Prenatal Paternity Test

Non-invasive procedures are used in the vast majority of pre-natal paternity determinations because the procedures involve no risk to the fetus since there is no invasion of uterine/placental integrity. Viaguard's DNAffirm technology provides definitive pre-natal paternity determination using a small sample of maternal blood as a source of fetal DNA and buccal swabs from the potential father(s).

Viaguard noninvasive prenatal DNA testing uses cell free fetal DNA from the plasma of the mother- to- be. Circulating cell free fetal DNA which compises 3-13% of the cell free DNA in maternal blood is separated by Viaguard from all other blood constituents in about 4 days, and then the fetal DNA profile is determined and compared to the DNA profile of potential fathers.

Maternal Venous Blood - safe and non invasive

Viaguard's prenatal paternity testing is based on comparing the potential father(s) DNA, obtained by buccal swabs or other methods, to the DNA of the fetus as evidenced in fetal DNA material found in the maternal venous blood. Non-invasive testing is done on samples from anywhere in the world, using our exclusive Accu-stable collection system which we supply.

The placenta is a wall of tissue that forms inside the uterus during pregnancy, and is comprised of fetal cells.

The placenta enables the fetus to receive, during gestation, all the nutrients and oxygen needed for normal development. The fetal side of the placental barrier has an intricate network of thousands of minute blood vessels, which are in fact the fetal blood supply, which receives food and oxygen by diffusion from the maternal side of the placenta.

Research studies demonstrate that the placenta is not just a passive membrane, but serves a vital function in fetal brain development. The placenta synthesizes serotonin and releases it in the fetal blood supply where it travels to the fetal brain. This supply of serotonin is essential for fetal brain development and failure to provide this supply can result in later mental and physical problems in the child. Because the placenta is so important in brain development Viaguard strongly recommends the use of its safe and non-invasive maternal venus blood sample, drawn from the mother's arm and not the use of invasive technologies which may traumatize the placenta.

At no time do the maternal and fetal blood supply mix, and waste from the fetus diffuses through the placenta into the maternal blood supply. Included in this diffusion is fetal DNA, which is a normal component of maternal blood during gestation. Fetal DNA is found in cells that migrate, but the most important source is cell-free molecules of fetal DNA. These are formed during the development of the fetus and placenta, because there is a certain amount of cell lysis and apoptosis. It is this naked fetal DNA, once isolated, which is used in the Viaguard prenatal test for paternity determination.

TRUST VIAGUARDS EXPERIENCE AND CLINICAL PRECISION

AFTER 11 WEEKS OF GESTATION, SAMPLES CAN BE TAKEN BY ATTENDING AT OUR FACILITY, OR WE WILL MAKE ARRANGEMENMTS FOR SAMPLES TO BE TAKEN WHEREVER YOU LIVE, IN ANY COUNTRY, STATE OR PROVINCE. A CLINICALLY PRECISE DNA DETERMINATION OF PATERNIY IS AVAILABLE AT A TOTAL COST NEVER EXCEEDING $800.00. CALL US AT (416) 691-4167 or toll free at 1-877-842-4827TO DISCUSS YOUR CIRCUMSTANCES

We supply the laboratory with the specialized collection tubes to be used for this purpose and returned to us after the collected blood has been centrifuged to separate the maternal red blood cells from the plasma.

The plasma portion is rich in fetal DNA, which is stabilized and preserved in our special collection system. This fetal DNA is matched against the paternal DNA and yields a conclusive result. Complete cost of the test is $800.00.

  • Test includes maternal alpha-fetoprotein screening for spina bifida The American Pregnancy Association states "The benefit of screening is that 75% to 90% of babies with neural tube defects are detected
  • Due to our high volume, we are able to offer a discount as well as payment plan options

 

Paternal DNA Samples

As in all paternity testing, DNA samples are required from the potential father(s). They are usually acquired by obtaining paternal buccal swab samples using our kit or at our facility. Paternity samples can also be acquired without the potential father(s) knowledge using a variety of discreet DNA samples as listed below under the heading discrete prenatal paternity testing.

Discrete Prenatal Paternity Testing
There may be occasions when the mother to be does not want the potential father(s) to be aware of her prenatal paternity test. Viaguard performs many prenatal tests where only the mother to be is aware of the test.

DNA samples from the potential father(s) can be obtained from a variety of discreet sources including but not limited to:

  • Mucous (used Kleenex)
  • A spot of blood or any blood sample
  • Semen (used condom etc.)
  • Nail clippings
  • Ear wax
  • Razor (including electric)
  • Cigarette butts (2 or more)
  • Chewing gum
  • Toothbrush
  • Saliva (on cups, envelopes etc.)

-ACCURACY WHEN SAMPLES ARE SUBMITTED FROM TWO POTENTIAL FATHERS - 97.2% (SECOND FATHER'S SAMPLE CAN BE ANY DISCREET SAMPLE SUCH AS A TOOTHBRUSH ETC.).
-ACCURACY WITH CHEEK SWAB SAMPLES FROM JUST ONE FATHER 96.3%

How the process work

DNA samples (buccal swabs or discrete sampls) are collected from the presumed biological parents and compared to the fetal DNA obtained from the plasma portion of the small amounts of venous blood sample from the mother at only 11 weeks of gestation. The results of the test will prove:

  • The presumed biological parents are indeed the genetic parents of the fetus
  • The absence of any surrogate genetic link to the fetus
  • The certified documents prepared by Viaguard facilitate birth registration and provide assurances to all parties.
