Prenatal paternity test is the best method of determining the parentage of the child even before the child is born. Like a standard paternity test, it compares the baby’s DNA profile with that of the alleged father.
The methods to determine parentage may be invasive or non-invasive. A baby’s DNA is formed just after conception and so the test is accurate like other DNA tests. There are safe methods to draw samples from the mother’s womb. The DNA of the baby has characters from both mother and father.
There are few ways of obtaining samples during pregnancy. These methods are decided depending upon the stage of pregnancy. The most common ways are Chrionic villi sampling and Amniocentesis.
The discovery of fetal cells in maternal blood has opened new opportunities for prenatal DNA testing. This approach is non-invasive and does not involve any risk. By testing the DNA profiles the laboratory is able to compare the DNA of the fetus with the mother and alleged father.
The non-invasive method of DNA testing of the unborn child poses less risk for the mother and the baby. The test is very reasonable. The results are equally accurate as invasive tests.
However experts can only determine the type of tests after they know the stage of pregnancy. The samples can be easily collected to conduct the test.
There are distinct doctors consigned to conduct this test. The test for non-invasive method can be done around and after 10 weeks of pregnancy. You can also get multiple tests done for all the alleged fathers. Sometimes an additional sample needs to be collected when the fetal cells are insufficient in maternal blood.
DNA Diagnostics and Genetic Center, India has a team of experts to conduct each test. We guarantee accurate results. The results are of utmost importance and can change the entire life. We are responsible enough to handle it properly.
The sample of hair, semen or toothbrush can be submitted in case the father is not agreeable. Incase the tests have to be used for legal purpose; different methods of collection of samples are observed. The samples are collected under strict conditions.
Diagnostic and Genetic Center India is affiliated to DDC, who are world leaders in DNA Testing. They provide the same level of expertise across the world. DNA testing has solved many problems that remained unsolved otherwise.
Since prenatal paternity test is a sensitive issue, utmost care is taken to conduct the test. All DNA tests are conducted by experts who have years of experience. Proper training has been provided to ensure professionalism.

The samples that need to be submitted for Prenatal Paternity test are-
* The unborn baby’s DNA
* The pregnant woman’s DNA
* The alleged Fathers’ DNA
For the sample of the unborn child, the amniotic fluid or the tissue from the placenta is tested. For collection of amniotic fluid, a needle is inserted through the abdomen. This procedure is called amniocentesis. For the sample of tissue from placenta, a needle is passed through the abdomen or through the vagina and neck of the womb. This procedure is called chrionic villus sampling.
