How do we do our prenatal paternity testing?

An AlphaBiolabs non-invasive prenatal paternity test is 100% risk free for mother and baby and can be performed as early as 7 weeks into pregnancy.

All that is required for our non-invasive prenatal paternity test is a blood sample from the mother, and cheek swabs from the mother and the alleged father. This makes our test completely safe, unlike invasive prenatal paternity tests (chorionic villus sampling or amniocentesis) which carry a small risk of miscarriage. 

For this test, the mother’s blood and cheek swab samples and the alleged father’s cheek swab samples are collected FREE OF CHARGE by our specially trained clinicians at our walk-in centre in Dublin.

Once you have placed your order online, we will contact you to arrange an appointment at the walk-in centre.

The mother and alleged father do not need to attend the same appointment, but we do recommend that samples are collected around the same time. This reduces the likelihood of the mother’s blood sample degrading, which can render the sample unusable.

Our specially-trained clinicians will collect all samples and ensure they are safely transported back to our laboratory for testing.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does the prenatal paternity test work?
Our non-invasive prenatal paternity DNA testing provides the most accurate way to determine paternity before birth. It uses a state-of-the-art process which combines the latest DNA technology and unique methods of preserving the baby’s DNA, which is naturally found in the mother’s bloodstream after 7 weeks into the pregnancy.
What exactly does non-invasive mean?
One of the best ways to explain non-invasive is to look at the opposite approach: an invasive DNA paternity test. The traditional invasive prenatal paternity tests require that cells be obtained from either the amniotic fluid or the placenta.

The non-invasive paternity test uses a simple blood sample from the mother and therefore does not require a needle to be inserted into the womb.

When is the earliest I can take the prenatal paternity test?
How safe is the test? What are the risks?
Our non-invasive prenatal paternity testing is 100% safe and risk-free for mother and baby.
How accurate is the DNA test?
Our DNA testing is 100% accurate and reliable based on the samples we receive at our laboratory.

We are also the only laboratory to hold ISO 17025 accreditation for our prenatal paternity testing.

What samples are required?
Two mouth swabs and a blood sample are needed from the mother, along with two mouth swabs from the alleged father.
Is a sample needed from the alleged father?
Yes. We need samples from both the mother and alleged father.
Can a prenatal paternity test be performed after fertility treatments?

Our Prenatal Paternity Test is ideally suited for expectant parents who have become pregnant following fertility treatment.

With increasing numbers of babies being born as a result of in vitro fertilisation (IVF) or surrogacy, DNA testing can provide confirmation and peace of mind as to the biological identity of an unborn child’s father.

Although mistakes are rare, as the fertilisation process takes place in a clinic or hospital, there is always a small risk of the wrong sample being used. This means that there is a possibility that the sperm donor may not be the biological father of the child.

A prenatal paternity test can help ensure any errors are identified before the baby is born.

Can the samples be collected at different locations?
No, the samples cannot be collected at different locations.

All samples for this test (mother’s blood and cheek swab samples and alleged father’s cheek swab samples) must be collected by an AlphaBiolabs specially-trained clinician at our Dublin walk-in centre. Sample collection is included FREE OF CHARGE for our prenatal paternity testing.

Sample donors do not need to attend the same appointment, but the mother and alleged father’s samples must be collected around the same time.

This reduces the likelihood of the mother’s blood sample degrading, which can render the sample unusable.

How are the samples collected?
Once you have ordered your test, we will contact you to arrange collection of the mother’s blood and cheek swab samples and the father’s cheek swab samples FREE OF CHARGE at our Dublin walk-in centre.

The mother and alleged father do not have to attend the same appointment at the Dublin walk-in centre. However, we do recommend that both the mother and alleged father’s samples are collected around the same time.

This is because blood samples are time-sensitive and must be returned to the laboratory as soon as possible after collection, along with all cheek swab samples.

This reduces the risk of the mother’s blood sample degrading in transit, which can render the sample unusable.

What happens if my prenatal paternity test result is inconclusive?
In the event of an inconclusive result, we will offer an additional free-of-charge test with newly collected samples, two weeks after the first test.

If this test is also inconclusive, we will perform a third and final test, also free of charge, after a further two weeks.

Whilst we will conduct up to two additional tests free of charge, please note that you will be responsible for the cost of the additional sample collections required.

In approximately 3-5% of cases, foetal DNA never reaches a sufficient level for successful testing. If this happens after we have performed three tests, AlphaBiolabs promises to refund the cost of your prenatal paternity test (please note this refund will not include the cost of any additional sample collections).

We are the only testing company that offers this money-back guarantee.

Please note if you receive an inconclusive result and decide to cancel your test rather than proceeding with the additional second and third free-of-charge tests, we will be unable to offer a refund.

When do I get my results?
Results can be made available in 5-7 days depending on the level of service you choose. Our express service can get your results back to you in just 4 days (for an additional €200).
How much does the prenatal DNA test cost?
Results can be made available in 5-7 days for €995. An express service to guarantee your results back in just 4 days is also available for an additional €200.
