Family Relationship

Family Relationship testing consists of many types of situations where a DNA sample is unavailable from the alleged parent, such as sibling studies (DNA sibling testing) to determine if someone is the biological brother or sister of other family individuals. The parties needed for testing depend upon the facts of the specific case. Please contact PTC Laboratories to discuss with a scientist the parties who are available for testing. We will make suggestions on who should be tested, and give you an idea of what level of certainty can be expected from a test of the available parties.

For family reconstructions, PTC Laboratories can use STR and Y chromosome DNA analysis. This powerful battery of testing allows PTC Laboratories to provide reliable results for kinship testing. The unique availability of powerful RFLP loci at PTC Laboratories provides more conclusive answers to difficult family reconstruction cases. Click here for pricing.
