Aunt/Uncle DNA Test
Our Aunt/Uncle or Avuncular DNA testing determines the statistical probability that a person is the aunt of a child. This type of DNA test is known as Avuncular DNA testing.
When trying to determine an avuncular relationship the most conclusive method, if at all possible, is to test the parent of the child in question. In cases where the parent of the child is not available to provide a DNA sample, an avuncular DNA test can be carried out to determine the probability of the relationship.
Avuncular DNA tests are different from a paternity test which will always provide a conclusive result. When processing an avuncular DNA test, the laboratory will establish the genetic profile of the alleged relative and the child.
An avuncular index is calculated using these genetic profiles.
- If the avuncular DNA index is less than 1.00 it indicates that the tested persons are not related.
- If the avuncular DNA index is greater than 1.00 it indicates that the tested persons are more likely to be true biological relatives.
The higher the avuncular DNA index value, the greater the likelihood that the tested applicants are true biological relatives.
Which Aunt/Uncle DNA Test is right for me?
You have two main options when choosing an Avuncular DNA Test:
- Testing for peace of mind, which produces results that can resolve family relationship questions but cannot be used for legal purposes
- Legal testing, which produces legally defensible results that are useful for such matters as family law disputes and immigration
Peace of Mind DNA Testing
If you opt for a peace of mind test, we will send you a free sample collection kit. You and the other tested parties will collect your own samples following the simple instructions provided in the kit. Please note that peace of mind test results are not legally defensible.
Legal DNA Testing
If you opt for a legal test, your DNA samples will be collected by a neutral third party such as a doctor, a nurse or one of our representatives. This third-party collection is an important element of the chain of custody process, which will make your test results legally defensible.
