Various types of DNA testing are offered at IDENTIGENE. Most, if not all, our tests are meant to help discover the truth behind lingering relationship questions. Because DNA is scientific in nature, many of our reports have language and information in them that aren’t always easy to understand.
One of the most common questions we get when explaining results to customers is, “What does not excluded mean?” This phrase can be one of a few phrases that someone may see in the conclusion portion of their DNA Paternity Report.
Not excluded means that the person who was tested cannot be excluded as the biological father of a child. When this appears on a report it will also show a probability of paternity of 99% or higher. In these cases, we do consider the man tested to be the biological father of the child.
