Prenatal DNA Paternity Test in the UK
Our innovative prenatal blood test now makes it possible to establish paternity of an unborn baby with extreme accuracy of over 99.9%! Using a completely safe, non-invasive method we are able to isolate and extract the foetal DNA from the mother’s blood to compare against the possible father. Furthermore, this analysis can be done from as early as the 9th week from conception (this means you will be in your 11th week of pregnancy, starting from the first day of your last menstrual period).
Non-invasive and risk free
Through ground-breaking scientific developments we are one the first companies to offer this highly accurate prenatal paternity test using a simple blood extraction from the mother and samples collected using mouth swabs from the alleged father. Other methods performed during pregnancy such as amniocentesis and chorionic villus sampling can put both baby and mother at risk, our test is 100% RISK FREE. You can take this test starting from your 9th week. You can use our pregnancy calculator to work out your dates.
Note that this test requires blood samples from the mother. Please ensure they are filled fully as this test requires 20ml of blood. Samples from the alleged father are collected using mouth swabs provided inside the kit.
Why choose us? The benefits of our test
- Methods like Amniocentesis and Chorionic Villus Sampling must be performed by an OBGYN in a hospital or clinic. Invasive techniques require taking a DNA sample from the placenta or the amniotic fluid that surrounds the baby, by inserting a needle through the abdomen (CVS might occasionally be done by inserting a catheter through the cervix). Although small, these methods present the risk of amniotic fluid leak, infection and even miscarriage, why take a chance? homeDNAdirect offers a reliable solution with zero risk for mother and baby.
- The whole process is fast – a kit containing blood tubes for the mother and mouth swabs for the father will be sent to you. You then send the samples back for DNA analysis and you will receive your report within 7 to 10 working days from the time your samples reach the laboratory.
- We also offer an express testing service with results in just 3 working days from receipt of samples at the laboratory. The additional cost for express testing is £235.
- We offer a free return courtier service for you to send your samples directly to the laboratory. Be aware that if you chose a company that does not offer this extra service you may be stuck with blood samples that courier companies refuse to pick up or handle due to strict bio-hazard regulations.
Baby gender report available
Do you also want to find out the baby’s gender? homeDNAdirect can include the gender of you baby for a small additional fee. The laboratory can use the same maternal blood sample for both your non-invasive prenatal paternity test and to determine the gender of the baby. This service is available for an additional £149.
Understanding the science
Using cell-free foetal DNA in the maternal blood stream, this highly advanced technique analyzes single nucleotide polymorphism (SNPs) found in the maternal blood. Scientists look at over 2688 SNPs from the unborn baby, and using NSG (Next Generation Sequencing) technology we are able to report a highly accurate probability of paternity.
The only time we cannot conduct the test is if the Mother is expecting twins or if the alleged Fathers are close blood relatives.
