Which Test Do I Need? Legal Or Home Test?

Legal DNA Testing

If you need a paternity test or maternity test that can be used as a legal document to change the name of a birth certificate or obtain child support benefits, a Legal DNA Test is required in Columbia, SC.

Accurate and reliable legal DNA results are paramount for court proceedings and legal documentation. Midlands Exams & Drug Screening follows strict chain-of-custody protocols, ensuring the integrity of samples and validity of results. Proper identification, such as a valid driver's license or legal ID, is mandatory for parents or legal guardians during the sample collection process. This step establishes the identity of individuals involved, maintaining credibility of test results.

Home DNA Test

If you need the test just for personal reasons, a Home Test will suffice. We will collect the home test, or you may collect the test yourself. Results in 3 to 4 business days.

When it comes to personal testing needs, convenience and privacy are of utmost importance. For individuals in Columbia, SC, Midlands Exams & Drug Screening offers the option to have trained professionals collect samples or provide a home test kit that can be used in the comfort and privacy of your own space.

Paternity Testing

DNA paternity testing determines whether a man could be the biological father of a child. The mother does not have to be tested, however testing is simplified for the lab if the mother's sample is submitted.

If the alleged father is not available for testing, alternative options will be explored with you. The result of a DNA paternity test is either an exclusion (the alleged father is NOT the biological father), or an inclusion (the alleged father is considered the biological father).

The DNA test guarantees at least 99.99% probability of paternal inclusions or 100% certainty of exclusion. Paternity testing can be arranged nationwide.

Maternity Testing

Similar to paternity testing, DNA maternity testing can determine whether a woman is the biological mother of a child. The alleged father's sample can simplify the testing process, but it is not required. The result will either exclude or include the tested woman as the biological mother.

Midlands Exams & Drug Screening follows strict protocols to ensure accurate and reliable maternity testing results, with a minimum 99.99% probability of inclusion or 100% certainty of exclusion.

Sibling DNA Testing

Sibling DNA testing can establish genetic relationships between siblings, whether full or half-siblings. This type of testing can be useful in various situations, such as inheritance disputes, immigration cases, or personal curiosity.
