Kinship testing (Paternity, Maternity, Sibling, Immigration)

The Forensic Institute provide a comprehensive DNA kinship testing service for the whole of Scotland, and interpretation of results for other jurisdictions where visits are not possible.

Kinship testing can establish (to a very high degree of probability) whether, and how, two or more people are related. The Forensic Institute has extensive experience of DNA profiling in criminal cases and this now extends to profiling for the purposes of paternity and other kinship testing. Our reports can be used for court purposes.

In Scotland, see this page for further information on procedure and cost.

For jurisdictions outside Scotland, we can provide explanation and interpretation of laboratory results and advice on testing regimes.

To discuss the process or what the tests can tell, contact us for confidential information.
