Are you looking for a convenient prenatal paternity test near you?

AlphaBiolabs is a UK-based laboratory carrying out award-winning DNA testing services. All of our testing is carried out within the UK and we have designed the process to make it as simple and accessible as possible for our customers.

Our prenatal paternity test can be taken from as early as seven weeks into the pregnancy right up until the baby’s birth. The mother simply needs to give a blood sample, while the potential father takes two mouth swab tests, ready for analysis by our highly skilled team.

AlpahaBiolabs has a network of fully-trained sample collectors based across the UK who can come to your home to collect the samples needed for testing. Alternatively, you can visit one of our 10 walk-in centres, which are based in convenient locations across the country.

Our standard prenatal paternity test costs just £875 and you will receive the confidential results via email within seven working days. There is also the option to get your results even more quickly – within four working days – for an additional £200.

You can choose to pay upfront or spread the cost of the test with our interest-free credit payment option.

Is the prenatal paternity test safe?

At AlphaBiolabs, we understand that the health of your unborn child is your top priority. This is why the prenatal paternity test we offer is completely risk-free for both the mother-to-be and her baby.

Some DNA tests carried out in pregnancy come with a slight risk of causing miscarriage, as a needle is used to extract a sample of the amniotic fluid surrounding the foetus in the womb. However, our prenatal paternity test is completely non-invasive and involves nothing more than giving a sample of blood.

Our laboratory staff will analyse the blood for traces of the baby’s DNA, which circulates in the mother’s bloodstream during pregnancy. By comparing this DNA to that of the mother and the alleged father, our team can determine paternity with at least 99 per cent certainty.

We have also designed our prenatal paternity testing service so there is minimal financial risk to you.

In some cases, there may not be enough prenatal cell-free DNA (cfDNA) in the blood sample collected from the mother. If this happens, the result will be inconclusive, but AlphaBiolabs will then offer up to two more tests at no additional cost. If the result is still inconclusive after the third test, we will give you a full refund. However, please note that we can only refund the price of the testing itself and not the costs involved in sample collections.
