What will the thatDNAcompany® paternity test report say?

Question:

What will the thatDNAcompany® paternity test report say?

Our answer:

The original DNA test report is uploaded as a .pdf to a secure web-link which is provided to the person who ordered the test. The reports are in a standardised format, which complies with relevant legislation* and either excludes the alleged father or provides evidence that he is indeed the tested child’s biological parent.

The paternity test results will say whether the alleged father IS EXCLUDED or IS NOT EXCLUDED as the biological father of the tested child.

  • IS EXCLUDED: This means that the tested father cannot be the biological father of the tested child because they do not share enough DNA to confirm the biological relationship tested.
  • IS NOT EXCLUDED: This means that the tested father is likely to be the biological father because testing determined that he and the tested child do share a biological parent/child relationship with a high degree of probability.

An inclusion paternity test result i.e. tested father is the father will include:

  • A Probability of Paternity value (%)
  • A Likihood Index value

We do not issue the original data (DNA profiles), since interpretation of these data is highly complex and requires a trained operative.
