There are many anxious parents who have just had twins. They look closely at every feature and contemplate, “Are they identical or not?” Early in the childrens’ lives it may be difficult to tell them apart, but does this really mean they are identical twins or just share very similar features?
Identical twins have exactly the same DNA profiles and a simple DNA test can put all the questions to rest. The profiles for fraternal twins are not exactly the same: instead, they indicate a full-sibling relationship. The lab fee for this test is just $159. You will simply collect a DNA sample from each child using cheek swabs and send the samples to the lab for testing.
The test usually takes five(5) days once samples are received at the lab. So if you have questions about your own twins or if you are a twin yourself and you’re not sure you’re identical to your sibling, call us at 888-404-4363 to set up a test.
