Aunt DNA testing

Aunt DNA tests are often needed when the alleged father or mother is deceased or unwilling to take part in the testing and/or the aunt of the child would like to establish their biological relationship to the child.

Our aunt DNA testing determines the statistical probability that a person is the aunt of a child. This type of DNA test is known as avuncular DNA testing.

When trying to determine an avuncular relationship the most conclusive method, if at all possible, is to test the parent of the child in question. In cases where the parent of the child is not available to provide a DNA sample, an avuncular DNA test can be carried out to determine the probability of the relationship.

Avuncular DNA tests are different from a paternity test which will always provide a conclusive result. When processing an avuncular DNA test, the laboratory will establish the DNA profile of the alleged relative and the child. An avuncular index is calculated using these DNA profiles. 

How we do our DNA testing

We use state-of-the-art DNA technology to ensure the reliability and accuracy of our genetic testing. Our accredited laboratory also analyses up to 45 DNA markers: double the industry standard for DNA testing.

An Aunt DNA Test requires mouth swabs to be rubbed quickly and painlessly on the inside of the cheek, to collect cheek cell DNA for testing.

The test looks at up to 45 DNA markers, analysing the child’s DNA and comparing it to the potential aunt’s DNA, to determine whether a biological relationship exists

Your test kit will be sent directly to your preferred address in discreet, plain packaging, for full confidentiality.

What is the difference between the standard and the enhanced test?

Our standard aunt test is already industry-leading, as it analyses 25 DNA markers (the industry standard only analyses 16-21 markers).

What makes AlphaBiolabs unique is that we can also analyse up to 45 DNA markers. This allows more genetic material to be analysed, which strengthens the result and provides additional reassurance.

This is ideal for customers who want the most powerful DNA test available. 

It is also particularly useful in tests of a more complex nature, such as an aunt test, where the chance of obtaining a conclusive result will always be lower than the more straightforward paternity or maternity tests.  This is because the DNA hasn’t been directly inherited. The enhanced test will increase the chance of obtaining a conclusive result.

Why is our aunt testing different?


We understand that you have ordered a DNA test to get an answer. However, not all tests are conclusive, and therefore you may not get the decisive answer you are looking for.

It is the testing industry’s best kept secret that for most laboratories, aunt DNA testing can be up to 40% inconclusive. In other words, four people out of every 10 do not get the result they have paid for.

Our award-winning DNA laboratory has been able to reduce the inconclusive rate down to 28%.

This is a better outcome but is still not acceptable to us. That’s why AlphaBiolabs has launched a guaranteed result or your money back promise. We will refund the price of your test, guaranteed, if you use our service and don’t get a conclusive result.

Now you can find the answers you need for just €229, with results available in 2-3 days.
