paternity tests

paternity tests

Tests designed to confirm or deny the claim that a man is the father of a particular child. When the man is not the father, this can be confirmed by normal blood-grouping tests in 97% of cases. Blood-group and tissue typing (HLA) tests cannot prove that a particular man is the father, but they can offer strong supportive evidence. Genetic fingerprinting can prove paternity beyond any doubt.
