DNA Fingerprinting in Paternity Analyses
Most cases of disputed paternity can be adequately resolved by testing 26 blood group, serum and enzyme systems, ev. completed by testing the HLA-System. In some cases however, the probability of paternity according to Essen-Möller is lower than 99,80%, which is the limit required by Swiss courts. In a few cases, exclusions, suggestive of a possible mutation or a null allele, make the analyses inconclusive.
