Within our workplace, there is one forensic expert from the field of genetics, branch of DNA analysis, appointed by the Ministry of Justice of the Slovak Republic, who performs forensic expert work in this field: Mgr. Marian Baldovič, PhD.

Not only the court, but also private individuals can request the preparation of a forensic expert opinion, and its result can be applied before a court or other state authority. However, all participants must agree to the performance of expert testing.

The collection (swab of the oral mucosa) must be performed by a forensic expert in person, so the date and place of collection must be agreed with him in advance. Outside of Bratislava region, however, collection is carried out only exceptionally.

What can these tests reveal?

A DNA test will either unequivocally rule out paternity or confirm paternity with a probability of at least 99.99% (i.e. “paternity virtually proven”).

Who is the STANDARD paternity test suitable for?

The STANDARD paternity test is suitable in cases when you want to verify or exclude the paternity of the tested man towards the child. Informed consent is not required, nor do you provide the names of the test subjects, so 100% anonymity is guaranteed. However, the origin of the samples analysed is known only to the client, i.e. the identity of the persons tested has not been verified by a forensic expert and the testimonial value of such a test in court is low. However, the laboratory test itself is done in the same way as the forensic paternity test, so the result is the same.

What does an anonymous paternity test mean?

It is a comparison of anonymous samples without identification of the tested persons. The identity of these persons is known only to the person ordering the test.

What is the difference between STANDARD and EXTRA paternity test?

The EXTRA paternity test includes, in addition to the STANDARD test, a comprehensive results report with individual DNA profiles of the tested persons and possible analyses of repeated sampling.

For whom is the LEGAL paternity test suitable?

The LEGAL paternity test is a forensic-forensic test suitable when the results of the test are to be used in court as evidence and for legal purposes or any other official acts, because the origin of the samples analysed is known, i.e. the identity of the persons tested has been verified by a forensic expert.

What samples can be used for a paternity test?

Sampling can be done using a sampling kit, which will be sent to you by post to the address you specify after you have placed your order. You will then swab the oral cavity for each person tested. If it is not possible to do such a collection, or if you do not want other people to know about the test, it is possible to use a variety of non-standard materials as a sample.

Can the quality of the biological material samples for DNA analysis affect the result of a paternity test?

No. In the event that, for example, the biological material sample has been spoiled (trapped food residues) or contaminated with other DNA (improper handling of samples), etc., and therefore a reliable and unambiguous DNA profile cannot be obtained from one person (the originator of the sample), the paternity test is not evaluated. In this case, we contact the customer to repeat the sampling or make a new order.

Can I come to the laboratory in person to collect the sample?

Ak prídete k nám do laboratória osobne, odberovú súpravu vám odovzdáme a odber vzoriek vykonáte svojpomocne. Prípadne je možné za príplatok 30 EUR požiadať o vykonanie odberu nás.

When can I come to the lab to pick up my collection kit?

If you have selected the personal collection option in your order, you can arrive at any time during opening hours.

What does the sampling kit contain?

The sampling kit contains a minimum of 2 tubes of cotton swab sticks.

Marking of sticks:

Red – mother

Green – child

Yellow - marked man

Blue – other persons

The package also includes a bubble envelope in which you put the samples and send them to our address or deliver them in person.

What should I do next after ordering the test?

If you order the test, we will send you a collection kit by post (or you can collect it from us in person) with instructions on how to take a simple oral swab or a non-standard sample. You will send us the samples for analysis and if you have not yet made the payment, you will also pay the price of the test by transfer to our account. We will then carry out the analysis, calculate the probability of paternity and send you a report with the test result either electronically by email (free of charge), in hard copy by post or you can collect it in person (in both cases for an additional fee).

Can I drink or eat before sampling?

You must not eat, drink, smoke, chew gum, use nose and throat drops or sprays, brush your teeth or use mouthwash for at least 60 minutes before the collection.

I made a mistake when entering my order details (wrong number, email).
If you have entered a wrong email or phone number, please contact us at tel. +421 948 627 273 or write to dnatest@dnatest.sk. We will correct your contact details.
When will I get the results?

We send the test result report no later than the deadline specified for each test. The time limit starts on the day following receipt of the sample and crediting of the payment for the test. For example, for a STANDARD test, receiving payment and samples on Monday means that we send a report with the result no later than Monday the following week (but usually sooner). This time can be reduced by an express surcharge of 2 working days.

I have not received the result by email or post.

If you have not received an email, please check your SPAM folder. If you didn’t find the result there either, please contact us at dnatest@dnatest.sk.
