are matched with those of the alleged father and mother if necessary. If a statistical confidence of 95% or more is achieved, the participating father and mother are taken as the biological parents of the child. In legal paternity issues, sampling is often done by trained, third party professionals.
Merit Mobile DT Services uses the "Cheek Swab" Tests only and does not perform blood samples prior to the birth of a child. A buccal swab is soft and resembles a large Q-Tip. It is used to collect a sample of cheek cells by simply rubbing the inside of the cheeks. It is as accurate as blood, as the DNA is the same. A person should, however, abstain from drinking coffee for a few hours before taking a sample, and smokers should rinse and brush their cheeks with a toothbrush before swabbing. Providing there is no complications of any kind, DNA results are generally completed within 3 to 5 working days (et. Monday – Friday). Our prices are the best in the area, accurate, and completed in just a few days. We also offer our services for testimony in court if requested by you, your attorney, or the judge.
Siblings, Aunts and Uncles, and Grandparents are sometimes a factor in determining the DNA (80% & up on DNA proof for grandparents) in some situations where legal custody of the child needs verified. Sometimes due to separation of children in foster homes and or change of guardianship, later in life, siblings want to find each other. This is an excellent way to prove you are truly blood related.
Infidelity Testing occurs when a spouse or significant other has suspected the need to prove infidelity in the relationship and or in court proceedings. A DNA test can be very effectively in determining whether the other partner has been unfaithful in the relationship. Once the reference sample is received, the DNA is extracted from both the semen detection sample and the reference sample. DNA profiles are then obtained and a comparison of the genetic systems are analyzed and interpreted. A report is issued that will either exclude the parties in question or include with an inclusion probability. Articles that may be used for this process is undergarments, bed or bath linens, pantyhose or other types of clothing.
