DNA testing can help you with different purposes, including relationship identification between two or more individuals. Similarly, Sibling DNA testing helps establish the genetic (biological) relationship between two siblings.
Sibling DNA Testing determines whether the individuals are full siblings, half-siblings, or not related as siblings. If the mother’s identity is known in Sibling DNA Testing, it is strongly recommended to include her in the test. Including the mother in the Sibling-ship DNA Test will give you a better index and probability.
Types of Sibling DNA Testing
There are cases when it’s not clear if two siblings share the same biological parents or not? In such a case, a Sibling-ship DNA test can come to aid. Depending upon the case where either of the biological parent’s identity is known or unknown, you can get the following types of Sibling-ship DNA Tests in India, or anywhere else, for that matter.
- Full Sibling DNA Testing: Full Sibling Ship DNA test is performed when two siblings share one biological parent and want to know if they share the other parent as well or not.
- Half Sibling DNA Testing: A Half Sibling Ship DNA test is performed when two alleged siblings believe they only share one biological parent, but it’s not clear if it’s the father or the mother.
Sample Collection for a Sibling-Ship DNA Test
Sibling-ship DNA Test samples are collected by using buccal swabs. We also provide home collection kits, which you can order online and take your DNA sample yourself.
Swabs are rubbed inside the mouth on the cheek walls for around a minute and then left to dry under normal room conditions before packing it into a tamper-proof envelope. The Sibling Ship DNA Test kit also contains instructions and a consent form. You need to fill in the consent forms before sending the samples to our testing facility.
As soon as we have received the sample at our testing facility, we start the sample analysis, and you get the results of your Sibling Ship DNA test in 4-5 working days.
Our customer service representatives guide you through the entire process, right from sample collection to report delivery.
Sibling DNA Testing & Report
Sibling Ship DNA Test relies on a statistical probability. Unlike paternity tests, sibling-ship DNA tests do not need to provide genetic profiles that match all genetic markers. Instead, the report of a Sibling-Ship DNA Test is given in ‘Siblingship Index’. A Siblingship Index of less than 1 means the tested parties are not related, while a Siblingship Index of more than 1 means they are biologically related siblings.
