Prenatal Paternity Test

Our prenatal paternity testing (Non-Invasive) is used to determine whether a potential father is the biological father of a baby, before it is born. It involves a simple blood test to compare the baby’s DNA, circulating in the mother’s blood, to that of the potential father.

Prenatal Paternity Test

When a woman is pregnant, fetal DNA is present in her blood. Paternity can be determined by sequencing and analysing cell-free fetal DNA extracted from the blood of the pregnant woman. This test is non-invasive, only requiring a blood sample from the mother which is safe for both the mother and the unborn child. 

Our DNA test is highly advanced, and the most accurate on the market. We are also able to test more than one alleged father at an additional cost.

At Smart DNA, your collected DNA samples are tested and reviewed in a laboratory that is accredited to the highest international standard, ISO 9001, a certification awarded to facilities that display outstanding excellence in their methods and procedures.
