Our DNA Test Vs Pharmacy – Drugstore DNA Test

Why Buy A DNA Test From Us Instead Of One From Your Local Pharmacy Or Drugstore?.

In today’s market, DNA test kits are readily available at your local CVS®, Walgreens®, Rite Aid®, or Walmart® pharmacy. At first, the Identigene DNA paternity test kit may seem like a quick and easy process.  Moreover, it may seem to save you money, but compare the details.  It really is not your best option.

Buying A Drugstore DNA Test? Consider This:

It may be tempting to buy a DNA test kit from a drugstore or pharmacy but before you do, consider these facts:

Have you already purchased a drugstore DNA test kit from CVS®, Rite Aid®, Walgreens®, or Walmart® local pharmacy? Contact us today before you send your samples in.  We have options that may allow you to still save time and money.

They Cost More In The End

Please consider this: when you buy a drug store DNA test kit, you pay anywhere from $20-$40 for the kit. This initial cost is solely paid to the store for that store to stock the item on their shelf. It is not a partial payment or deposit for your actual DNA paternity testing. Although you leave the store with the kit in hand, you still have yet to pay for the test itself.

Generally, you are required to spend $89-$129 for lab processing after you purchase your collection kit from a store. This is in addition to what you paid for the testing kit. Then when you send your samples to the lab, yet another additional cost for you.

Our complete full service informational DNA paternity testing is only $120.00. This includes having the home DNA test kit sent to you via FREE overnight delivery; which means you could have your test kit in your hand the very next day. We also provide at no additional cost, FREE return shipping back to our lab.

Not to mention, we provide you with quicker results!  Simply place the samples in the return prepaid pre-addressed mailer and drop them off at the courier’s location or box to send your kit back to the lab for testing.  When all samples are in the lab, the paternity test results are e-mailed in 2 business days.  Optional hard copy results are sent to the bill to address unless otherwise noted on your order.

We Offer More

Another consideration you should make when purchasing a drugstore DNA test kit at a local pharmacy, is that these tests are only for non-legal paternity tests. On the other hand, PaternityUSA provides premium AABB accredited testing.  We conduct both informational and legally binding paternity, sibling, grandparent, avuncular relationship testing and more.  We also pride ourselves on our world class customer care and work to make sure the client experience is positive.  We send email communications when your order ships, when your samples are received, and when your test is complete.

Informational And Legally Binding DNA Testing

Lastly, if you need an AABB accredited legal DNA test to be used in court proceedings for example for child support, social security benefits or to change a name or birth certificate, you must have chain of custody. Chain of custody can only be obtained through purchasing a legally binding DNA test. Test kits bought from a local drug store or pharmacy can only be used for informational purposes.

If you have already purchased a drug store DNA test collection kit, or a DNA kit from another lab? We can still process your samples. Please contact us at 877-786-9543, or email us. Our case managers are happy to help!

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 🙂

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.


Peter Johnson

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
