Affordable DNA Testing
Our testing laboratory is AABB accredited. This means our lab is a certified and approved DNA paternity facility. Upgrading constantly due to the continual improvements in DNA technology allows us to offer unparalleled assistance in helping you to overcoming the many of the challenges families face regarding questions about biological relationships. We have a network of over 3,500 DNA collection centers throughout the USA. We most likely have one near your home, or office. Deciding you need DNA testing may be deeply personal, due to immigration requirements, or for legal reasons you may need evidence to prove or disprove a biological relationship in the court. No matter what your situation, we are here to help you on your personal journey.
DNA testing is the perfect way to prove the genetic relationship between a father or mother and a child(ren). We understand that there are times when the father or mother is not available, or choose to not participate. In those cases, we will work with you to set up a sibling, grandparent, or an aunt – uncle test. Have discovered a possible relative from an ancestry type test? We specialize in legal and non-legal analyses to confirm or deny the possibilities, and will provide you with the truth. All legal testing is performed in our AABB accredited partner laboratory.
With Journey Genetic Testing, we guarantee the best at-home paternity test with 100% accuracy. We can send a DNA collection kit to your home, another address if you wish to be discreet. Follow the step-by-step instructions and send your swabs to the laboratory where our experts will complete the analysis. The results are provided to you in 1-2 days. We do not provide any information on your case, or DNA, to anyone or else, or any company or private or government database. We protect your privacy.
You will no doubt find a variety of companies offering cheap DNA tests, but in most cases your samples will be sent outside the USA. This may produce not only poor quality results, or wrong results.

To obtain accreditation, a DNA relationship lab must pass a very detailed inspection and review of their lab protocols and DNA testing processes to make certain that all analysis of samples is performed properly and accurately. After accreditation is obtained, a DNA lab must also participate in proficiency testing and undergo an annual inspection. We insist that our lab exceed the standards required by the AABB (formally American Association of Blood Banks) when examining specimens on every one of our DNA tests. Our lab has received a perfect score on all inspections in the last 10 years by the AABB, NYSDOH, and CAP, as well as other agencies. Our laboratory is the only lab to receive a special commendation from the AABB for our proprietary Dual Process and is the only laboratory in the world to employ these processes and standards.
Every one of us inherits our DNA from our mother’s egg (50% is maternal chromosome inheritance) and our father’s sperm (50% is paternal chromosome inheritance) which means half your DNA profile comes from your mother and half from your father. For each chromosome pair, known as “locus”, plural “loci”, there is a unique DNA sequence in each of your chromosomes.
A DNA test to determine paternity/maternity is done through the identification of these unique DNA sequences for multiple loci in the mother, child, and father (or siblings, grandparent and grandchild, aunt/uncle and possible niece/nephew). In order for a mother and/or father to be the biological parents of the child (of any age), then the two DNA sequences at each locus in the child’s chromosomes must match with the suspected parent(s) since that DNA is inherited from each parent. When we examine these DNA sequences, paternity and other family relationships can be conclusively confirmed or eliminated.
A home DNA test kit allows you to collect DNA specimens in the privacy of your home. The results are the same as a “legal” DNA test, however the results may not be able to be used in court since there is no objective verification of these identity of those participating by someone not related to those testing. We also provide legal DNA testing.
A Journey home DNA test kit will have detailed collection instructions making the process easy and simple. In our kits we give you 4 swabs for each person who is participating. The swabs are rubbed on the the inner cheek and gums, two for each side of the mouth. The DNA that we test will be in what are called “buccal” cells that are collected on the swabs while you are rubbing them against the cheek. We do not want saliva. You then just put the DNA samples in sample collection envelopes as shown in the instruction, label the envelopes, then put the DNA collection envelopes the included prepaid envelope to be sent back to our laboratory.
Journey is committed to providing the most accurate, highest quality, DNA testing at the lowest possible price. Our listed prices include free USPS Priority (RUSH) shipping of a sterile collection kit, a prepaid return FedEx overnight return label (USA addresses), all DNA processing at our AABB accredited laboratory, and 100% accurate test results in 1-2 business days. All lab fees are included. Other options are available through our easy to use order form to allow you to customize your DNA test for you, as we understand no two cases are identical.
No! It’s very common for one of the samples to arrive before the other one(s). They will be kept secure and matched together with the case number. When all samples arrive, the testing begins. We insist your DNA samples are tested together, rather than putting one set on a tray waiting for the other sample, as this can create situations where the first sample can be compromised and affect the testing.
You can quickly and easily order an at home DNA test to be done in the privacy and comfort of your own home. We can also choose to have a legal DNA test where we can set up a professional collection at one of our 3,500+ DNA collection centers, or by having a collection kit shipped to your own doctor’s office.
We have tried to answer the most common questions about DNA testing on the webpage for each type of test, as well as more detailed FAQ’s. We are also happy to answer your questions by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or talk with one of our Genetic Consultants at 1-855-362-5224.
