Aunt-Uncle DNA Test

Avuncular DNA testing is carried out between an uncle/aunt and an alleged niece or nephew. Avuncular testing begins from just $349  for the testing of two people. Our DNA test results will be ready in just 5-7 working days. The lab cannot perform this test if the aunt / uncle is NOT a full sibling to the alleged father in question.

We strongly suggest including the sample of a known parent to provide stronger results.

Why do an avuncular test?

An avuncular test is done instead of a paternity test when a person’s alleged father is either deceased or unavailable for testing.  An avuncular test might not be as conclusive as a DNA paternity test and where possible we recommend carrying out an alleged father to child DNA test.

Using a highly advanced technique for replication and amplification of DNA known as polymerase chain reaction or PCR scientists can determine what is known as the avuncular index. If the avuncular indexes between two people are similar enough between two people, this would indicate a biological relationship.

The test relies on statistical probability to conclude whether the aunt or uncle tested are the biological aunt and uncle of their niece or nephew. The addition of the mother’s sample will help strengthen the result by eliminating her share of the genetic area to be analysed.
