Dynacare offers paternity and kinship DNA tests for personal (non-legal), legal and immigration purposes. Administered by our Orchid PRO-DNA divison, these tests are accurate, confidential and delivered in a timely and sensitive manner.
Using the latest DNA technologies, we offer four kinds of tests to determine whether or not a tested individual is the biological father of a child:
Kinship Tests for Immigration
- Tests for personal fact-verification, which involve taking buccal swab samples at home. Results from this type are not intended for use in court or other legal proceedings.
- Tests for legal purposes with the intention of using the results in court or other legal proceedings, require a chain of customdy of the samples which must be collected from an approved collection site.
- Non-Invasive Prenatal Paternity Test. This test analyzes cell‐free DNA from the fetus which is present in the mother’s blood. The genetic profile of the baby is then compared to the alleged father’s genetic profile.
- Post-mortem test which involve analyzing samples from known living relatives of the deceased alleged father or from a biological sample of the deceased. Post-mortem testing is only offered as legal tests.
Dynacare offers DNA testing to provide proof of biological relationships for immigration purposes. Working with Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada and Canadian embassies, we collect samples, through buccal swabs, from the participants in Canada and abroad. We also ensure the samples are sent promptly and securely to our lab facilities in Canada.

Paternity testing provides scientific evidence
of whether a man can be a child's biological father. Paternity is determined by comparing the child's DNA with the DNA profile of the alleged father.
