What samples are needed for a twin test?
A safe and painless swab of the oral mucosa with a cotton swab is all that we need to conduct this Twin Test. This gives us enough cell material for the analysis and an accurate DNA report.
We distinguish between two different kind of twins
Identical twins are the result of the fertilization of one egg by a sperm. The fertilized egg divides and creates two persons with the same DNA and sex.
Dizygotic twins are formed when two egg cells are fertilized by two sperm cells. The twins do not share DNA. Genetically speaking, they are “normal” siblings.

How long does it take to get the results?
It may take us up to 1 week or more to establish a result.
