DNA tests to establish fatherhood at home have hit pharmacies in Britain. Despite a sales pitch, the test could not be carried out at home completely. First, a user has to collect cheek cells from the father and the child and then to send DNA samples to a lab.
After 5 days (or after one day for vip-version of the test), the lab will return 100% reliable result showing if the user is a biological father. Regular test will cost £160 and VIP-version will go for about £300.
According to scientists, DNA test kits will be in huge demand in the UK, while many ethics groups are raising deep concerns over negative implications.
