When a test participant is deceased or unavailable to cooperate with your testing, we can attempt to utilize DNA from objects on which they have deposited it such as a toothbrush. This service extracts DNA present in the specimen you provide and then determines if there is sufficient DNA with which to proceed with a paternity or other family relationship test. As such, it is non-refundable should sufficient DNA not be obtained. You may purchase additional specimens as backups and we will refund any not used.
REMINDER: this service is an add-on to a paternity/family relationship test not a replacement for one — You must order a DNA test in order to avail of alternative sources of DNA. Please see the FAQ for additional info., including privacy and practical considerations, and a wide, sortable/searchable table of alternative sources of DNA designed to assist you in selecting the least costly specimen that fits your circumstances.
You may also obtain DNA from close relatives and perform a relationship study.
