Ease of Use
To get started with International Biosciences, you’ll first need to choose the right kit for your needs. Many different kinds of tests are offered, from animal and ancestry tests to prenatal. Some of its most popular tests are its paternity tests, which include a home paternity test, a prenatal paternity test, a legal DNA test, and an immigration DNA test. After selecting the test, you’ll be required to answer some questions meant to ensure you’re ordering the test for the right purpose and that the one you’re ordering will suit your needs. Questions include:
- How many fathers will be tested?
- Is the mother going to be tested?

After placing your order, you’ll receive the at-home kit with comprehensive instructions for collecting a DNA sample using a painless cheek swab. Before sampling, make sure that you don’t drink tea or coffee, or use tobacco products for 4 hours prior, as it may ruin the samples.
