Y Chromosome Testing

A Y Chromosome Test (Y-STR Test) is used to determine if males share the same paternal lineage. This test is highly accurate and will give a clear yes or no answer. The cost of the Y STR test is XX.

The Y Chromosome is inherited and passed on from father to son. It has a relatively infrequent mutation rate and remains unchanged from generation to generation.  If a direct male line can be traced, all males in that direct male lineage will have identical Y chromosome patterns (if they are truly blood relatives). Important to note that only males can do a Y chromosome test. Females do not have Y chromosomes.

Why Would I Need a Y Chromosome Test?

  • In cases where paternity is in question and the alleged father is not available for a paternity test, a Y chromsome test between the alleged father's child and another paternal Male relative can solve the issue.
  •  A Y chromosome test between male relatives can help confirm biological relationships as male blood relatives from the same paternal line will have a common Y chromosome pattern. 
  • In Immigration cases, one can use the Y Chromosome test to prove a biological relationship between males. A DNA test can help hasten immigration procedures under some circumstances.
  • In adoption cases, children grow up wanting to find their biological or “birth” families can use a Y test to confirm their relationship to their suspected biological father.
