The 5 Best Places for Paternity Tests in Dubai

Paternity tests are essential especially when it comes to legal proceedings such as gaining legal rights to child support, child custody, social security benefits, and inheritance.

Thankfully, Dubai has a lot of clinics and laboratories that offer paternity tests.

So, we scoured the city to give you the best places for paternity tests in Dubai. We also included the factors we considered in choosing.

Lastly, we provided answers to some frequently asked questions about paternity tests in Dubai.

How much do paternity tests in Dubai cost?

The cost of taking a paternity test depends on the clinic’s and lab’s fees, and other services that may be recommended to be done along with this for maximum accuracy.

To give you a starting point, a paternity test can cost around AED400 to AED2000.

The Best Places for a Paternity Test in Dubai

Before we get right into our top picks for the best places for a paternity test in Dubai, here are the factors we considered for our entries on this list:

Credibility – First and foremost, we need to consider the clinic’s and the doctor’s affiliations. This gives us a sense of the standards they follow.
Service Quality – We also considered the level of service the staff gives because this could be an anxious time for the client, and anything to make them feel calm is greatly appreciated.
Background and Experience – It was also crucial for us to consider the clinic’s and team’s educational history and former career experience because this will give us a sense of how they work.
Turnaround Time – Lastly, we considered how short or long it takes for the clinics and labs to process the test and give the results to its patients.

1. OCP Medical Center

Saturday to Thursday: 9 am - 9 pm

Credibility★★★☆☆ (3/5)
Service Quality★★★★★ (5/5)

Turnaround Time★★★★★ (5/5)

Always ensuring that it keeps up to date with the latest techniques as well as investing in new medical equipment, OCP Medical Center takes a snapshot of your DNA to detect possible genetic diseases and many other things.

OCP is a luxury cosmetics clinic with lab testing and vaccination services with a team that has more than 25 years’ worth of experience as a professional in the medical industry.

However, we are disappointed to learn that the clinic has no notable credentials and is not affiliated with any global or local medical partners that would differentiate it from the others.

The quality of the service at OCP Medical Center, however, is almost unbeatable. Located at the Fairmont Hotel, this clinic values safety, efficiency, and comfort.

It has Nutragene testing, Dermisgene testing, and Preventive Genomics, all of which come together to focus on the clients’ genetic dispositions.

By doing these tests, clients can learn more about their bodies and what they can do to fully maximize their physical and biological potential.

However, this means that its DNA testing is not 100% accurate when it comes to paternal DNA matching and we do not recommend this clinic for that absolute purpose.

And since accuracy is not its primary purpose, the turnaround time for its DNA testing services is usually within an hour and the specialist can get back to you with its results.


  • Tests made to focus on genetic dispositions
  • Team has more than 25 years of experience
  • High-quality service
  • Quick turnaround time


  • Not affiliated with any notable organizations
  • Tests are not highly accurate when it comes to DNA matching

I couldn’t be happier

“The clinic ambiance was great and the staff was very hospitable I had a wonderful  experience with my laser hair removal. It was well explained and the whole process finished quickly.

Part of a chain of laboratories accredited by the College of American Pathologists, Thumbay Labs has earned a great reputation for providing accurate & quality analysis within a specific time frame to its patients.

We love that it’s part of a chain of laboratories and its standards are based on a global medical organization that sets it apart from other labs.

This means that Thumbay Labs is part of a network that grants it access to experienced specialists and high-quality equipment and supplies.

However, its team does not have any noteworthy educational background or career history, which is fine, but this means it lacks that edge in this aspect.

We love that its service is streamlined and integrates online features on its website by letting patients book appointments and get their results on its laboratory’s official online platform.

We also appreciate that its website has a lot of resources on how to prepare yourself for DNA testing and a fully comprehensive guide of what to prepare before the appointment.

It offers a full range of DNA testing procedures in different packages.

While the packages may prove to be a bit intimidating to look over for those who have no idea how this goes, they are formulated to address the different intentions of patients on why they want to get their DNA tested.

This means that the testing can be tailored for each patient, which we really appreciate. However, despite its high-quality service, the turnaround time is still quite average.


  • Part of a global chain of laboratories
  • Streamlined digital services
  • Offers testing in different packages


  • Average turnaround time
  • Testing packages may be confusing for the normal person
  • Nothing noteworthy about the team’s background and experience

“I would like to share my experience after visiting Thumbay university hospital where I interacted with a receptionist by name of Maryam who was very professional and tentative to answer all my questions, Maryam made sure all things are taken care of.” – Nisar Moosa, Google Reviews

If going to an actual clinic is not your thing, Suspire Labs is one of the most trusted DNA testers in the GCC region, and the best thing is it delivers DNA kits to your home and picks up your samples.

We love that it analyzes its patients’ DNAs at the DNA Diagnostics Center, in Ohio, USA.

The laboratory is accredited globally, and its scientific team has the highest accreditations available for genetic testing, such as AABB-accredited relation testing.

Its DNA kits are not limited to paternity tests, although it is one of its most popular kits. It also has non-invasive paternity test kits, DNA sibling tests, and DNA health tests.

We love that it has a well-rounded range of DNA test kits, especially because it has a different variety of paternity testing like the non-invasive paternity test.

However, its customer service is somewhat slow and can be complicated. Every inquiry, appointment made, and basically the entire experience of talking to the staff is done through chatting or calling, which makes it very impersonal.

While it is efficient and lessens the need to take the time and energy to drive down to a clinic or lab, the self-testing kits prohibit any opportunity for Suspire Labs to have great customer service quality.

And the lab being in Ohio means that the turnaround is notably slower than the rest of the other paternity testing clinics in Dubai.


  • Delivers and picks up self-testing DNA kits
  • Lab is globally accredited
  • Has a great range of DNA test kits
  • Science team has the highest accreditations


  • Nothing notable about its customer service
  • Notably slow turnaround time

Associated with VIVO Group, the most preferred and fastest growing healthcare provider in GCC, Reem Medical Group’s paternity testing services comprise simple and painless DNA matching techniques.

Its specialty departments and state-of-the-art lab services make its paternity testing ultimately reliable and accurate.

These departments consist of specialist teams with appropriate experience, that’s really not noteworthy, but at least worth a mention because of its specialization

And as for its range of tests, Reem Medical Group has probably one of the widest ranges not just in our list, but in the entirety of Dubai.

It’s got the standard trio paternity test, motherless paternity testing, 1-day express testing, maternity testing, and extended testing.

The best part about it is those we listed are just the DNA testing that falls under the paternity testing category. 

It has got even more types of DNA testing from prenatal tests and adoption DNA tests to DNA banking and profiling.

When it comes to its service quality, there is nothing noteworthy about it all. While the staff focuses on educating and informing patients about preventing diseases, it does not really have anything special when it comes to DNA testing.

And when it comes to its turnaround time, it is the same thing as its service quality. We really thought that it would have a quicker turnaround time given that its DNA testing is all about being simple and accurate.


  • Associated with the most preferred healthcare provider
  • Has a wide set of paternity tests


  • Nothing notable about the customer service
  • Nothing notable about the turnaround time

5. Uturn9

Credibility★★★★★ (5/5)
Service Quality★★★☆☆ (3/5)

Turnaround Time★★★★★ (5/5)

A sister company to SWAFE Wellness, a revolutionary healthcare system, Uturn9 brings the most accurate information and diagnostics facilitated by expert genetics scientists based in Germany.

Besides being affiliated with some of the biggest organizations in healthcare, Uturn9 also has more than 12 million customers and publishes more than 150 peer-reviewed studies in scientific journals.

We love that its credential exceeds expectations and always makes sure that it is at the frontline of anything new in the medical industry.

Its tests come in packages including non-invasive pregnancy DNA testing, newborn and teenage testing, and carrier testing, among many others.

However, most of its tests are more focused on detecting genetic diseases and diagnosing these. The actual DNA matching is just a byproduct of it.

On top of that, the service quality is nothing remarkable at Uturn9, which is quite disappointing because we expected more since the lab is closely affiliated with globally renowned medical organizations.

The turnaround time, despite the DNA getting tested in Germany, however, is much better than what we expected.

Because of the advanced technology it uses over there, the results of the DNA testing can arrive online within a few hours, which is remarkably faster than other labs and clinics.


  • Affiliated with global health organizations
  • Its team is well-accomplished
  • Great range of DNA tests
  • Quick turnaround time


  • Nothing notable about the service quality
  • Tests are focused more on genetic dispositions rather than matching
