DNA SIBLING TEST
Clear answer to biological relationships
DNA Sibling test
A DNA sibling test can verify whether two individual are full or half siblings or unrelated.

When the parental/maternal DNA is not available, a DNA sibling test can determine if a sharing biological relationship exists. However, for more accurate results participation of one common parent, uncle or aunt is recommended.
To determine the biological relation, 17 - 24 genetic markers are analyzed. 

For more information, advice or orders please contact DNAlgy.

The best way to determine whether two or more persons are half-siblings, full-siblings or non-related persons, is by direct testing of their parents if available (paternity/maternity test). If not, then persons that are recommended to participate (apart from the alleged siblings) are:

a) a parent (e.g. if the question is whether two persons have the same father*, then it is strongly recommended that their mother is also tested)
b) grandparents (e.g. if the question is whether two persons have the same father*, then it is strongly recommended that one or both parents of the father are also tested)
c) more siblings (e.g. if the question is whether two persons have the same father*, then it is strongly recommended that more siblings that share the same father* are also tested)

*the same is valid if the mother is under question

Alternative:
a) If the siblings to be tested are male and the question is about whether they have the same father then a Y chromosome DNA analysis can be performed, in order to test the common paternal lineage.

Alternative:
b) If the question is about whether two or more siblings have the same mother, then a mtDNA analysis can be performed in order to test the common maternal lineage. A mtDNA analysis is recommended only if the nuclear DNA is not enough or of bad quality.

Instructions
INSTRUCTIONS FOR BUCCAL CELL COLLECTION: DNALOGY-KIT
39352129

In the course of sampling, DNAlogy offers you free-of charge the DNAlogy-kit including the sterilized cotton swab, sampling instructions and a consent/order form for the applicant.
The aim of sampling is to collect as many cheek cells as possible and to transfer them to the sterilized cotton swab, which is going to protect DNA until its transfer to our laboratory.
Attention: Avoid any contact with the cotton tip end of the swabs.
Do not eat, drink or smoke for at least 30 minutes before sampling.
For the sampling procedure, each individual should use 2 swabs.

Step 1
Label the collection tube of swab with the code "Sample 1" and the sampling date.

Step 2
Carefully open the first collection tube by holding the red plastic handle end and carefully remove the sterile swab for buccal cell collection.

Step 3
Sampling: Holding the red plastic handle end of swab, place the cotton tip of the swab inside the cheek and rub it firmly in every direction several times (20 seconds in each cheek). Repeat steps 1-3 with the second collection tube with the code "Sample 1".

Step 4
Air dry the swabs for at least 3 hours (no less) at room temperature while keeping them protected from any source of contamination. When dry, place the swabs back in the collection tubes.

Step 5
Place the two collection tubes containing the biological material to be analyzed in the reply envelope and send it back to DNAlogy along with the completed Consent Form.
