Of course they generally use tech better suited for identifying whether a given person is likely to be a parent, which is a different problem. I would submit some do use better tech and some don't. That's why (unlike DNA ancestry) there's a accreditation process. Not all parentage vendors are accredited. (Also the price is not orders of magnitude different. Depends on the company and the test.)

In any case it's more like comparing one telescope to see the planets and a different one to see the moon. Sure, you get better pics of the moon but it's not necessarily because the scope is better.
