How DNA Testing Works

Select Your Location

DNA Paternity testing is performed at the six LabXpress locations in Phoenix. No appointments or doctor’s orders are required. Walk-ins welcome. 

Arrive to the Lab

Enter the lab and check-in at the front desk. If you are receiving a legal DNA test, present a valid government issued ID. Informational tests do not require IDs. 

A lab tech will perform your test shortly.

Receive Results

Paternity test results will be emailed to the alleged father only unless a form is signed to release the results to another party. Notarized copies of the results for legal DNA tests can be picked up at our Downtown Phoenix location.  

Depending on the volume of tests being performed that day, this can take as little as 5 – 7 days. Ask for the test turn around times at the time of your visit.

Most frequently asked questions and answers about DNA Paternity Testing

DNA samples are typically collected from participating individuals using a soft swab resembling a long Q-tip.
