Types of infidelity testing

Multiple Gender testing: Where the people involved male or female?

One type of infidelity test we offer is the multiple DNA profile gender test. What we seek to establish with this test is the sex of the DNA in the sample provided. Once you send in your sample, we can analyze it to confirm whether there is male DNA or female DNA. If the DNA of two or more people is present, this test will confirm it.

DNA profile comparison

Once we have extracted a DNA profile from one sample you sent, we can compare that profile to another DNA sample to determine whether these two samples belong to the same person or to different people.

For example, if we carry out a multiple gender test and confirm the presence of female DNA, there may be a small possibility that this sample might belong to the person requesting the test. To exclude this possibility, comparing the DNA profile found in the multiple gender test with the other DNA sample (the comparison sample) sent in can accurately exclude or confirm that they belong to the same person.

The cost of an infidelity test

Contact us for a full quote. The cost of infidelity testing depends on whether you are doing a multiple gender profile test, a DNA profile comparison or both. The type of sample you have tested and the number of samples will also alter the costs.

The DNA samples we test

Using our forensic testing expertise we are able to analyze successfully a vast range of samples. Once you have identified the sample you intend using, contact us to discuss it. Our team is specially trained to provide you with indispensable information about your chosen sample. We will tell you how likely it is that the sample will work, the costs entailed in the analysis and all the information about packaging and shipping the sample to the laboratories. Samples sent in include stains on underwear, hairs, cigarette marks and many, many more. Important to note the success rate (the chances of successful DNA extraction) for each forensic sample as well as the cost.

We suggest reading our forensic DNA testing/forensic samples page to get more information about different types of DNA samples. Note that homeDNAdirect may not accept samples not listed on our forensic samples page. We always suggest calling us to discuss the viability of your sample, packaging and shipment.

homeDNAdirect offers DNA testing services. We do not offer semen detection testing but analysis of DNA within the sample of biological material sent for analysis.

Our tests will clearly establish our findings. They will either confirm the gender identity of the DNA sample or compare samples to confirm whether or not they belong to the same person. We do no offer any comments on whether or not cheating has actually taken place.

International order

Please note that if you are ordering from a country outside South Africa you are still liable under the local laws of your country as the person ordering the test and submitting the samples. In addition, your order will be forwarded to the appropriate team handling cases in your location. We, therefore, recommend you are aware of your local laws prior to placing an order. In addition, we are currently not offering this test to clients based in the UK.

Semen Detection Test

A semen detection test is quick and simple test that will enable you to confirm the presence of semen. If you do not require a full DNA test but just want to know if a stain contains semen or not, check out our semen detection test.
