Examples include cases of an adopted child attempting to reunify with his or her biological mother, potential hospital mix-ups, and in [more...]

Paternity Blood Test | Diet and Health Tips & Products Reviews

Today, the most accurate tests (99.99%) to determine the paternity of a child are made through DNA. Collecting DNA sample is done two ways: Buccal swab (swabbing the inside of the cheek) and blood samples. Known as PCR (polymerase chain reaction), the procedure is used in comparing samples of the childís DNA with that of the alleged father. Since the childís DNA is a fairly equal combination of DNA of his parents, excluding the DNA of the mother gives us a genetic profile of the biological father. However, before science knew how to isolate DNA, blood samples were the standard in a variety [more...]
