Precise At Home Aunt/Uncle Avuncular DNA Testing
Avuncular aunt/uncle DNA testing is a DNA comparison performed between an aunt or uncle and a niece or nephew. This DNA test will determine a statistical probability of participants sharing a biological relationship as that of aunt-uncle and niece-nephew. Our high quality premium at-home avuncular DNA testing service includes testing for two people; one aunt or uncle and one child. You may add more participants to the test as needed however, such as any known parent, for example the mother of the child.
Our precise aunt-uncle avuncular DNA testing results can be used to indirectly establish paternity or maternity when the alleged father or mother is not available for a paternity or maternity test. This test must be done with the parent’s full sibling, brother or sister, sharing the same mother and father.
Why Risk Using Your Own Q-tips® – We Overnight A Sterile Collection Kit To You For Free
Our avuncular DNA test package comes complete with testing kit, DNA analysis and test results. Some companies advertise that you can make your collection kit by using your own Q-tips®. However, we do not recommend this. Although doing so may save the company money, it may cause costly problems for you. There is a risk of multiple DNA samples being found on Q-tips® that are not sterile, or that may be handled by more than one person. Q-tips® you may have in your home could already have DNA from other sources on them. For this reason, we send your aunt/uncle DNA collection kit containing sterile buccal swabs to you at no charge. We even ship the collection kit to you via FREE UPS overnight so you have your sterile medical swabs as ready for use the next day.

PaternityUSA is here help you and your family find the answers you are seeking.
How To Increase The Accuracy Of Your Avuncular Test
Avuncular DNA testing may be performed with only the aunt or uncle and child, however it is recommended to add any known parent(s) to the test to increase the level of conclusiveness. In each person, half of their genes will come from the mother and half will come from the father. In a scenario where the testing parties would like to determine paternity and the known mother takes part in the avuncular test, her genetic profile will be compared against that of her child. As a result, all of the DNA inherited from the mother is eliminated. Then, we isolate the DNA the child inherited from the father. With the paternal DNA positively identified, it will more precisely match (or not match) that of the brother or sister of the alleged father. The outcome will be a more conclusive and accurate test result.
If the known mother is not able to take part in the test, we recommend choosing the option for testing additional markers as needed to ensure your test result is as conclusive as possible.
If Both Test Participants Are Male
A Y-STR test is a good option to consider for two males that would like to determine whether or not they are related on the paternal side. For example an uncle and nephew who want to determine if the alleged uncle’s brother is the father of the nephew. The Y-STR test looks at the Y-Chromosome that is passed from male to male in any unbroken male lineage. In this case, the alleged father and uncle will share the same Y-chromosome inherited from their common father. Likewise, the nephew will also have the same Y-STR passed down to him by his father. Y-STR is very unique, similar to a fingerprint and virtually unchanged for several generations. When Y-STRs are compared, the result is accurate and consequently produces a “Yes” or “No” answer to the question of whether or not the two tested males related through the male lineage.
The purpose of most avuncular testing is to indirectly determine paternity. In contrast, if a relationship is trying to be established on the mother’s side, an X-SV test offers a conclusive answer regardless of gender. Additionally, other relationship tests may also help establish paternity or maternity, such as a Siblingship test, or a Grandparentage test with one or both of the alleged parent’s parents. Alternately, consider a family reconstruction test if more than one paternal relative can participate in a DNA test.
Participants In Different Cities Or States
It isn’t uncommon for test participants to live too far apart to get together and do an avuncular DNA collection. We offer an option to order multiple collection kits for these situations. When ordering, choose the option for an additional address. We send each collection kit via overnight UPS. If you purchase the 2 day return mailer for just $5.00, we will include it for all addresses on your order. Before leaving the lab, the collection kits are linked through reference number and bar codes. When the samples are received back in lab, they are matched to your case through the bar code and reference numbers.
When You Need A Legal Or Immigration Avuncular Test
Our informational test provides you with peace of mind as to whether or not an aunt/uncle relationship exists between test participants. For avuncular DNA test results that are admissible in a court of law or other agency, purchase our AABB accredited legal aunt/uncle DNA test. Our legal avuncular DNA test results can be used as admissible court approved evidence in child support, visitation rights, change name on the birth certificate, estate, wills, probate situations, and more. If the embassy, USCIS or Dept. Of Homeland Security requires AABB accredited DNA evidence of a biological aunt/uncle relationship for an immigration case, then order our AABB accredited DNA test.
Testing Process And DNA Sample Collection
The avuncular DNA test process is very simple. DNA is collected with a cheek swab, which is also called a buccal, swab. Rub the swab against the inside of the cheek to collect skin cells from the inner cheek and gums. We conduct all of our tests twice. For that reason, we supply 4 buccal swabs per person in your collection kit. Take two swabs on each side of the mouth. It is best to rinse the mouth with water and refrain from smoking or drinking coffee or tea for 2-3 hours before the DNA collection. After collecting the DNA, place the samples in the prepaid return mailer. Finally, simply drop the samples off at the courier’s location or drop box to send the lab.
When all avuncular samples are in the lab, you will be notified by email that testing has begun. The test results from your aunt-uncle DNA test will be e-mailed in 3-5 business days. If purchased, hard copy results are sent to the billing address unless otherwise noted.
We ship our collection kits with free UPS overnight delivery Monday through Friday to physical addresses in the contiguous USA. Orders received and processed by 2:00 PM EST are shipped the same business day. Orders received after that time ship the following business day.
Other Types Of DNA Samples
The most common method of DNA collection is through a cheek swab. However, we understand there are times when a test participant is unable to submit a swab, such as may be the case where a family member may be deceased, incarcerated or otherwise unavailable. For these reasons, we offer forensic processing services for other types of DNA samples. Ear wax, hair (with the root ball attached), mucous on a tissue or handkerchief, finger or toe nail clippings, and toothbrushes are common forensic samples. Additionally, in certain cases blood or tissue samples may be available from a medical examiner or coroner’s office. Forensic sampling prices apply for non-standard samples. For pricing and more details on this process, please contact a DNA Case Manager.
Thank you for your immediate and prompt service...Highly recommendable for people seeking DNA Testings...Good job Paternity USA...Again thank you so much. Another VERY HAPPY customer 🙂
We just did a paternity test and used our doctor as the collector - the process was easy, legitimate and cheap! I highly recommend for those of us on a budget!
Awesome. Easy. Best Price Around! Got my son's birth certificate right now. Thank you all!
I purchased this Y-STR test to verify that my son is the father of my grandson. Now I know for sure this sweet little boy is my son's baby. Thanks Paternity USA for the peace of mind.
I took this test last month and my results were accurate. Easy process, good customer service and i like that they notified me of the status of my case all along the way. I always wondered and now I finally know for sure. I highly recommend you all every chance I get. Lisa L
I picked paternity usa for my immigration test for my mother and sisters. I'm so glad I did. Everything great - very good service and fast.
I don't usually write reviews, but I feel like this one is important. To have a lingering question of whether you belong in a family or not isn't anything easy to deal with. I wondered at first, because they are cheaper than everyone else, and felt like this is an area I shouldn't skimp on, but I'm so glad I picked these guys. I didn't skimp - I just found the best deal! My test result was very definitive and left no room for question. I want to let others know that you can find your answer and peace. Pick Paternity USA, they will do a great job. I can't say enough good about them. Thanks - Brenda
I am glad I chose this company for my paternity test. They scheduled an appointment for me and my daughter, it was within a couple of days, then the results were emailed to me less than a week later. I didn't have to do anything but show up for the appointment - they handled everything else from beginning to end.
Thank you guys for a process that is easy and quick. You've been so helpful! Jenn
I was given up for adoption and found a sibling through online records. We did the mtDNA test to see if we have the same mother (who is deceased), and I finally have been able to connect with my family. Even though I will always be thankful to my adoptive family, it's nice to add to that! Test was conclusive, process easy and good communication. Thanks 🙂
Immigration DNA Testing
The immigration process is a hard process for me and my family and PaternityUSA has experience and was able to help us through the whole thing. Happy with your service and I will let my friends know. Sincere thanks - the Claitte Family
I called PaternityUSA to help us with getting my children in from Jamaica, and so they performed the AABB accredited DNA test for immigration. The process only took (2) weeks, and everything was very smooth. I cannot thank these people enough.
I had bought a DNA kit at CVS pharmacy, but I wanted to see if I was the grandparent. I discovered that I could not use the drug store kit for a grandparent DNA test. I called paternityusa, and I'm very pleased with the work they performed. They really took the time to talk to me
I found my long lost brother after 40 years separation at birth. We did a y-str test, and it was very accurate. I happy to have my brother in my life again
This company did a wonderful job for our family, and we're so grateful we were able to find them on the internet. THANKS!!
