Adoption Testing

Adoptive families, agencies and attorneys frequently request DNA Adoption testing to provide proof of the biological relatipnship between an alleged mother and child in relinquishment and reunion cases.  In addition, with medical advancement in conception and reproductive technologies, DNA tests are often requested for biological verification of children conceived by in vitro fertilization (IVF) or carried by gestational surrogates.


How it works

A DNA adoption test is a scientific determination of whether a tested individual is or is not the biological father or mother of a child. DNA testing can be performed prior to the adoption in relinquishment and surrogacy cases, to verify the identity of the biological father and mother. DNA testing can also be performed in adoption cases to help re-unite adoptive children with each other or with their biological parents.

Orchid Cellmark recognizes that the adoption of a child is one of the single most important events in the lives of the parents and the child and understands the importance of an accurate, confidential and timely service.

No matter where the parties reside, whether in the US or in another country such as Guatemala, Orchid Cellmark facilitates the collection of painless, non-invasive cheek swabs, and the shipment of those samples to our testing laboratory.

With a routine turnaround time of 3 days from the date of receipt of the last sample, you will not have to wait a long time to get an answer.

We routinely report testing results with a probability of paternity of 99.99% or higher on inclusions and 0.00% on exclusions.

We are ready to help when you are ready to proceed.

Your Test Options

A DNA paternity test in adoption cases may be required in cases where the alleged father contests the adoption process or in a surrogacy case, when the surrogate mother is married.


A DNA maternity test in adoption cases may be required in cases to confirm the biological relationship of an adoptive child with his/her biological mother in domestic, international or gestational surrogacy cases.

Post-Adoption Reunions
If an adoptive child wishes to confirm his/her relationship with an alleged biological parent, Orchid Cellmark’s routine DNA paternity or DNA maternity test can provide the answer.
