Paternity Testing

With more than 35 years of experience, Labcorp is a trusted DNA testing laboratory for paternity testing.

Since 1981, Labcorp DNA has been delivering trusted results. With more than 2 million legal DNA tests performed, scientific and legal accuracy is our highest priority as we use the latest technologies available to give you the results you can rely on.

Order or schedule a paternity/maternity test on the Labcorp DNA Identity website.

DNA tests performed for use in a court case, such as child support or immigration, require a legal chain of custody and testing in an accredited laboratory.

Chain of custody is everything that happens to a sample from collection to submission for testing. This process is followed to ensure integrity of the sample throughout the process. Once the results of the legal DNA test are provided, they may be used as evidence wherever needed. Whether they are used in a state, tribal, or federal court, or for an adoption or immigration through the Immigration and Naturalization Services (INS), the results may be viewed as valid and accurate when the chain of custody process has been followed.

Labcorp prides itself on the exacting attention it gives to your sample’s chain of custody. Visit the Labcorp DNA Identity website to learn more about the variety of legal DNA tests, including:

At-Home DNA Collection Kits

At-Home DNA collections are commonly called non-legal tests. They provide the same information as a legal DNA test, but they are not intended for use in a court of law. If you just want to know this information but do not need to use that information in a court case, you may wish to use At-Home kits.
