DNA Test results are often kept simple and easy to understand although of course, there must be a scientific approach to them. Any DNA test results, whichever the test, or most likely, even whichever the DNA testing company doing your test, will have give results with very similar information as that given below.

The most common method for DNA Testing is known as PCR or polymerase chain reaction. There is much to say about what PCR is but here is the main reason why this is the favored method of testing. The advantage of this method is that DNA analysts can work with very small samples of DNA and in fact this is why a simple mouth swab is sufficient for a DNA test. To be said, in the past it was quite different, different methodologies for DNA testing meant analysts needed considerable quantities of DNA samples to work with. You can access an actual sample paternity test result.

Your DNA Test result: Interpretation

Your paternity test DNA results might be inconclusive: this rarely happens especially with paternity DNA testing. With relationship tests, depending on who submits samples and the closeness of the relationship between people, there is a higher chance. The DNA testing company in this case cannot confirm nor exclude the alleged relationship between the people tested. Most common causes of inconclusive results also can include:

•    The DNA samples submitted have been wrongly collected and stored
•    The DNA samples may be mixed with other peoples DNA

Inclusion: The inclusion is often made reference to in paternity testing. In this case, an inclusion of paternity means that the probability of paternity is high enough to signify that the tested alleged dad is the biological father of the child or children tested.

Exclusion: An exclusion means that the possibility of a biological relationship is excluded; again this term is commonly referred to in the DNA test result to a paternity test. This essentially means that the man tested is not the biological father of the child in question.

in cases where there are issues, for example with inconclusive results, there are methods which can be recommended to you by the DNA testing company; the DNA test results will in most cases give you conclusive results.
