Y Chromosome DNA Test

The Y chromosome, a determining factor of the male sex, is a useful tool to track paternal lineage. This test requires a DNA sample from a child to be compared to an alleged grand-father, great-grandfather, or adult male in the same genealogical line of relation. It is a convenient way to confirm paternity when the alleged father is unavailable. Our test only requires a simple cheek swab which can be collected with our easy to use, at-home, collection kit. Should you be unable to collect a swab from any of the parties involved, you may choose to submit an alternative forensic sample at an additional charge. All aspects of private DNA diagnostic tests are kept completely confidential.

*This test is for personal use and is not admissible in court. Please see our ‘Legal DNA Test’ for court use. 

If you would like to collect samples without waiting for the kit to arrive, visit our instruction page for cheek swabs and hair samples collection.


$199 (for 2 individuals, +$99 for each additional individual)

*Additional fees for alternative samples

*All prices are subject to HST for Canadian residents.


Results are completed in 5 business days.  An expedited, 3 business day service, is available for an additional $50 charge (due when samples are received.)  We test 16 STR markers presented with numeric values and provide a combined relatedness index and probability of percent relatedness on your report. You may choose to receive results by any number of methods including e-mail, mail, and by phone. We always give you the option of password protecting your case!
