Prenatal Paternity Tests during Pregnancy
Chorionic villi: Chorionoc villus sampling must be done by pregnancy weeks 10 to 12 by transcervical biopsy.
Amniotic liquid: Sampling must be done by pregnancy weeks 14 to 20 by transabdominal puncture.
LabGenetics collaborates with several gynecological and reproductive centers, in different Spanish locations, where sampling can be done. If you are interested, please contact us and we will set a date with the nearest center.
It is also possible to carry out the fetal sample collection in any other center. In this case, LabGenetics will contact it to coordinate the sample sending to our facilities to carry out the prenatal paternity test.
It is important to remark that both, chorionic biopsy and amniocentesis, have a small miscarriage risk (down to 0,5%). Amniocentesis is safer than chorionic biopsy. To minimize risks it is mandatory that the pregnant mother stays in complete rest for two days after the intervention.
Mother and allegued father sampling can be carried out at the gynecological center when fetal sample collection.
It is also possible to carry out the sample collection at LabGenetics or at any collaborative center. Besides, if you prefer, we can send you a confidential and free sample collection kit (link) to do it on your own.
