Prenatal Paternity

The non-invasive prenatal test requires a blood sample from the mother and a cheek swab from the possible father so there is a no risk to the pregancy or baby. A non-invasive prenatal paternity test has now made it easier than ever for potential fathers to determine paternity before the baby is born. By comparing the DNA profile of the fetus obtained from the mother’s blood sample with the DNA profile of the potential father collected through various means, such as a mouth swab or other samples like fingernail clippings or ear swabs, a report can be generated early on to confirm or exclude paternity with high accuracy. This option provides families with important information and peace of mind during pregnancy.

This method of paternity testing is considered non-invasive because it does not require any invasive procedures on the baby itself. By only collecting samples from the mother’s blood and the father’s cheek, the test can determine paternity without posing any risk or discomfort to the child.

This non-invasive prenatal paternity test is a groundbreaking advancement in genetics, allowing for accurate paternal genetic identification simply from a blood sample of the mother and without the need for invasive procedures like amniocentesis. With high accuracy and reliability, this test offers expecting parents unparalleled clarity and peace of mind in determining paternity early in pregnancy.

There are free-floating fetal DNA cells combined with the mother’s DNA that passes through the placenta into the mother’s blood. The fetal DNA is isolated and then tested with the possible father’s DNA profile.

Gender identification is an option and can be added for an additional fee.
