Precise At Home Y-STR Male Lineage DNA Testing
Our Y-STR male lineage DNA testing delivers very conclusive test results that will answer the question – are the tested males from the same paternal line. The test focuses on the STR (Short Tandem Repeat) from the Y-chromosome passed from male to male. The Y-chromosome produces a variable sequence that is almost as unique as a fingerprint and is passed from father to son. This sequence will be virtually identical in an unbroken male lineage for generations. Subsequently, if the tested males are from the same paternal line, they will have matching Y-STR profiles.
The cost of Y-STR male lineage DNA testing includes analysis for 2 males. More test participants can be added if needed however.
Candidates for a Y-STR test include brothers, paternal cousins, grandfather/grandson, uncle/nephew and more, as long as all relationships are on the father’s side and through an unbroken male line. It is important to note that while the test will identify whether or not the test participants are related through the male line, it does not determine the exact relationship.
Why Risk Using Your Own Q-tips® – We Overnight A Sterile Collection Kit To You For Free
Our Y-STR test package comes 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. 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 a DNA collection kit containing sterile buccal swabs to you at no charge. We even ship the kit to you via FREE UPS overnight so you have your sterile medical swabs as ready for use the next day.
At PaternityUSA.com you can purchase the best quality DNA tests in the industry from our world renowned lab at the cheapest prices. Our lab is the most trusted name in DNA testing in the USA and the world. Top-notch geneticists conduct and oversee all of our DNA tests using proven scientific methods and state of the art equipment in our AABB accredited laboratory.

PaternityUSA is here to help you find the answers you seek.
Participants In Different Cities Or States
It isn’t uncommon for test participants to live too far apart to get together and do the Y-STR test 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 via overnight UPS. If you purchase a 2 day return mailer for only $5.00, we apply it for all addresses on your order. We link the collection kits using reference numbers and bar codes before shiping. Then, when the samples are received back in lab, they are matched to your case through those bar codes and reference numbers.
Testing Process And DNA Sample Collection
The Y-STR male lineage DNA testing process is very simple. DNA sampling is done through a cheek swab, which is also called a buccal, swab. The swab is painlessly rubbed against the inside of the cheek to collect skin cells from the inside of the mouth. All of our tests are processed 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. The test results of your Y-STR test will be emailed in 3-5 business days. If purchased, hard copy results are mailed to the billing address unless otherwise noted.
We ship our collection kits with free UPS overnight delivery Monday through Friday to physical addresses within the contiguous USA. Orders received and processed by 2:00 PM EST are shipped the same business day. Orders received after that time will be shipped the following business day.
We Offer Informational, Legally Binding and Immigration Y-STR Male Lineage DNA Testing
Our informational Y-STR test can provide you with peace of mind of whether or not two tested males are from an unbroken paternal lineage. For Y-STR DNA admissible in a court of law or other domestic agency, purchase our AABB accredited legal Y-STR DNA test. Also, our legal Y-STR DNA tests may be 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 any other type case where the identity of the tested parties must be proven by an AABB accredited DNA test. If your DNA test is for immigration purposes, the USCIS/ICE & Dept. Of Homeland security may require AABB accredited DNA evidence of the biological relationship. If so, then please order our AABB accredited DNA test for immigration purposes.
Other Types Of DNA Tests And Samples
A Y-STR male lineage test is only done between two males; as the Y-chromosome is only passed to males by their father. If two males are not available to take part in a Y-STR male lineage DNA test, we do have other testing options for you and your family. A paternity or maternity test is always conclusive. A grandparent test is conducted using one or both of the alleged parent’s biological parents. A siblingship, or sibship, test is a test done with another child who may share the same parent(s). If the alleged parent has a full brother or sister, an avuncular aunt/uncle DNA test is another option. Additionally, an mtDNA mitochondrial test conclusively determines whether or not the test participants are from the same female lineage and can be done with either gender.
The most common collection method is through a cheek swab. However, we understand at times a test participant is not able to submit a swab; such as may be the case where a family member may be deceased, incarcerated or otherwise unavailable. For these cases, 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.
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!!
