Twin Zygosity.

A Twin Zygosity Test Confirms Whether Twins Are Identical Or Fraternal
The purpose of a twin zygosity test is to determine with certainty as to whether twins are alike or fraternal.
Often times, identical twins may show physical characteristics that are different and may be misunderstood as fraternal twins.
On the other hand, same sex fraternal twins may look alike and considered as identical twins.

At the time of birth, a doctor can differentiate identical and fraternal twins by seeing whether the babies are sharing a placenta or if there two different placentas. Identical twins share one placenta, whereas fraternal twins will be in two different placentas. However, in certain situations it may appear that identical twins are having different placentas and fraternal twins are sharing a placenta.

There are a number of reasons for considering this test.
Some of the reasons are:
Inaccuracy or loss of birth records.
Doubts that arise, despite the original zygosity test, due to the emergence of different physical traits when the twins grow up.
If the placentas of the twins are discarded or damaged, before a twin zygosity test, because of a health-threatening or an emergency delivery experience.Personal curiosity.

There is also a health advantage angle to conducting this test. If one of the siblings requires a tissue or an organ transplant, the results of this test may be helpful in deciding whether the other sibling could be a donor or not.

In a twin zygosity test, the DNA profiles of the twins are compared with each other to find out if they match.
The DNA profiles of identical twins will match exactly.
It is a simple procedure that can be carried out sometime after the birth of the babies or later in life when the features emerge. It involves collection of cheek or Buccal swab from each baby, extracting the DNA and analysis and comparison.

A physician may be able to find out whether the twins are fraternal or identical by doing an ultrasound examination of the placenta.
It is also possible to determine zygosity through a pathological examination of the placenta after the babies are born.
However, studies indicate that these methods are not accurate and scientists, therefore, recommend a twin zygosity test.

Twins that are identical are formed from one zygote, a fertilized egg.
Generally, the zygote develops to form one embryo.
Sometimes, it splits and forms two embryos. The identical twins will have the same DNA profile because they come from one sperm and one egg.

When two different eggs in a mother's womb are fertilized by two separate sperms, fraternal twins are formed.
The DNA profiles of fraternal twins will not be exactly the same, though they can be expected to share some of the DNA from their parents.
