How do you establish if people are related?


How do you establish if people are related?

Our answer:

Each and every one of us is unique. This uniqueness comes from our genetic code, which we have inherited equally from our biological mother and biological father. The thatDNAcompany® DNA test detects the presence of shared regions of this unique genetic code, which can in turn be used to determine if individuals are related.

We analyse your genetic code and the results are displayed as a series of coloured bands. In paternity testing, we then look at these bands from both mother and alleged father to see if every band in the child is present in the parents. If so, there is a good chance that the child and parents are biologically related.

Please be aware that the thatDNAcompany® DNA test is for personal information use only, it is not a legal DNA test. If you wish to have a legal DNA test for use in court, to change a birth certificate or another legal reason, then you will need an accredited (legal) DNA test. This is available from our sister service, For more information please visit the website, call 0191 543 6334 or e-mail
