Paternity DNA Test Centers In Nigeria And There Cost

DNA Paternity testing is an important tool available to prove or disprove a father’s biological
relationship to a child. The test uses a DNA profile for each individual (both father and child) and
compares the data to determine if there is a genetic match. If the child and potential father
genetically match, then he is the biological father. If the data does not match, then he is excluded
as the biological father.
Paternity tests can be done be before the child is born or after birth. Tests done for unborn baby is
called prenatal DNA paternity testing. Here, the procedure for collecting samples (amnioncentesis and chorionic villus sampling) is invasive and can cause miscarriage. It is also very expensive.
Peternity screening done after birth is the commonest, safest, cheaper, more convenient, and noninvasive.
How is it done?
The testing is performed by collecting buccal cells found on the inside of a person’s cheek using a
buccal swab or cheek swab. These swabs have wooden or plastic stick handles with a cotton on
synthetic tip. The collector rubs the inside of a person’s cheek to collect as many buccal cells as
possible. The buccal cells are then sent to a laboratory for testing. For paternity testing, samples
from the alleged father and child would be needed. For maternity testing, samples from the alleged
mother and child would be needed.
How Long Does a DNA Paternity Test Result Take?
Most laboratories usually can process results in 2 to 3 days from the time your samples are
received. There are also expedited methods to ensure a fast turnaround time if results are needed
more urgently, such as for adding a name to a birth certificate, for immigration or court cases.
