Mommy Match – DNA Paternity Testing – What is it?

May 18, 2012

Mommy Match is a DNA based verification program designed to provide peace of mind to families with newborns. Using advanced DNA testing methods, Mommy Match can rapidly and conclusively verify maternity and paternity of newborns, providing peace of mind that there was not a tragic baby switch at the hospital.

                                          

While “switched at birth” is a popular plot device in novels, movies and television shows, the true rate is difficult to estimate because most cases are never discovered. It has been suggested that the incidence of baby switching would occur more in hospitals where babies are separated from their mother for short intervals. Mommy Match is another application of DNA for solving complex age old problems and concerns.

Unlike older Methods, a DNA paternity test can be conducted on individuals at any age, including newborns. Samples can be collected at the time of delivery using umbilical cord blood or the sample can be collected after the birthing process, using buccal swabs.

Results will be available in approximately 5-7 business days after receipt at the lab.
