AlphaBiolabs are able to perform a non-invasive prenatal paternity test in Manchester as early as seven weeks into the pregnancy. In circumstances where there is uncertainty surrounding the baby’s father, this innovative procedure can help to provide answers.

This type of prenatal paternity test is 100% safe for both mother and child, and can be carried out at a very early stage in the pregnancy. There is no risk of miscarriage with this type of test.

How does the prenatal paternity test work?

A baby inherits DNA from both of its parents. Our prenatal paternity test examines the DNA samples from the mother, the alleged father, and the baby to identify which half of the DNA is inherited from the mother, and which half is from the father. If the man is the child’s biological father, both baby and father will share DNA.

Our non-invasive prenatal DNA test analyses the baby’s DNA within the mother’s bloodstream. A blood sample and two mouth swabs are required from the mother. From the alleged father, only two mouth swabs are required, to collect cheek cell DNA.

Both of these samples do not need to be collected in the same location, but they should be collected around the same time to avoid any delays to the testing process. This also helps to prevent the risk of the blood samples haemolysing.
