DNA aunt testing

DNA aunt testing (also known as an avuncular test) is often needed when the alleged father or mother is deceased or unwilling to participate in the testing process and the alleged aunt of the child would like to establish their biological relationship to the child.

Our Aunt DNA Test works by comparing an individual’s DNA profile with that of an alleged aunt. Because an individual inherits half of his or her DNA from each biological parent, such a comparison reveals whether the child has inherited DNA from the alleged aunt who is being tested.

Due to the nature of the DNA Aunt Test, we recommend that the alleged aunt who has a claimed biological link to the child should be tested along with the child and their mother (or father, if the aunt is related to the child through the mother) to provide you with the most accurate result. However, the test can still be performed without a biological parent’s DNA. 

Please note that the alleged aunt must be a full sibling of the alleged mother or alleged father, and not a half-sibling.
