DNA testing is now done at Cater Street Surgery.
DNA paternity testing is a complex scientific process, carried out on a simple mouth swab, which can positively identify relationships between people. Most commonly it is used to establish if a man is the true biological father of a child.
It works by detecting certain parts, or 'markers' in the DNA molecule that are known to vary greatly between unrelated people. Cellmarks tests compare the DNA at a number of these markers to determine if people are related.
Cellmark delivers a next working day DNA Relationship testing service - as standard - across a range of tests - including immigration and sibling cases.
When a mother, child and possible father are tested Cellmark's results will either show he is not the father or normally provide proof of paternity with a confidence level of 99.99% and usually greater than 99.999%.
Under the requirements of UK Data Protection laws, the service and results are confidential.
You will need to make an appointment have your samples taken by a Doctor . At that appointment a mouth swab will be rubbed gently and painlessly on the inside of your mouth to collect a sample of cheek cells.
You will also need to complete a consent form at the surgery (please remember to take 2 passport style photographs of each person being tested to the appointment) and these and the sample will then sent to Cellmark by the surgery. If you elect to use Cellmark's sampling service (an extra fee will apply).
PLEASE NOTE: APPOINTMENTS WILL NOT BE MADE IF THE DNA KIT HAS NOT ARRIVED AT THE SURGERY.
