Parabon Affinity

DNA Testing Service

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

Traditional DNA tests haven't changed in decades. They're fine for confirming close relationships, but are sometimes inconclusive for siblings and even less reliable for more distant relationships.

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.

For example, whereas a typical DNA sibling test comes with disclaimers about the 10–20% likelihood of inconclusive results for siblings, Affinity can make such determinations perfectly, 100% of the time.

Affinity is the ideal test to help confirm a suspected relationship or reconstruct a family tree because exact hypotheses of relationships are not required: Affinity can predict the most likely relationship for any given pair of subjects.

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.

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