PATERNITY TEST (Self Collection):

A paternity test can determine whether or not a particular man is the biological father of a particular child. This procedure is quick and easy. All we need to do the test is a DNA buccal swab from the mother, father and child. A buccal swab looks like a long cotton wool bud. It is used to collect cells from the inside of the mouth cheeks. DNA is consistent throughout the body, so the DNA in cheek cells is identical to the DNA in blood cells. The swab allows for non-invasive and painless collection of DNA.
