Prenatal Non-Invasive Paternity DNA Test
cheap prenatal paternity test
How does a prenatal paternity test work?
The biological father of the child can be determined by a simple blood draw from the mother and a mouth swab from the alleged father. Professional experienced lab technicians separate fetal DNA from the mother’s DNA to create a DNA profile for the fetus. The fetus’ DNA profile is then tested against the alleged father’s DNA profile. This test can be performed as early as 8 weeks of gestation.
How accurate are prenatal paternity test results?
This Non-Invasive Prenatal test utilizes the Next Generation Sequencing (NGS), to generate results. This technology will examine 2,688 SNP (pronounced snip) markers in the DNA to develop the data used to calculate whether or not the alleged father is the biological father of the fetus.
The report format will clearly indicate whether the alleged father is included or excluded as the biological father of the fetus.
Are the results able to be used in court?
Yes, if you choose the legally admissible option. While the results of the private and legal test are EXACTLY the same, a legal test requires verification of the identify of both the mother and suspected father, a third party who is not related to them to witness the collection, and legally admissible paperwork such as a chain of custody form.
The results are so accurate they can be used in court as proof of the paternity relationship!
How long does it take to get the results?
5 working days in most cases. Processing starts as soon as they arrive to the lab via UPS Overnight delivery, which we provide as part of the testing fee.
How much does a prenatal paternity test cost?
The process to extract the fetal DNA, the mother’s DNA, and the suspected father’s DNA is very involved and requires very specialized equipment. The cost is more than a paternity test that is performed after a child is born, however there as many benefits to knowing with certainty who the father is prior to the birth. We have provided a list of companies that offer this service and the prices they charge. We have listed only labs in the USA due to concerns about unregulated testing in other countries, issues with customs when sending blood samples, and consumer comments.
Commonly Asked Questions
Once we receive your order we will send to you the Prenatal Paternity DNA Collection Kit. You would take this kit to the lab to have them draw two small vials of blood from the mother. If you wish to have a legally admissible test done you would also have the suspected father’s mouth swab done at the same time and provide proof of identity, otherwise you can collect his swab at home.
The kit contains bio-hazard packaging (blood is considered a bio-hazard) and a prepaid overnight mailer to our testing lab. Processing begins as soon as the lab has the samples. The results should be available in 8-10 working days.
Detailed instructions are included in every kit, and Bio-Gene DNA Genetic Consultants are available to assist you through the process if needed.

Why Is Establishing Paternity Important?
Establishing paternity is important to ensure a child’s well being. It can also help protect his or her future.
Determining a biological relationship is important for several reasons:
- To establish legal and social benefits, including social security, veteran’s, and inheritance benefits.
- Provides an accurate medical history for the child, giving the healthcare provider additional insight during diagnosis and in managing the child’s health.
- Strengthens the bond between biological individuals, such as father and child.
If you are pregnant, most states have laws that require an Acknowledgment of Paternity form to be completed at the hospital to legally establish who the father is. After the AOP is signed, couples have a limited amount of time, depending on the state, to request DNA paternity test and amend the AOP. This form is filed with the Bureau of Vital Statistics and is a legally binding document.
If the time allowed for amending this form expires, the father listed as the AOP and birth certificate could be held legally responsible for the child, even if he later proves he is not the biological father.
Some states require an unmarried couple to have a paternity test to list a father’s name on the birth certificate. If the mother is married to someone other than the father of the child, the husband can be presumed to be the father and listed on the birth certificate as the legal father, unless otherwise disputed by a paternity test.
