Avuncular DNA Testing in NYC

Avuncular DNA Tests in New York City

In cases where the alleged biological father of a child is unable to be tested, NYC DNA Testing can perform what is known as an avuncular DNA test. In these tests, we examine the DNA of the child alongside the DNA of the biological brother or sister of the alleged father.

How does it work?

A child obtains half of his/her DNA from their biological mother and the other half from their biological father. These are called maternal genes and paternal genes, respectively. Since the alleged father shares DNA with his full siblings; the father’s alleged child would also share paternal genes with the full sibling of the biological father.

+ What if the alleged father is not available for testing?

When it is not possible to test an alleged father, paternity can be established indirectly (i.e. grandparents, siblings, aunts, uncles, etc).

+ How is a DNA collection performed?

A DNA collection is quick and painless. A sterile swab is rubbed on the inside of your mouth for 20-30 seconds to collect cheek cells.

+ How accurate is the test?

DNA Testing is extremely accurate. The laboratory meets or exceeds all standards established by the AABB. Results for a standard legal paternity test is guaranteed at least 99.99% probability of paternity for inclusions or 100% certainty of exclusion.


  • A very discreet company, who was thorough, fast and a pleasure to work with. Every time I called with questions, they were patient, understanding and took all the time I needed to answer all questions I had about testing.
