Non-Invasive Prenatal Paternity Test
From only £999 with results in 7-10 working days
Our Non-Invasive Prenatal Paternity Test is a cutting-edge test that makes it possible for you to confirm if the man you suspect to be the father of your baby is the biological father. Available from the 9th week of pregnancy, starting from the first day of your last menstrual period, you can get the answer you need with a risk-free DNA test.
The Certainty™ test, with court-admissible results, is the only AABB-accredited prenatal paternity test, which means the laboratory processes meet strict standards for excellence and accountability.
We now also offer an express testing service and baby gender report as optional extras. Please see below for more information.
Prenatal Paternity Test Accuracy
Accurate results mean that you can have the certainty and peace of mind you need. Our Non-Invasive Prenatal Paternity Test uses Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) to examine 2,688 SNPs or Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms. These SNPs are very specific variations in the sequences of DNA and through their analysis we are able to provide more than 99.9% accurate results if the alleged father is the biological father and 100% accurate if he is not.
The laboratory processing your samples is one of the most highly accredited DNA testing laboratories worldwide, holding an extensive range of quality and calibration accreditations. Please visit our DNA Testing Laboratory Accreditation page for more information.

Our Prenatal DNA Paternity Test Kit Makes Your Life Easier
The prenatal kit contains everything you need to collect your samples and return them to us:
- 2 blood tubes for the mother’s blood
- 4 mouth swabs for the alleged father
- Consent forms
The father’s samples can be collected at home without any medical assistance – the procedure is simply rubbing the mouth swabs inside the mouth and can be carried out by the alleged father himself.
The mother’s samples must be collected via a medical blood draw which will need to be carried out by a doctor or a nurse. It is a standard blood draw from the arm, and we can arrange for a nurse to visit you at home if you prefer not to use your own GP. There is an additional charge for this service which varies depending on location. Please Contact Us for more information and a quotation.
Once you have all samples ready, they can be returned to our laboratory using the pre-paid courier pouch included with your kit.
Choose Our Non-Invasive Paternity Test For 7 Reasons
- This is the first, and only, AABB-accredited Non-Invasive Prenatal Paternity Test.
- You have the option of choosing an invasive prenatal test like amniocentesis or chorionic villus sampling – but would you really consider placing any kind of risk, no matter how small, on your life or that of your baby? Our non-invasive test is 100% risk free, without any of the side effects associated with invasive procedures such as cramping, spotting or bruising.
- Results take just 7-10 working days from when the laboratory receives your samples. An express service is available, see below for more information.
- Some invasive tests such as amniocentesis need to be carried out much later in pregnancy. Our non-invasive test can be carried out from 9 weeks.
- A simple medical blood draw is all that is needed – no need for an obstetrician or gynaecologist (OB/GYN). Amniocentesis and CVS can be far more complicated. They require an ultra-sonographer, an OB/GYN and the insertion of a needle or catheter into the womb. The chance of bleeding, infection and miscarriage cannot be excluded with these procedures.
- Results are sent by email in total confidentiality. We only disclose results to those individuals who have signed the consent forms sent back to us with the samples for testing.
- You cannot choose a more reliable, safer and accurate test. The Non-Invasive Prenatal Paternity Test will provide one of two outcomes:
The tested father IS the biological father of the child. The results will show a probability of paternity which shows how likely it is that the tested man is the biological father. In this case, our results will be more than 99.99% accurate.
The tested father IS NOT the biological father of the child. The results will show a probability of paternity of 0%.
Convenient Payment Options
Our non-invasive prenatal paternity test starts at £999 for testing mother and alleged father. This is an all-inclusive price with no hidden costs. It includes the kit, the analysis of your samples, return courier fee to the laboratory and the test results.
If you prefer, we offer the option of paying a 50% deposit on ordering your test. You can then simply pay the remaining balance when we receive your samples at the laboratory.
Baby Gender Report – Optional Extra
We now offer the opportunity to discover the gender of your unborn baby. For an additional fee of £100 we will include the baby’s gender in your results report. Just select the “baby gender report” option during checkout if you wish to include gender information.
Express Testing Service
You will receive your test results 7-10 working days from when samples are received by our laboratory. We also offer an express testing service for an additional fee of £150. Our express service makes your results available in just 5 working days from receipt of samples.
Currently we are unable to provide a non-invasive prenatal paternity test to mothers expecting twins, IVF, egg donor or surrogacy pregnancies, incest cases, or in cases where the alleged fathers are close blood relatives.
Only paternity can be reported, we cannot test for maternity.
Please read our Prenatal Paternity Test Terms and Conditions carefully and make sure you understand them before placing an order.

Limitations of Cell-Free Foetal DNA Testing
The prenatal paternity test relies on an acceptable level of foetal DNA in the mother’s blood stream.
For most women, the levels of foetal DNA increase throughout their pregnancy. However, there are a small percentage of women that will not generate enough foetal DNA in their bloodstream (even in later months of her pregnancy) to be a candidate for this test.
If we identify acceptable levels of foetal DNA in the blood, we are able to develop a DNA profile of the foetal cells and release the results.
If the foetal DNA levels fall below our laboratory standards to perform this test, the laboratory will not be able to create a DNA profile for the foetus and will request a recollection of the sample.
Low levels of foetal DNA should not be an area of concern for the mother. They are not any indication of the health of the pregnancy. They are only important as they relate to this specific test.
