Fast, Powerful and Proven
The DNA Twin Zygosity Test will conclusively confirm whether a set of twins are Identical Twins or Fraternal Twins. It is not always 100% conclusive during birth whether a set of twins are identical or fraternal. The only way to conclusively confirm zygosity is through genetic testing. The DNA Twin Test can be taken by twins of all ages.
