Dear First-Time Customer,

I am Dr. Alexei Fedorov, Ph.D., Chief Scientific Officer at CRI Genetics, CRI Paternity’s parent company.

I have dedicated over 35 years to progressing mankind’s understanding of the human genome. This groundbreaking research includes where you come from, but also who you come from.

Enter Paternity DNA testing, or any other type of filiation test. There are many testing options on the market today, but not all tests are performed the same way. You deserve to know the differences so that you can choose the best option for your unique situation.

Whether you’re looking to find out if you’re the father of a child, discover who your biological father is, or simply want to check the paternity of your child, a CRI Genetics Paternity test can help give you answers for personal knowledge or peace of mind.

I’m going to walk you through the THREE main differences between paternity tests, then detail how CRI Genetics does things a little differently. Those three differences are:

  • Latest Technology - What will you learn?
  • Paternity Testing Costs - How much will you pay?
  • Testing Methods and Science Team - How accurate are your results?

Tip #1: Choose the Latest Technology for the Most In-Depth Results

Most Paternity DNA testing services use the same method they’ve been using since the 90’s—it’s called PCR, or Polymerase Chain Reaction. PCR uses very small quantities of DNA, which are then replicated so that there is more to work with. This sequencing process only takes around 2 hours1. Compare this with the latest Paternity testing method, known as Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS), which is not restricted to only paternity testing.

NGS technologies have a higher level of complexity because they can map entire genomes at affordable costs. PCR testing looks at 15-20 genetic markers while NGS can analyze up to a million genetic markers, sometimes more. This opens new doors to what one can learn through genetic testing, including inherited traits surrounding health, nutrition, and ancestry.

CRI Genetics utilizes Next-Generation Sequencing to help you determine your filiation, and also offers reports on ancestry, wellness, nutrition, metabolism, weight loss, allergies, and much more.

Tip #2: Choose a Paternity Test that is Accurate and Affordable

Most paternity testing services claim to deliver the same kind of accurate results. A 99.99% degree of accuracy is standard in the industry, but that should also be weighed against the cost of paternity testing services. Not all paternity tests cost the same, and hidden fees are not uncommon. So, the question is, how much do paternity tests cost?

First, keep in mind that there will be at least two people taking the test, because you want to understand or confirm filiation, in other words, how two people are related. In most cases, they test to see if one of them is the father of the other. Of course, there are plenty of other cases and scenarios too, involving grandparents, cousins, uncles, aunties, and siblings. Everyone’s situation is unique. You need a paternity testing service that takes your situation into account without breaking the bank.

A CRI Genetics Paternity test offers two kits at one low price, and you can choose to use those kits for any two people. That’s two kits regardless of the relationship at the same price without any hidden fees. That is another benefit of opting for the newer NGS technology—it may take longer to deliver your results, but it can analyze the DNA sequences between any two individuals without having to charge extra for that specific relationship.

Tip #3: Follow the Science and the Genetic Experts

Alexi and Larisa Fedorov

If tip #1 wasn’t enough to convince you, let’s take that path a step further and talk about both the technology being used AND the people behind the technology. You’ll want to look for true experts in the field of genetics.

A DNA or paternity testing service that puts a lot of money into their marketing doesn’t necessarily have your best interests at heart. You want highly qualified scientists and researchers handling your DNA. That’s a process that takes time but is well worth the wait. The matter of paternity is a HUGE question in people’s minds and can be life-changing, so make sure you prioritize quality over speed when choosing the best paternity testing company for you.

At CRI Genetics, I have dedicated my life to helping you find out the meaning behind your DNA and family history, and I won’t rest until your curiosity is satisfied. If you want your burning questions about your DNA and family history answered, look no further!

Get the Answers You Need for Ultimate Peace of Mind

Are you the biological father? Are these people your parents, your relatives? Should you even consider fighting for custody, raising and loving that child?

CRI Genetics and CRI Paternity are at the forefront of genetic research. Thanks to my extensive background in genetics, as a researcher, an internationally published scientist and an educator, I have developed some of the most advanced genotyping software ever created.

Our proprietary DNA analysis software will examine 527,414 relevant markers across your genome and will compare them to samples from alleged relative, regardless of their age and sex. By the end of your DNA analysis, I will be able to tell you with 99.99% accuracy whether you are blood-related or not.

As Aristotle once said: “Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom.”

So, what are you waiting for?

Frequently Asked Questions

A paternity test is a scientific test comparing the DNA of a child and his/her alleged relative, typically the alleged father. CRI Paternity test can determine with 99.99% accuracy whether you are the biological father or not. The same works with an alleged mother or any other family member.

CRI Paternity is a branch of CRI Genetics. Our researchers are renowned and internationally published Geneticists, Anthropologists, and Social Scientists. They’ve combined their expertise to give you a highly accurate paternity analysis. When you choose CRI Paternity DNA tests, you choose expertise and accuracy. Our results come with the guarantee of quality and peace of mind.

We hold a Clinical Laboratory Improvement Act (CLIA) certification that regulates our laboratory testing and allows us to accept human samples for diagnostic testing. In the laboratory, CLIA quality assurance involves the entire testing process: pre-analytical, analytical (testing), and post-analytical processes.

Our Chief Scientific Officer, Dr. Alexei Fedorov, Ph. D., is an acclaimed geneticist. He published over 40 scientific articles in International Science Magazines and has made it a lifetime goal to progress Mankind’s understanding of the human genome into new frontiers. The papers he has written have been cited hundreds of times.

For more information on Alexei Fedorov Ph. D., check our About Page.

Though verifying the relationship between an alleged father and child is most common, CRI Paternity can verify the relationship between ANY alleged relatives (mother, siblings, grand-parents, etc). The more family members tested, the more accurate your results. CRI Paternity DNA tests can be used regardless of the sex or the alleged relationship.

  • Names of all the persons to be tested
  • Current contact information for all parties involved
  • An email address to create your online profile
  • A valid mode of payment

Our team of specialist will compare 527,414 genetic markers between your sample and every sample you will provide us to give you COMPLETE PEACE OF MIND. You can expect your results within 6-8 weeks from your order.

Some DNA testing companies offer paternity results within less than 5 days, we offer the MOST ACCURATE results, and that needs a bit more time. With our results, no more guessing. You will be sure of your filiation. Or non-filiation.

CRI Paternity collects the samples via cheek swabs.

You will receive 2 buccal swabs per person tested. Gently rub 1 swab on the inside of your cheek to gather cells (15-20 seconds), detach its tip into the matching vial before repeating the operation with your other cheek. Then enclose both vials in the matching sample collection bag (make sure all the barcodes match).

Are Buccal Swabs As Accurate As Blood Samples?

Buccal swabs and blood samples provide results with the same degree of accuracy. We chose buccal swabs for our Paternity DNA tests because they are the easiest and less invasive way to collect your DNA.

Once your results are ready, we will send you an email asking you to log in your online portal. You can also check the status of your analysis anytime you want.

DNA paternity testing is considered a non-medical test. Thus, it is usually not covered by health insurance plans, but you can always try contacting your insurance provider to find out.
