What Is A mtDNA Female Line Test?

The mtDNA test is also known as the female, or maternal lineage test.  Men and women both have mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA); however only women pass their mtDNA on to their children. Unlike the Y-chromosome, which is passed on from male to male by the father, the mitochondrial DNA is passed on from the female within the lineage, and is very unique to that female line.

Therefore, the mtDNA test can be done regardless of the gender of the tested individuals.  As a result, this DNA test is not limited to only females or only males, but either gender can participate in this type of testing. Anyone who believes they are related through a common female maternal lineage is a good candidate for the test, and can expect a very conclusive answer as a result.

In summation, the mtDNA female lineage DNA test will determine whether two or more individuals are related through their maternal lineage. For example, siblings with the same biological mother, or cousins related through their mothers can verify their family relationship with the mtDNA test. The Mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) sequence variation remains the same through many generations.

Why Risk Using Your Own Q-tips® – We ShipA Sterile Collection Kit To You For Free

Our female lineage DNA testing package is complete with collection kit, DNA analysis and test results. Some companies advertise that you can make your own collection kit by using your own Q-tips®. However, we do not recommend this practice. Q-tips® that are not sterile, or that may have been handled by more than one person, risk producing multiple DNA profiles. Q-tips® you may have in your home could already have DNA from other sources on them. For this reason, we send a DNA collection kit containing sterile buccal swabs to you at no charge.

Our lab is the largest and most trusted name in DNA testing through-out the USA, even the world. All of our DNA tests are performed by top-notch geneticists using advanced scientific methods and state of the art equipment in our AABB accredited laboratory. Our service is simply unparalleled and yet our prices are very affordable. You can rest assured your DNA samples are secure and your results will be accurate.

About The mtDNA Test

It is important to note that this test is different than a test that looks at a genetic profile.  The mtDNA female lineage DNA test does not determine which specific relationship is shared; rather whether or not the tested individuals share a relationship through an unbroken female line.Possible case scenarios include mother/child, grandmother/grandchild, aunt (sister to the mother) and niece or nephew, cousins whose mothers may be sisters, and many more.

The mtDNA test looks into the Mitochondrial DNA of each individual, and extracts a unique mtDNA  profile. The chart to the right gives a visual illustration of a maternal lineage.
For example, if a female Child “A” and her alleged half-brother Child “B” (Child “B” having the same or a different father than Child “A”) want to know if they have the same biological mother or maternal grandmother, and the test results show they have the same mtDNA profile, it is very likely that they are of the same maternal lineage. If the mtDNA profiles do not match, then this is indicates they do not share the same maternal lineage.

Testing Process And DNA Sample Collection

The mtDNA testing process is very simple. DNA is collected on a cheek swab, also called a buccal swab. Simply rub the swab painlessly against the inside of the cheek.  In this process, skin cells collect on the swab. We conduct all of our tests twice. For that reason, there will be 4 buccal swabs per person in your collection kit. Do 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. Once the swabs have been taken, place the samples in the return prepaid mailer. Finally, drop the samples off at the courier’s location or box to send your samples to the lab for testing.

When all samples are in the lab, you will be notified via email that testing has begun. This type of analysis takes longer in the lab due to the nature of the test. We will email the results of your mtDNA test when the test is complete, within 14-21 business days.

We ship our collection kits 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 2:00 PM EST ship the following business day.

Participants In Different States or Cities

It isn’t uncommon for test participants to live too far apart to get together for a DNA collection. We offer an option to have multiple collection kits shipped out for these situations. When you place your order, simply choose the option for an additional address. We send each collection kit for all addresses on your order within the contiguous USA with the same shipping method as the first.  The collection kits are linked through reference numbers and bar codes before they leave the lab.  We match your samples to your case through those bar codes and reference numbers.

Legal, Informational And Other Testing Options

Our informational female lineage test can provide you with peace of mind of whether or not a biological relationship exists between the test participants. If you need your mtDNA test result to be admissible in a court of law or other governmental domestic agency, then please purchase our AABB accredited legal mtDNA test. Also, our legal mtDNA tests are often used as admissible court approved evidence in case of child support, visitation rights, change name on the birth certificate, estate, wills, probate situations, and/or other cases. Order our AABB accredited DNA test for immigration purposes when you need to submit your result to an embassy or USCIS.

Furthermore, there may be other tests that can help in determining more exact relationships such as the siblingship test for testing with possible brothers/sisters, grandparent DNA testing for an alleged grandparent and grandchild, or the avuncular aunt/uncle DNA test with a full sibling of the alleged parent. Of course maternity and paternity tests are always conclusive if the possible mother or father is available for testing.

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 (must have the root ball attached), mucous on a tissue, finger or toe nail clippings, and toothbrushes are common forensic samples. Additionally, in certain cases tissue or blood 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.

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 grandparent testing. I called paternityusa, they were able to use the kit I bought, and I'm very pleased with the work they performed.
