Order Kit

The Legal Y-STR (Paternal Lineage) DNA Test is a test to determine if 2 or more males share the same paternal lineage. The Y chromosome is passed from father to son relatively unchanged. By analyzing it we can determine if a male has a common ancestor.

This kit includes DNA testing and comparison for two males.  Additional participants for an extra fee.

It is important to note that this test ONLY WORKS on BIOLOGICAL MALES, not females, and only on males of the same paternal line. For example, testing an uncle on the mothers' side would not work.

For any DNA test to be considered Court Admissible it must be shipped to and handled only by an uninterested and unrelated 3rd party. This 3rd party will take responsibility for collecting the samples, verifying the identity of the participants, and returning the samples to our lab. This can be a lawyer, doctor, nurse, or someone with no interest in the results of the test. Detailed instructions can be seen here.

Our laboratory is fully AABB accredited and ISO certified and we test for 22 STR loci and gender ID markers to ensure the highest quality and accuracy of all DNA results.

Results will be ready in as little as 2 days after our lab has received the samples.

*We mail our testing kits in discreet unmarked envelopes and may not appear as pictured.

Please Note: Due to New York health regulations DNA samples cannot be collected and tests cannot be mailed from inside the State of New York. Click here for Details
