prenatal paternity

Our laboratory tests more than 300,000 markers at only 7 weeks.

 

Results are available between 3-5 business days after the lab has received your DNA samples.

The recent discovery of the presence of fetal cells in maternal blood now offers a new approach using a non-invasive prenatal paternity diagnosis. By analyzing  individual DNA profiles based on sets of specific markers, the laboratory is able to compare a fetal DNA profile with the genetic DNA profiles of the mother and alleged fathers to determine paternity prior to the child’s birth.

Analysis of DNA from fetal cells in maternal blood samples is a screening test that is a non-invasive prenatal procedure and poses no risks to the mother or the fetus.

Why let the question of uncertain paternity create a stressful pregnancy when Bio-Gene DNA offers an affordable prenatal paternity test? Please call 1-844-BIO-GENE (246-4363) for a personalized and confidential consultation with a professional Genetic Consultant.

Bio-Gene DNA can provide this test is any state, province, or counrty.

Upon receiving your order, we will send you a complete Prenatal DNA Testing Kit containing the following:

A) Alleged father(s) sample collection materials. Use the enclosed swabs and directions to collect DNA samples from one or more potential fathers. There is no extra cost for any number of samples. We offer full confidentiality. The mother can submit discreet samples from the alleged father(s) without asking his consent (toothbrush, hair, cigarette butts, earwax, razor, chewing gum, nail clippings, blood, used tissue) if preferred. We advise that you collect these samples as soon as possible. They are usually viable for several weeks.

B) Maternal sample collection tubes. In the package is a special blood collection kit, with the specialized collection tubes to be used for this purpose. You will take this kit to a lab near you for a venous blood sample from your arm. Our testing lab can assist in recommending a convenient location for you to attend once you receive your kit, and drawing the blood sample only takes a few minutes. The plasma portion is rich in fetal DNA, which is stabilized and preserved in our special collection system. This fetal DNA is matched against the paternal DNA and yields a conclusive result. The cost of the blood draw is paid by the mother directly to the lab or the technician performing the service. This nominal fee is separate from the lab processing fee.

C) Pre-paid overnight return shipping container. In our package is a pre-paid, pre-addressed overnight FedEx bi0-hazard courier pouch. The DNA samples should be returned to the lab as soon after the blood has been collected as possible. Place all samples, as well as all documents (provided in you kit), in the pouch and call the toll free number to have a FedEx courier pick it up and deliver it to our lab overnight. In most cases, the site where you have your blood draw taken will handle this for you.

Five working days later, we will e-mail you with the results. Our testing laboratory has all procedures and paternity results verified by a PhD trained staff and each test is run twice to ensure accuracy.

How the process works – connecting the DNA from the fetus and the father

Fetal cells

DNA samples (buccal swabs or discrete samples) are collected from the presumed biological parents and compared to the fetal DNA obtained from the plasma portion of the small amounts of the venous blood sample from the mother at 7 weeks of gestation and beyond. The results of the test will prove if the suspected father is indeed the biological father of the fetus.
