DNA Testing - the New Way to Know if Someone is the Biological Parent

By Oliver Samuels Subscribe to RSS | June 14th 2012 | Views:

The very concept of human reproduction began with the emergence of the very first couple on Earth from Paradise- Adam and Eve. Their children might have been sure of the lineage of their family and parents but as human relationships started to get complicated, the lineage and truth behind the parentage of a child also started getting shady with time. Things might have been better decades ago but in this century, the picture is really ugly. Where the truth of the mother’s words failed, science stepped in to prove the parentage of a child in the form of DNA Testing. Welcome to the modern world where a child can be unsure of whom his or her parent is.

DNA testing is not a necessity in every case though. It comes only in the picture if there is a question mark on the identity of the child’s father. It is the best way to provide proof in the Court of Law in cases of adoption, survivor benefits or disputed parentage, seeking custody and many other issues.

For those who have just heard of it but do not know what DNA testing is all about, it is a procedure used by forensic experts to establish paternity of a child and involves testing of both the parents and the child.

Since DNA testing is a specialized method, it cannot be carried out by any individual alone. Moreover for legal authorities like The United States Embassy, Homeland Security and Department of Health to accept the results of the test, it is essential that the tests are carried out by authorized centers. Testing laboratories with AABB certification are generally the recognized ones in the country. These are trusted because of the level of testing that is carried out by professionals involved with the laboratories. All tests are checked twice to ensure credibility. Moreover authorized centers try to deliver fast results for example within 3 days at the most or 5 days for a prenatal test. Such centers also maintain strict communication protocols so that the secrecy of the client signed up for paternity testing or maternity testing is maintained.

DNA testing is not hard or complicated as may sound. As the alleged parent, one does not have to do much regarding it. All that is needed of the parents is to provide samples that need to be tested. For example, blood and blood stains, spit, plucked hair, cigarette butts, chewing gum, urine etc. The centers also carry out different types of DNA testing for example Paternity- Deceased Alleged Father DNA Test, Maternity DNA Testing, Siblingship, Full Siblingship DNA Testing Study and many more.

For a child, it is crucial to know who the parents are. It is an important part of his or her growing up, his or her future. The characteristic traits of the parents are inherited by the child through the genes. DNA testing therefore often acts as a sure shot method to establish who the real parents of the child in question are. Moreover, DNA testing can assure one peace of mind.

There is nothing as crude as distorted relationships and where it is the question of a child’s future, DNA testing will hardly pinch your pocket.
