Can you do a DNA test with a toothbrush?
Can you do a DNA test with a hair?
We can test samples that may contain the DNA of the person that you don’t want to know you are testing or who is missing or not willing to test with DNA left behind of the person.
DNA testing can be performed with a toothbrush, hair, ear wax, condom, nail clippings, dental floss and more. These samples are called unusual samples. This test is performed in two (2) parts. First, the unusual sample and then the actual DNA test to determine paternity or any other family relationship testing.
We will first have to test the unusual sample you obtained from the person to make sure it contains sufficient DNA markers in order to perform the actual test needed. Without sufficient DNA markers, the test cannot be performed.
We will need a minimum of 16 markers for the unusual sample to work and be tested against the known sample collected at our office or mouth swabs you collected on your own or you may bring another unusual sample for each person.
