Common questions about Non-Invasive Prenatal Paternity Tests:
How much does this test cost?
This is not a cheap test; it is one of the most expensive DNA tests on the market today. You should expect to pay from $1600 to over $2000 for a fully accredited non-invasive prenatal paternity DNA test. Legal or court admissible versions will cost even more.
Is this a legal test?
This test can be offered as a legal paternity test. Having legal results in hand now will save you time in the future by not having to re-test.
Is this a walk in test?
No. Most laboratories need to schedule this in advance, preferably up to one week. This test requires a certified phlebotomist for blood collection and many DNA Laboratories do not have one on hand and will need to schedule them to do the collection.
Do you offer a re-test when the baby is born?
No. And any client should be wary of companies that do. If a company is offering a free post-birth test, this means they don’t stand behind the quality of their prenatal test.
Is there any danger to the fetus/baby?
No. This test is completely harmless to the mother and to the baby. It tests for fetal DNA in the blood stream of the mother and not in the amniotic fluid as with more conventional prenatal Paternity Tests, such as CVS or Amniocentesis.
I have been pregnant before, will this affect the outcome?
No. A previous pregnancy will have no effect upon the outcome of a non-invasive prenatal paternity test. Once a pregnancy has run its course the fetal DNA is removed from the mothers blood by her own body.
