Prenatal Paternity Test

Pregnancy and childbirth are emotional and sweet experiences for a couple. However, in certain cases, the biological identity of the unborn child may be in question, making it important for would-be parents to check the paternity of the unborn child. Doing so is possible by a Non-Invasive Prenatal Paternity Test (NO SEX DETERMINATION). A Prenatal Paternity Test is meant for establishing the biological relationship of the baby in the womb with that of the alleged father.

Test Methodology

STR profiling is used for a Paternity DNA Test While Pregnant woman is carrying the baby in the womb. In this, the placental DNA of the fetus and the mother’s DNA are studied individually.

In the first step, the DNA is extracted from the samples and divided into small repeating sequences called Short Tandem Repeats (STR).

In the next step, these STRs are subjected to an amplification process using PCR technology, i.e., polymerase chain reaction.

Following this step, Capillary electrophoresis separates different STRs, and the resulting DNA profiles are generated.

If the two DNA profiles show a 99.99% match, then the baby in the womb and the alleged father are biologically related. If it’s a 100% exclusion (mismatch), the relationship is not established.

Need & Uses for A Prenatal Paternity Test

A Prenatal Paternity DNA Test is getting a DNA Test While Pregnant woman is still expecting the baby to be born. For a variety of reasons, the alleged father or the mother of the unborn baby may need to know if the child is biologically related to them or not? A Prenatal Paternity DNA Test is also done for legal purposes.

A non-invasive Prenatal Paternity Test for a legal matter may come in handy for the following cases:

  • Marital dispute
  • Paternity or Maternity disputes
  • Legal Custody of a child and so on
  • Disputes related to the inheritance of property or will

Is a Prenatal Paternity Test Safe?

Getting a DNA Test While Pregnant is 100% safe for both – the fetus and the mother. Unlike amniocentesis, this test doesn’t need drawing out the amniotic fluid from the womb to perform a prenatal paternity DNA Test, but only the mother’s blood sample. On the other hand, the alleged father has to give a buccal swab sample for the test. For the same reason, it’s called a Non-Invasive Prenatal Paternity Test.

Moreover, the report of a Prenatal Paternity DNA Test is as accurate as a regular paternity test after the baby is born.

*A Prenatal Paternity DNA Test in India does not determine the gender of the fetus [No Sex Determination]. Doing so is a punishable offense. At DNA Forensics Pvt. Ltd., we strongly oppose such practices.
