Our grandparents DNA test starts from £299 for testing grandmother, grandfather and 1 grandson or granddaughter. Note that this is cost for a peace of mind test. Results will be ready in just 5-7 working days from receipt of samples at our laboratory.

Order your DNA test kit

Order your grandparents test kit for £29 and pay the laboratory processing fee when you return your DNA samples for analysis. Our grandparents test laboratory processing cost is £200 and includes testing of grandmother and grandfather.

Legal Grandparent testing

If you require a grandparentage test with court admissible results, the cost is of £428. The cost includes a notarised result which can be presented in court to support evidence of an alleged relationship between the people tested. For legal testing, sampling is done using a kit and are collected by a neutral third party knows as a sampler.

The test requires the samples of both the grandmother and the grandfather. We cannot offer the test if only one grandparent is available.

What will the grandparent test results show?

The grandparentage test results will first establish the probability of relationship between grandmother and grandson or granddaughter as well as the probability of relationship between grandfather and grandson or granddaughter. Once have these two probabilities have been calculated, they go on to work out a missing person profile (technically called a "derived profile"). The derived profile is essentially a reconstruction of the missing, alleged father's DNA profile. If the derived profile matches the DNA profile of the grandchild, then the untested alleged father of is the biological father of the grandchild tested. The test is in fact also called a missing parent test as by taking the DNA of paternal grandparents, laboratories can reconstruct the profile of the their children (the missing parent).

Collecting your sample

A DNA sample is quick and easy to collect thanks to our easy-to-use and extremely user friendly home sample collection kit. The kit contains what are referred to as buccal swabs which can be used to collect your DNA samples. 2 swabs need to be used for every person tested following carefully the instructions we provide inside our kit. The kit will also contain the consent forms to be filled in by every person taking part in the test and returned to the laboratory alongside the samples.

Testing between grandfather and grandson

Although we do not offer grandparent testing with a single grandparent we can offer the test if it involves solely male participants. In such cases, we suggest a Y chromosome test. This test is extremely accurate at confirming whether the males tested share a common paternal line.

Consent is required from each person being tested before a sample can be taken. In the case if minors, individuals suffering from a mental disorder or those who are not in a position to give their own consent, a legal guardian or a person having parental responsibility for the individual must consent. Under the Human Tissue Act it is a criminal offense to take a sample from someone to test their DNA without their consent, except for medical purposes and lawful investigative purposes, for example a criminal investigation.
