Parabon® Affinity
DNA Testing Service

Introducing Parabon Affinity — a new type of DNA test for relationships that gives definitive results. Every time. No excuses.

Parabon Affinity Test Kit

The Affinity Relationship Test from Parabon is a new, more accurate and more reliable type of DNA test. Using sophisticated computer algorithms and modern genomic scanning equipment that extracts vastly more information from each DNA sample than traditional tests, Affinity determines relationships conclusively and at much greater distance than traditional DNA tests — out to second cousins and beyond.

The Affinity Legal version of the test has additional chain-of-custody protocols, so test results can be used for heirship challenges or estate settlement. Parabon can also arrange for extraction of DNA from the personal effects of deceased individuals for use in Affinity Legal testing.

The Affinity Ancestry Test can determine what percentage of a person's DNA comes from each region of the world. Specific ancestry questions (e.g., does this person have any Native American genetic ancestry) can be tested with statistical rigor. Chain-of-custody is available for Affinity Ancestry testing as well.

If you have questions about kinship or ancestry that can be answered with DNA and you want conclusive answers, look no further than Affinity from Parabon. Affinity is definitive.
