how do I add my half sibling DNA test?

In 2007 after my father died I took a DNA test to establish my paternal half-sister was his daughter. It was taken with the company DNA Diagnostics Center, and a I got a report from them which I've added.  The company isn't listed in the list of tests.  How do I add the right citation? The report doesn't say if the test was autosomal or not; it was a siblingship test using a sample from me, my mother, and my paternal half-sister [who is now adopted].

I think the only tests that can be registered are those from the main testing companies. Anyway, whichever test your half sibling has taken, she would have to set up her own Wikitree profile and register the test herself.

we both took the test, and submitted samples, as did my mother. The report has results from all three of us. Since we only have one parent in common one of our mothers was also needed.
Have you considered taking a test with one of the major companies offering matching?

Sounds like your Test was strictly for paternity to prove the ancestry of your half sibling.

 You still need to do a DNA genealogy (Autosomal) test through one of the other 4 main companies as listed on the DNA Test Information Page

The test would have to have involved autosomal DNA, based on who was tested. You could list it as an Other Autosomal Test and discuss it in the profiles that you want to mark as confirmed with DNA.

ADDED: I figure that you can use this set of tests to confirm yourself and your half-sister as connected to your father, plus your own connection to your mother.
