DNA Testing

With recent advancements in scientific testing, it's becoming more commonplace for people to request DNA information. Why would you want to see your DNA? DNA testing is used today for a number of reasons including identifying human traits, infidelity testing, locating relatives, early detection of disease, and establishing paternity.

Several online companies exist today that have significantly reduced the cost of DNA testing and made the process very easy. For just a small fee, you can check the paternity of a child, look for the probability of life threatening diseases, find long lost relatives, and much more.

However, not all companies that offer DNA testing provide the same service or charge the same fees. Before you order a DNA testing kit yourself, you should consider the following important factors:

  • Purpose. Many DNA companies focus on testing for the sole purpose of identifying the mother or father of a child. If you're after health related information make sure the testing will serve that purpose.
  • Cost. DNA testing can range from $99 to $500 and up. Make sure you understand the cost and what you'll receive before you finalize your transaction.
  • Reporting. Once the DNA results come back you'll want a report easy to read. Look for a company that provides user friendly DNA results. has reviewed and ranked the best DNA testing services available today. We hope these reviews help you get the DNA tests that you're looking for!
