Paternity test without the alleged father’s sample

In cases where it is not possible to test a sample of an alleged father for reasons of absence, non-cooperation or death, our center offers an alternative solution called: indirect testing to determine paternity without an alleged father’s sample. Indirect paternity testing compares the DNA profile of the tested child with the DNA profile of a related family member.

Another suitable test is the Grandparent DNA test, when it is possible to compare the DNA profile of the child and one or both paternal-grandparents. In cases where the parents of the alleged father are not alive or unable to provide their DNA sample, it is possible to test the siblings of the alleged father (aunt or uncle of the tested child) – Avuncular test (DNA test aunt / uncle). Male child can also be tested for a related male relative using the Y-STR DNA test (Y chromosome is only present in males).

There are many ways to determine biological fatherhood without a sample of an alleged father. For all DNA tests mentioned above, it is also possible to test non-standard samples such as hair, toothbrush, nails, cigarette butt, etc..
