    1. Collect your DNA in the privacy of your home via simple mouth swab.
    2. Mail the cotton buds to the lab.
    3. Lab work takes 1-2 days. You will receive a detailed test report via email that you may print. We do not supply hardcopy reports for home tests.

Product Description

Quickly and easily determine whether a man is or is not the true father of a child

We do not charge extra for testing the mother’s DNA and greatly encourage that you do so unless she is deceased or insanely uncooperative. Any lab that attempts to charge you extra for testing the mother should be treated with suspicion as discussed in our FAQ: Why Do We Test the Mother at No Extra Charge?

We operate online but still have strong community ties. We are fully licensed and registered with the Department of Trade (DTI) so you can check our record easy enough. We are well-known to our colleagues at the PNP National DNA Crime Lab and, in fact, they refer us cases. We are active in the Rotary Club and other community organizations.

We operate online in order to serve the entire Philippines with affordable DNA testing. There is simply no need to incur expensive travel to avail of modern DNA testing. It is quite simple to collect DNA specimens in the privacy of your home or at your attorney’s office. In fact, you already leave your DNA pretty much everywhere you go, just like your fingerprints. In fact, your fingerprints contain your DNA as well.

You are welcome to visit us in Roxas City, Capiz.

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 business 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 not just 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.  The results are then compared by a forensic scientist. Any deviation between the two runs is cause to re-run the test.

We are fanatics about test quality. We do not charge extra to test the mother’s DNA. We do not charge extra to test each person twice to assure that no mistakes have been made.

Purpose of Test – This is an informational test for your own personal knowledge.

  • While there is nothing to prevent you from printing your test report and submitting it to the authorities, we do not offer it for that purpose and caution you that you will likely spend more money attempting to convince officials that the persons named in your test report were in fact the ones whom you actually tested and that you did not tamper with the lab report than it would have cost you to purchase our Legal Test. Please ask your attorney about chain-of-custody.
  • If you think that you might go to court but have no definite plans, you should select the option of our Legal Test to defer purchasing the notarized, hardcopy report until you are certain that you are going to court. That way you can prove the chain-of-custody should the need arise but not waste your money if it doesn’t.
  • Court is expensive and slow. If you are serious about filing a case, the small additional cost for our Legal DNA Test is a worthwhile expenditure.
  • Your attorney should advise you further. We are restricted by law from providing you legal advice. However, we are permitted to discuss these matters in great detail with your attorney and we do not charge for brief consultations. We suggest that you print the appropriate example report from our website and take it with you to your attorney or the NSO to inquire.

Indicate whether the mother is being tested or only the alleged father and child. We do not charge extra to test the mother’s DNA so most clients avail of this option. More about that in our FAQ

If you would like to test additional children or alleged fathers, please indicate the number of extra participants. There is a small charge for each additional participant however we do not charge for the additional analysis that must be performed to differentiate among related alleged parents as long as they are submitted together. Related potential fathers will have many genes in common so if the possible fathers are related, then you MUST either test them all or purchase our extended panel (possibly both) in order to rely on the results.

In general, it is less expensive to test all possible fathers/mothers and children together than to run additional tests at a later date.

Indicate whether you wish to use your own cotton buds or have us send you some. Ours are very nice however it is faster and more private if you obtain your supplies locally and only costs a few pesos. We provide detailed instructions by email. if you are on a tight schedule where a day or difference in shipping time matters, we recommend that you purchase testing supplies locally as domestic courier service is not always punctual. We are happy to send you supplies if you change your mind after reading the instructions so please be sure that the ship-to address is accurate. Remember to select a compatible shipping method when you checkout: “Nothing to Ship” for customer provided supplies, for example.

You have two possibilities for determining paternity when the father is deceased or unavailable to cooperate with your testing:

  1. You may obtain DNA from his close relatives and perform a paternity reconstruction or family relationship study. Those are found here. Do not order this option if any of his relatives could also be a potential father.
  2. Collect his DNA from objects on which he has deposited it such as his toothbrush. There is an extra charge for processing these alternative sources of DNA however it is usually less costly than ordering a genetic reconstruction. You have many choices for these Alternative Sources of DNA. Please see the FAQ for additional info., including a sortable, searchable table.

Laboratory services are lightening-fast: 85% of our paternity 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.
