Paternity DNA test – prenatal (through invasive procedures)

It is possible to perform paternity DNA testing prenatally, provided that fetal cells are obtained following an invasive procedure (amniocentesis). Technically, the test is performed through the same DNA analysis method as the standard postnatal paternity DNA test.

In order for the test to be performed, InterGenetics sets strict requirements for not terminating the pregnancy. For this reason, we accept performing the test after the 12th week of pregnancy, which is the legal limit in Greece for elective abortion. For this reason we may perform the test prenatally only from an amniotic fluid sample, obtained in the 2nd trimester of pregnancy.
