As experts in the world of DNA testing, our team at Endeavor DNA is often approached to conduct paternity DNA testing. However, we’re also often finding ourselves debunking several myths created about the testing process. Because we’re committed to providing our customers the highest level of service, we’re taking this opportunity to set the record straight on a few of the most common myths we hear.
You must wait until the baby is born to complete testing
Among the questions, timing tends to be the most frequently inquired question. With the belief that one must wait until after the baby is born, we’d like to let you know this is not true! Sure, it is far more common to test a born child, but testing while pregnant is highly possible. Although prenatal DNA testing is far different from traditional testing methods, it is non-invasive and incredibly accurate!
People will find out if I had a paternity test completed
The top priority for any laboratory, no matter what the nature, should be confidentiality. Working with Endeavor DNA, you can rest well, knowing that your consultation, tests, and the results are 100% confidential. Once complete, your results are sent via email to the address provided by you. We can send them by mail if preferred, but emailed to an account that only you have access to, ensures direct and private communications.
Waiting for results takes too long
With ever-progressing advances in technology, the turnaround time for results is faster than ever before. On average, Endeavor completes the testing process within 2 business days, but sometimes it can take up to 5 business days. We accommodate rush order options for those who need results in less than the standard timeframe.
The father in question must be present to test
Though it’s easier to collect a DNA sample directly, a father does not have to be present. Grandparentage DNA testing is also available, which means having access to the potential father’s parents can get the job done with complete accuracy.
All labs are the same, so the cheapest test works just fine
DNA testing, especially within court cases, are held to strict standards. Due to the nature of the testing, the legalities that often follow require results from accredited facilities. Although kits bought at the drug store may seem reliable, they are not dependable or creditable.
From grandparentage to prenatal paternity DNA testing, you can rest well knowing that Endeavor DNA provides accurate and fast results. For a free, no-obligation consultation on paternity DNA testing, contact us today by calling (888) 432-3855.
