It intends to study the existence of a relationship of kinship between two people and is based on the study of the genetic material.
Each individual inherits half the DNA of the mother and the other half of the father, the paternity test checks the parity analysis in 15 genetic markers. That is, each individual has two copies of each of these markers, one from the mother and the other from the father. It is through the analysis of these copies, present in the markers of the mother, the son and the supposed father, that it is possible to gauge if this is really the biological father of the child.
The paternity test carried out at GenoMed is recommended by the Spanish and Portuguese Language Group of the International Society of Forensic Genetics (GHEP-ISFG), of which it is a member and regularly participates in the external quality assessment programs organized by it.
This paternity test has legal validity, since the identity of the interveners is fully guaranteed, as well as the chain of custody of the samples, so the results obtained can be used in court in the context of a judicial process. The tests carried out by GenoMed are carried out with the utmost rigor and guarantee the maximum discretion and confidentiality.
