 Do-it-yourself DNA Test Kits Available Generally in the UK
Anglia DNA Services has made available DIY DNA testing kits that will allow families to establish paternity without having to spend years in courts.

This means that anyone aged over 16 can establish paternity without having to seek legal recourse. However critics are up in arms saying these kits will harm children who would receive potentially alarming news without being counseled.

"These DIY kits, inevitably, will cause enormous effect on those involved. There is an urgent need for new regulation to reflect this development because it has happened quite out of the blue," said Norman Lamb, the Liberal Democrats' health spokesman.

The DNA kits cost £29.99 plus a £129 lab fee and results will be out in five days. If consumers want results in 24 hours, the fee rises to 329 pounds.

DNA Paternity testing is an important tool available to confirm biological relationships and basically find out the truth about who is really the father (or mother) of a child. As with many other products and tests, when used correctly, DNA testing provides help to find out the truth and move on in life. Access to the test should therefore not be restricted by having to go through lengthy or expensive legal procedures.
