A twin zygosity study is a DNA test that definitively determines whether twins are identical or fraternal. This can be crucial information for locating compatible organ donors.

These are genuine Zygosity studies not simple ancestry tests. Results may be used in court and for other official purposes as long as the chain-of-custody is maintained. This is not an “Immigration” test although some countries may permit its use for that purpose. USCIS does not and will advise you further when you open your CRBA case with them.

Extremely fast, accurate and reasonably priced: 2x Dual Testing and multiple accreditations make this the most accurate twin zygosity test available anywhere in the world. Period.

Beware of unaccredited labs. Even our informational (“Home)” tests are run by the same highly trained personnel on the same tightly calibrated equipment as our highly accredited (AABB, NATA, ISO, etc.) chain/”Legal” tests. We do not “farm-out” home tests to unaccredited subsidiaries.

NATA forms and processing available for an additional charge. Kindly email us the particulars of your case and be sure to inform us whether specimens are to be collected in or outside of Australia.

No hidden charges! Price includes all testing supplies with shipping to you or your attorney anywhere in the Philippines. You are only responsible for the small cost of postage to send your specimens back to the lab.

Product Description

A twin zygosity study is a DNA test that definitively determines whether twins are identical or fraternal. This can be crucial information for locating compatible organ donors.

  • We offer 2 versions: one for personal knowledge (“Home Test”) and one that provides for documented chain of custody (“Legal Test”). The latter is used for official purposes such as evidence in a court of law and also to prevent paternity test fraud. It is not an “Immigration” test although some countries may permit its use for that purpose. USCIS does not and will advise you further when you open your CRBA case with them. You cannot get a “head start” by ordering a DNA test prior to opening such a case however it is often beneficial to confirm grandparentage prior to going to the effort and expense of applying for a CRBA.
  • Reminder: If specimens are being collected from a minor child, a legal guardian must give their consent regardless of whether that guardian is a test participant or not.

NATA forms and processing available for an additional charge. Kindly email us the particulars of your case and be sure to inform us whether specimens are to be collected in or outside of Australia.

The #1 question that we are constantly asked is: “Why are your DNA Paternity and Relationship Tests priced so low?” That’s usually a polite way of asking if we are “for real“? If you are safe ordering something as important as a DNA test from us? If you are going to receive a high quality test? If there is a catch?

Our low prices are due to a combination of factors. The chief ones being our efficient busy model and economies of scale. As with Amazon.com and Lazada.com.ph, we sell exclusively online and provide extensive information on our website so we do not need a large staff. This also allows us to serve the entire Philippines (and beyond), spreading our costs over a larger client base which greatly reduces our cost per client.

Our DNA testing makes use of modern DNA specimen collection that can be easily performed at home or your attorney’s office. This also saves our clients a ton of money on travel and court appearance fees.

We choose to pass the savings on to our clients because we believe in the power of affordable DNA testing to promote justice in the Philippines. We treat paternity testing as a social welfare program rather than a business. As such, we are only required to break-even after expenses, not to earn a big profit.

You are entirely safe in ordering a DNA test from our website and will save a great deal of money doing so.

Laboratories do not often make mistakes. 2x double-blind testing is designed to catch those rare instances when something has gone wrong so that you will have complete confidence in the results of your DNA Paternity Test.

Every person is tested twice using completely different machines and laboratory personnel for each test. The results are then compared by a forensic scientist. Any deviation between the two runs is cause to re-run the test.

Purpose of Test – How do you intend to use the test results?

  • Informational tests quickly, accurately, and privately provide results for your own personal knowledge. Also known as Home, Personal Knowledge and PK DNA tests. However we have no assurance that the persons named are in fact the ones who provided the specimens. If you are concerned that an unscrupulous person may swap-out specimens prior to sending them to the laboratory then you should consider our Legal test.
  • Legal tests preserve the chain-of-custody and include a hardcopy of the notarized report. We highly recommend that you discuss your situation with an attorney and have your attorney contact us prior to spending the extra money for a Legal test. Not an “Immigration” test although some countries may permit its use for that purpose. USCIS does not and will advise you further when you open your CRBA case with them. You cannot get a “head start” by ordering a DNA test prior to opening such a case however it is often beneficial to confirm relationships via this test prior to going to the effort and expense of applying for a CRBA.

You will provide specimens for the two siblings only. No parental specimens are required for this test.

Laboratory services are lightening-fast: 85% of our twin zygosity tests are processed in a single day. 98% within 2 business days. Labs often charge as much just for an upgrade to rush service as we do for the entire test which includes rush processing in our low price. Our laboratories are highly automated so we are able to process paternity tests quickly, accurately and inexpensively.

Dispatch your specimens on Monday by premium courier and you will almost always receive your results report the same week. Save with economy courier service and you will usually receive your test results early-to-middle the following week. We do not promise laboratory hours on weekends and holidays.

Registered mail is slower but only costs around ₱175. We purposely do not bundle specimen shipping into the price of our tests so that clients with extremely limited financial resources can still afford our high quality DNA testing by sending their specimens via inexpensive, slower Registered Mail. So your actual time to receive results will vary from less than a week to upwards of 3 weeks depending on how you choose to ship.

We pride ourselves on fast service however remind you that we are not a provider of emergency medical services. We do not promise instant response 24x7x365. Courier acceptance times vary and shipments can be delayed. Occasionally our lab becomes overloaded and needs an extra day to catch-up. So if you are on an extremely tight schedule where a day or two’s slippage could cause you great concern, kindly avail of a different provider.

We do our best to pack your testing supplies within one business day of our receipt of your paid order. Please remember that shipper acceptance and cutoff times tend to be somewhat loose in the Philippines so it is best to assume that the actual shipment of your supplies begins the the first business day after we pack your order.

Free shipping is via Registered Mail which can take anywhere from 3 days to a week (or more) to reach you depending on your location in the Philippines. Domestic Registered Mail is not trackable online so you will need to contact your local PHLPost office for updates. We highly recommend that you avail of inexpensive courier shipping for the small price of ₱250. Expedited shipping of your testing supplies via courier service is available as an option when you checkout. International shipments cost more and take a little longer, of course.

Shipping time is highly variable and beyond our control. We provide a tracking number so that you know where your supplies are and when they are due to arrive. Please monitor your shipment in case the courier has difficulty locating your house

We have a library of example DNA test reports that you may freely download to see how results are reported. The downloads are handled as zero cost products which can be accessed here. We invite labs to provide additional sample reports and greatly appreciate their support.
