Prenatal Paternity Test
easyDNA is proud to offer its new, non-invasive and risk-free prenatal paternity test. Other more conventional prenatal sampling methods such as amniocentesis carry certain risks- our prenatal test does not. This highly advanced prenatal test can determine paternity with levels of accuracy above 99.%*.
All we require to accurately confirm or exclude paternity is a sample of maternal blood and a blood sample from the alleged father.
(*if the probability that the alleged father’s DNA contains the genetic markers required of the biological father is greater than 99.9% when compared to random individuals, paternity is concluded. If the alleged father matches no better than an unrelated individual, paternity is excluded).
What are the Advantages of Non-invasive Prenatal Paternity Testing?
1. The test is absolutely risk-free. We analyze the cell free fetal DNA found in the mother’s blood sample via a simple blood-draw. Current prenatal paternity testing sampling methods such as amniocentesis and chorionic villus sampling (CVS) are invasive and carry the risk of miscarriage or of harming the unborn child.
2. The prenatal paternity test we offer is more cost-effective, less time consuming and simple to carry out. The medical costs of undergoing invasive sample collections like amniocentesis or Chorionic Villus Sampling can be relatively high and can take longer to organize and conclude.
3. Our test does not require assistance of specialist OBGYN. Amniocentesis and CVS are medical investigations.
4. Because we use cell-free DNA in the maternal blood, there is no risk of misdiagnosis or incorrect results due to previous pregnancies or miscarriages It is important to note that because we use cell-free fetal DNA, our prenatal test is far more accurate and reliable than other non-invasive tests that use whole DNA enclosed in cells (nucleated fetal cells). See Science behind our prenatal test to understand how important this aspect is.
How does the Prenatal Paternity Test work?
Scientists have for long known that fetal DNA is present in maternal blood during pregnancy. Using state of the art technology we are able to isolate the fetal DNA from the maternal blood plasma and analyze 300,000 genetic markers to establish paternity. We can therefore accurately confirm or exclude paternity. This makes our test the most accurate non-invasive prenatal paternity test available worldwide!!
What is the Cost of the Prenatal Test?
You can carry out our test as early as the 10th week of pregnancy with results ready in just 5-7 working days from the receipt of the samples at the laboratory. To know for how long you have been pregnant, refer to our FAQs.
The cost of our non invasive prenatal test in Ireland is €1200.
