Our at-home paternity test kits are used to either confirm or exclude a biological relationship between an alleged father and a child. A simple mouth swab, from the child and parent in question, is all that is needed for our lab to determine whether a man is genetically related to the child. If you want to know if you are the mother of a child, you’ll need our maternity DNA test.

Our home paternity DNA test kits are available to buy online for delivery anywhere in Australia. Simply return your DNA samples in the included reply paid envelope and you’ll receive your results within 5 days of us receiving your completed collection kit.

The results of an at-home paternity DNA test cannot be used for legal purposes, because the identities of the people taking part in the DNA test have not been confirmed by an independent person. The results provided from the test are therefore for your peace of mind and personal knowledge only. If you require the results of a paternity test for legal purposes – you’ll need our Legally Admissible Paternity Test.

You don’t need a referral from your doctor to undertake a paternity test.

Our at home paternity tests are priced from $195 with Zip payment plans available to make it more affordable.

How Does it Work?

Paternity tests work by comparing the DNA profile of the child to that of the potential dad. As children inherit 50% of their DNA from each parent, we can compare the two participants’ DNA profiles to see how likely it is that the child inherited their DNA from the father in question.

At Identilab, we look at 23 DNA markers (as well as 2 markers that tell us the sex of the person) to provide Australia’s most reliable paternity test results. All paternity testing is carried out in our NATA-accredited Australian testing laboratory by scientists with over 45 years of combined experience in forensic & human identification sciences.

This at-home paternity DNA test kit includes testing for the known mother, the alleged father, and one child (additional children can be tested for $165 each).

DNA Testing Father & Child Only

We highly recommend including samples from both parents to ensure you are getting the most reliable results, but paternity testing can be performed with the father only.

There are 3 easy steps to
find out if you are the
father of a child:

“I cannot thank you enough. My life long search for my biological father is now complete thanks to one of your tests. The speed in which the results came through was amazing and saved us from an agonising wait, and the team member I spoke to on the phone was professional and friendly. I would highly recommend your services to anyone else in a similar situation.”
