Non-Invasive Prenatal Paternity Test

Confirm paternity without the wait

If you don't want to wait nine months, paternity can now be safely established before a baby is born with Natera's new non-invasive prenatal paternity test. Natera’s test uses a proprietary bioinformatics technology, Parental Support™, proven to provide highly accurate DNA testing results from a tiny quantity of DNA — as little as found in a single cell. Natera now delivers the only test available to reliably determine paternity from a maternal blood sample as early as the first trimester. Testing can be done as early as 9 weeks gestation and requires only a blood draw from the pregnant mother and alleged father(s).
