The worlds most advanced legal prenatal non-invasive paternity test to find out who the biological father is, before the child is born.
An approved doctor, nurse or sampler will need to take your sample; this will consist of taking a blood vial from the mother and a mouth swab from the alleged father. The legal prenatal paternity test (non-invasive) should commence after 11 weeks of gestation, to allow time for the DNA of the child to be found in the blood of the mother.
You can expect results within 10-12 business working days on our secure online system, where you can also track the status of your test. We offer full support throughout the process and we are fully ISO: 17025 accredited and ISO: 9001 certified
An added £100 collection fee will be required, as this allows for the approved collector to take your samples.

Understanding DNA Test Results
How does it work?
The Legal non-invasive prenatal DNA test provides the safest and most accurate way to establish the paternity of a child before birth.
By using a cutting edge process that combines the latest DNA testing methods with a unique way of preserving the baby's DNA, found naturally in the mother's bloodstream, we are able to determine paternity from 11 weeks past conception.
How Accurate is the Test?
DNA Worldwide provide at least a 99.9% positive proof of relationship with every positive legal non-invasive prenatal test.
When can I take the test?
The mother's blood will carry foetal DNA from 11 weeks after conception. Testing can be done any time after this date.
Common Questions (Continued)
What does non-invasive mean?
Before DNA Worldwide's innovative, non-invasive test, the only way to establish paternity before childbirth was to collect a foetal sample from around the amniotic fluid or the placenta. This posed a risk of miscarriage.
Our non-invasive prenatal paternity test works by collecting a painless blood sample from the mother, which contains foetal DNA from the child. This is then compared to the father's mouth swab sample.
Are there any risks involved?
As the DNA test uses a blood draw from mother and father, there is no risk to the foetus. The nurses will take great care when collecting samples.
