DNA Forensic Test - Types
In the event that one or more individuals cannot participate in a relationship test (e.g. paternity test), a forensic sample can be used in place of a buccal swab sample. The total cost for a relationship test will be the cost of the identity test plus $180 US for each forensic sample.
A DNA forensic test can be used to determine the sex and number of individuals in a stain. This type of testing is often used to check for infidelity. For example, this test can determine whether male DNA is present on a stain. This test can also determine whether a stain contains the DNA of only one person, or more than one person.
Two samples can be tested and compared to see if they came from the same person.Next: Forensic Samples »
