Call our toll-free number for more information and how to order a prenatal DNA paternity test with free test kit.
Prior to a child's birth, GTL can perform a prenatal DNA paternity test from DNA samples taken during the first and second trimesters of pregnancy. DNA Samples must be collected by your doctor (an OB/GYN) in an amniocentesis or a CVS procedure. In an amniocentesis procedure, amniotic fluid from around the fetus is collected. In the CVS procedure, chorionic villi from the placenta are collected. The CVS procedure can be used for early detection 10-12 weeks into pregnancy. Amniocentesis can be performed between 12 and 21 weeks.
New York State Residents
