We offer three types of prenatal tests. These tests offer 99.9% results that are always run twice for accuracy.
NONINVASIVE PRENATAL NIPP TEST
The most popular Prenatal Paternity test is called the non-invasive NIPP prenatal paternity test. This test allows you to do a mouth swab on the alleged father and blood draw from the mother’s arm. This test is completely harmless for the child. This test can be done as early as 7 weeks and has results in 3 to 7 working days. This test is $1695 and offers great payment plan and coupon options.
PRENATAL AMNIOCENTESIS TEST
Our second most popular prenatal paternity test is called an amniocentesis. For this test the mother should be between 12 weeks and 22 weeks of gestation. Your own doctor, OBGYN or gynecologist would need to perform this procedure for you. We would mail them the DNA testing supplies to put the amniotic fluid in and they would send it back to us to analysis. They would also send us a mouth swab from the mother and alleged father. This test is $490 and finishes in roughly five working days. This test does pose a considerable amount of risk to the mother and/or child. Please get with your doctor or gynecologist to see what the potential risk may be.
A high level overview of the procedure is your doctor basically taking a long needle and entering your stomach area better known as the amniotic sac. They’ll take about 4 to 6 cc’s of fluid out and send it to our laboratory so that we can get the baby’s DNA. From that point our PhD will compare the baby’s DNA to the mother and the father’s mouth swab. Pretty easy right! Don’t forget to call us if you have questions on the procedure and check with your doctor to see if this procedure is right for you. We used to suggest local doctors to complete this procedure for you but due to the risk it’s best for you to consult the doctor of your choice.
PRENATAL CVS TEST
Another option for Prenatal Paternity testing is called a CVS test. This test is also known as a chorionic villus sample test. Your own doctor, OBGYN or gynecologist would perform this procedure for you. This test does pose a risk to the mother and the child. Please consult your primary care physician for details on how this test is performed.
Just to give you an idea on how the test is performed, your doctor would first dilate the mom’s cervix. She would need to be between 10 and 12 weeks of gestation. At that stage of pregnancy microscopic chorionic villi cells are treading along the mother’s birth canal. Your doctor is able to scrape those cells (similar to a culture sample) to create a profile for the baby.Then your doctor will do a mouth swab on the mother and alleged father. After they complete the collection they’ll send us the specimen to be tested. Our lab would then compare the baby’s DNA profile to the alleged father’s mouth swab to let you know if indeed he is the father. This test has 99.9% accuracy and is completed in roughly five working days. That’s a lot of information to take in so please don’t hesitate to call or email us and we’ll gladly walk you through the process.
