The Mother's DNA Sample Collection Directions
Step 1: Open the prenatal DNA collection kit you will receive by USPS Priority mail.
Collect the alleged father's DNA sample using the instruction provided below, or in the kit.
Step 2: Your DNA collection will be based on your selection on the order form.
If you have selected on the order form that you want us to schedule your blood draw, you will receive an email with your appointment information prior to receiving you prenatal collection kit. The cost of the mother's blood collection is included in the cost when we use one of our professional collectors. If the collection will be done by a medical professional, just take the kit to them directly for the blood draw DNA collection.
The Alleged Father's Sample Collection Step-By-Step Directions
The mouth (buccal) swabs are packaged in sterile packaging. You will have two packets. Each packet contains TWO swabs. You will use all 4 swabs for each person.
Step 1: Complete the information on the DNA collection envelopes.
The names listed should be the same as you put on your order form. There will be one collection envelope for each person whose DNA is being collected by mouth swab.
Step 2: Open the paper packaging and remove the swabs.
Please be careful to handle the swabs on the long handle (the non-cotton end) only. DO NOT, at any time, touch the cotton end with your hands or fingers.
Step 3: With clean dry hands, collect cheek cells by rolling the tip of the sample collection swab firmly on the inside of the right cheek and under the tongue for 20-30 seconds.
Be sure to roll the swab over the entire inner cheek surface. Repeat this process for the same individual with the second swab. You should use two swabs on the inside of the right cheek and two swabs on the inside of the left cheek. Repeat the process for every individual being tested using a different set of swabs and envelope for each person.
Step 4: The mouth swabs should be dry before putting them into the collection envelope.
The best way of doing this without risking contamination is to place them in an upright position in a clean dry glass. Do not put more than one person's DNA samples into a glass at a time. The DNA samples of each person must never touch each other. Once they are dry, place them back into the correct envelopes.
Final Step For The Mother And Suspected Father(s): Place all of the swab envelopes, blood tubes that have been placed in the padded box, plus any included forms that you have completed, into the large pre-paid FedEx return bio-hazard mailer.
Then simply return them to a FedEx office or call FedEx to pick it up at a time that fits your schedule.
You will be notified once we get the package and your testing will begin!
Non-Invasive Prenatal Paternity Test FAQs
A non-invasive prenatal paternity test is a method used to figure out who the father is before the baby is born. While the mom is pregnant, scientists study the baby's DNA profile using special cells found in the mom’s blood sample. They then compare the baby's profile with the DNA profile of the man being tested—his DNA is collected through a straightforward mouth swab. A report is created to reveal whether the tested man is or isn't the biological father.
"Non-invasive" refers to a medical or testing procedure that doesn't require the penetration of the body or the use of instruments that break the skin or enter body cavities. In the context of a non-invasive prenatal paternity test, it means that the procedure doesn't involve any invasive methods such as taking a sample directly from the uterus or the amniotic sac. Instead, it relies on samples like a blood sample from the pregnant mother, making it safer and less intrusive than invasive methods.
This test involves obtaining a cheek swab from the potential father and a blood sample from the mother. We may also be able to test certain alternative items for the suspected father in cases where it is necessary to be more discreet. Call one of our Genetic Consultants to discuss this option at 1-855-362-5224.
No, the outcome of a non-invasive prenatal paternity test will not be affected by a previous pregnancy. The cell-free fetal DNA, which is used for the test, vanishes from the mother's bloodstream shortly after childbirth. Therefore, previous pregnancies will not impact the results of the current prenatal paternity test.

This Prenatal Paternity DNA Test relies solely on blood samples from the mother and can be conducted as early as 7 weeks into pregnancy, offering a completely non-invasive means of establishing the paternity of an unborn child.

We examine more than 13,000 SNPs from the alleged father, mother, and fetus. The gathered data undergoes advanced bioinformatics analysis, resulting in paternity results with a non-paternal exclusion rate exceeding 99.99%.
