You are a mother and a little voice is asking, ‘What if Eric is not the dad and it’s really Michael? or ‘What if I’m allowing my child to bond with a man who isn’t really his father?’
Or maybe you are a father, harboring a doubt that that you have been told the truth. Your friends tell you rumors about your girlfriend’s infidelity or you remember being ‘broken up’ around the time the baby was conceived.
Guess what? If you want peace of mind, it’s time for an IDENTIGENE DNA paternity test.
How? It’s the easiest paternity test out there! First, head to your nearest major drugstore. IDENTIGENE can be found at retailers including CVS, Rite Aid and Walmart.
How it Works
1. Now that you have the kit: Open it! There are three sets of swabs, an order form, envelopes for the DNA samples and instructions.
2. Next, read the instructions and fill out the order form and envelopes-this makes the next steps much easier! You can register and pay for your test online or you’ll need to fill out the order form and include your method of payment for the lab fee.
3. You are ready to grab DNA samples! Take each swab and gently but thoroughly rub each of the three swabs on the inside of the possible father’s cheek and place in the envelope labeled with the correct name. Now, swab the child and place the swabs in his/her envelope. If the mother is present, swab her too; if not, don’t worry! Our laboratory will still be able to provide paternity answers. Adding ‘Mom’ gives us more DNA to examine and it can act as a “DNA insurance policy” if testing possible father with the child yield inconclusive results.
4. Now, put all the forms and envelopes into the postage-paid envelope and drop it into the mail. If you can’t wait for snail mail, feel free to use a priority mail service to overnight the envelope to us for quicker shipping.
That’s it! Painless! Your results will be ready two (2) business days after the samples arrive at our lab in Cincinnati. If you prefer, you can select 1-day or same-day results for an additional fee.
