Most of the paternity tests that we researched offer very similar services for a comparable price. The base price for a paternity test from DNA Diagnostics Center (DDC) is almost four times as much as our top choice for paternity testing, Paternity Depot, but this company can get you results in just two to five days. This company will also work to lower its price based on your situation and the kind of test you need.
Like the other companies we researched, this company advertises accuracy exceeding 99 percent in its paternity tests. This is great if you’re simply taking the test out of curiosity or personal interest. If you’re looking for a legal chain of custody DNA test, this company also offers that and you can order it through the website. If you’re ordering a home-use kit, DDC sells this through its website – but to find out the price you need to call and speak with a representative. One of the reasons that we rated Paternity Depot and Genex SwabTest higher than DDC is because they advertise their prices.
DDC is accredited by more accrediting institutions than other tests we researched, and the company works with a network of laboratories so you can get your results faster. This is one of the biggest companies in paternity testing and has done work for some high-profile celebrities.
If you need to test a relationship between people who live in different states, you can order a split kit and the company will send discrete kits to both locations. Like the other paternity test companies that we researched, DDC uses swabs to collect DNA samples, which is easier and less of a hassle than filling a vial with saliva.
If you’re looking for other DNA tests for situations testing infidelity or other relationships, this company offers a wide variety of different DNA testing. However, the company makes it hard to know the prices of its tests. You have to call a representative to find out how much each test costs. We appreciated other companies we researched that listed the prices of their services directly on their websites.
If time is a factor in your paternity testing, DNA Diagnostics Center is a good option because it can return your results faster than other companies we researched.
