What is paternity testing?
Paternity testing can determine whether or not a particular man is the biological father of a particular child. This procedure involves collecting and examining the DNA of a small sample of bodily fluid or tissue from a child and the potential father. Testing is done by means of cheek (buccal) swabs. Buccal swab kits can be requested from our laboratory or go to one of the clicks clinics we work with. There is little to no risk involved in taking a buccal swab.
How much will everything cost me?
The total cost of the test is R945 per person (R1890 to test an alleged father and child). There are no hidden costs. This INCLUDES VAT and the courier costs of sending buccal swabs to your home or office and collecting them from you again once your samples are ready.
When is payment due?
50% of payment is required before sending you the kit. As soon as we receive the samples and start with the analysis we send you an invoice with the amount due. Once your results are ready, they will be made available to you upon receipt of payment.
