DNA Maternity Testing

In those situation when you want to solve the Mystery, DNA Maternity testing can help you resolve any questions or doubts you may have about the Maternity of a child.

When we requires DNA Maternity Testing

Infant Mix-Ups in Hospitals

Infant mix-ups in hospitals could happen any day. It is been estimated that 1 out of every 1,000 infants is switched in hospitals in USA alone. This happens especially during the routine transfer of the baby immediately after birth: The baby is initially transferred to the mother, then to the bassinet, to the nursery, and then back to the mother.

Could we estimate how many Infants are changed in our Hospitals, where changing Boys with Girls is not rare.

Newborn Identification Method use in Our Modern hospitals and Maternity homes.
Newborn identification varies from hospital to hospital

1. One of the most prevalent methods is the use of corresponding ID bracelets between mothers and their babies.

Despite advancements in ID tag technology, infant-mother mix-ups occur more than 23,000 times each year in USA alone.

Some of the reasons are :

• Misreading infant or mother bracelet information
• Bracelets falling off the infants' ankles or wrists, which is particularly common in newborns, whose arms and legs   may shrink after birth due to water loss
• Bed mix-ups, in which a child is removed for bathing or treatment and then returned to the wrong bed
• Mix-ups of babies with similar or identical names
• Misreading of sequential names or ID numbers
• Inadequate physical security mechanisms
• Parents who are not fluent in the staff's native language

If a question arises about the baby's identity, the most reliable way to be sure he or she hasn't been switched in the hospital is for the mother and child to undergo a maternity DNA test.

2. Hospitals also employ footprinting and/or fingerprinting of the infant at birth for identification. This interpretive technology has also improved over the last 80 years, but inconsistencies–and thus opportunities for infant-mother mix-ups–remain. Footprinting and fingerprinting require consistent and careful procedures, and if a staff member is not highly experienced in these techniques, the chance of less complete and clear footprints and fingerprints is greater.

In light of some of the shortcomings these forms of identification may have, maternity DNA testing is becoming more popular when doubt arises. Maternity DNA tests compare the genetic information of the mother with the child to identify matches. Because the DNA of a child comes directly from his or her parents, half of the DNA should match the mother's DNA. DNA samples are painlessly collected through buccal swabs–the process of rubbing the inside of one's cheeks to pick up cheek (buccal) cells that contain DNA–and submitted to a laboratory for analysis. In as little as a day, the laboratory can determine if the child and mother are biologically related.

A DNA paternity test has two possible results:

  • Exclusion—the alleged Father / Mother is not the biological Father / Mother of the child. This result is indicated by a 0% probability of paternity.
  • Non-Exclusion—the alleged father / Mother is not excluded as the biological Father / Mother of the child. This result is indicated by a probability of paternity of 99.9% or higher. (For standard paternity tests involving the mother, child, and alleged father, DDC guarantees at least a 99.99% probability of paternity.)

Home Paternity Testing

If you have determined that you do not need a DNA test for a legal matter — and only want to take a paternity / Maternity test strictly for your own knowledge — a home DNA test might be an appropriate option for you. In a home DNA test, the tested parties collect the DNA samples themselves, at a time and place of their choosing.
You can simply place a test order directly to us or any of Our Affiliate Organization, and we will send you the kit in discreet packaging.

DNA Collection Kit
Collecting the DNA sample is quick and painless. Swab the buccal ( inner cheek ) of all participants.
Once you place an, we will send you a DNA sample collection kit within one business day. Testing kits are available at our Affiliate organization.

The kit will contain the following:

  • Complete instructions for collecting the DNA samples, ( Video CD describing the whole Procedure )
  • Buccal swabs and swab envelopes for the child, alleged father, and mother (if participating)
  • Business return envelope for shipping the samples back to the DTA.

Please note that the results of a home DNA test cannot be used as legal proof of paternity, because the identity of the persons tested cannot be verified.

DNA Testing: The  Advantage
DTA (DNA Tells All.com ) in association with DDC leads the DNA testing industry in its quality of service, which focuses on ensuring DNA test accuracy as well as a smooth experience for our clients.

Chain of Custody Procedure requires sample collection fees (Participant Paid this sample collection fees directly to sample collector).

Kindly discuss your situation with one of our caring, confidential case managers by calling or e-mail.

Additional Tested Parties
We can test additional children, alleged fathers / mother if needed; there is a DNA testing and analysis fee of P. Rs. 15950/= for each additional tested party. The additional tested parties need to be added to the case during setup (before the testing process is started in the laboratory).

For the associated fees, please review our fee schedule.

Although 16 (loci) DNA test is Industry standard for Paternity Testing.
Our Lab test 20 (loci) in all our Testing, a New standard in DNA Testing.
