Who could benefit from a DNA maternity test?
In the case of adopted children, many grow up wanting to find their biological or “birth” parents and a DNA maternity test can be the final step in locating an absent mother. GTLDNA offers a simple to use, at-home-test, providing peace of mind to anyone with doubt or questions over their parentage. The same would also apply to parents wishing to locate a child they had put up for adoption.

Maternity test results
Maternity testing is a highly accurate way of determining whether the tested mother is the biological mother of the child tested. If the tested mother is the biological mother, the test results will show what is known as a “probability of maternity”. The probability of maternity will be of 99.99% if the other tested is the biological mother. If the tested mother is not the biological mother, the results will show a probability of maternity of 0%. Your results will show the 21 genetic marker profile for all individuals tested.
