Are you expecting? Do you know paternity testing during pregnancy is possible, even as early as 7 weeks gestation?
With the Certainty™ Non-Invasive Prenatal Paternity Test from DDC Laboratories India, it’s painless, fast, and accurate.
You can now enjoy the most precious phase of your life “pregnancy” by getting a Prenatal Paternity DNA test. Paternity of the child adds stress to the mom-to-be in this beautiful phase of life when she deserves peace of mind. DDC Laboratories India has an advanced technology that helps you to get paternity related answers of the unborn child that too in a non-invasive manner.
Prenatal Paternity DNA Test is the first, and only, AABB-accredited test and DDC is the only AABB-accredited laboratory to offer it. With us you are assured of accurate results that are scientifically substantiated to determine the paternity even before the baby is born. It is quite human to wish to discover the paternity of the baby before its birth. The advance technology of DDC Laboratories India helps to get accurate answers early in the pregnancy. This test is conducted using the latest DNA mapping technology combined with SNP Technology.
Cells from the developing fetus float in the bloodstream of the expecting mother. We compare the fetal cells profile with that of the presumed father.
About this test:
- The Non-Invasive Prenatal Paternity test provides accurate results you can trust in as few as 7 business days, with optional 3-day results available for an additional fee.
- The test is completely safe for the mother and pregnancy and can be performed as early as 7 weeks gestation.
- We provide court-admissible results, which mean our processes meet strict standards for excellence and accountability.
- DNA sample collection for Certainty requires only a simple blood sample from the mother and cheek swab from the possible father.
- This test provides 99.9999% probability-of-paternity results or higher for inclusions and 0% probability of paternity results for exclusions, just like a postnatal paternity test.
DDC Laboratories India has collection centers all over India and therefore it is very convenient to get the test done. We have a team of expert counselors who can recommend the right test and also suggest the right time to get it done. Your results are kept confidential.
Only DDC maintains strict standards of accountability for prenatal DNA paternity testing, including analysis, PhD review, and documentation. No other company’s test can claim AABB accreditation for prenatal paternity testing, so you can be sure your test is in good hands. AABB is the required accreditation of Immigration DNA tests for various embassies.
As shown in the illustration below, the fetal DNA combines with the mother’s DNA by passing through the placenta into the mother’s bloodstream. The fetal DNA is then isolated and analyzed during the testing process.
Frequently Asked Questions
A non-invasive prenatal paternity test is one way to determine who the biological father is before the baby is born. While the mother is pregnant, the baby's DNA profile is determined from the free-floating fetal cells found in the mother's blood sample. The pattern of the baby is compared to that of the tested man: his DNA is collected by a simple oral swab. A report is then generated to show if the tested man is or is not the biological father.
A prenatal paternity test uses the cell-free DNA of the developing fetus and floats freely in the pregnant woman's blood. This DNA can be found as early as the 7th week of pregnancy. Using our exclusive technology, DDC develops a DNA profile of the fetus's DNA and compares it to the DNA profile of the future father.
Until recently, the only way to test paternity during pregnancy was to collect the amniotic fluid with a long needle, which is an "invasive" procedure that poses a risk to the baby. "Non-invasive" means that it is not necessary to interfere in the baby's secure environment to perform a paternity test. Instead, we only collect a blood sample from the mother's arm and a sample of the father's cheek-swab.
No, a previous pregnancy will not affect the outcome of a non-invasive prenatal paternity test. Once a child is born, the cell-free fetal DNA disappears from the mother's blood within a few days; therefore, previous pregnancies will not interfere with the current prenatal paternity test.
Yes, there is a difference between DDC’s test and other company’s tests. Here are the Top 4 reasons:
AABB Accreditation: The DDC test is the first and only accredited by the AABB, an independent organization that sets standards of excellence, monitors laboratory performance, and issues accreditation when these standards are met. No other company or laboratory offers an AABB accredited prenatal DNA test. You can trust DDC to deliver accurate results.
Patient Care: Our prenatal specialists guide you through the test and are available to answer questions at every step of the process.
Testing Accuracy: DDC maintains various laboratory certifications, reflecting our commitment to quality and accuracy. You can rest assured that we are unparalleled in providing customers with the most reliable test available to date.
Full-Circle Test Management: DDC does not subcontract our tests or services. All stages of testing take place here in our state-of-the-art laboratory, so we have total control over the quality of the services we provide.
Quick Tip: Choosing the Best Lab for Prenatal Paternity Testing
Your paternity test is essential and can help in making crucial life choices. You can find companies advertising online to non-invasive prenatal paternity tests at low prices. Beware of these claims and ask to see the published research supporting these tests. If a company offers a free test after birth, it means that it does not defend the quality of its prenatal test. The NIPP test with DDC involves the most advanced scientific methods and high sequencing instruments of DNA. DDC is one of the most reliable laboratories in the world, capable of delivering quality results to our most important customer.

For NIPP test DDC uses state-of-the-art technology combined with rigorous bioinformatics analysis to provide accurate and reliable results. DDC is the only NIPP provider to confirm the presumed father of all tests. This confirmation step is the cornerstone of AABB standards. The bioinformatics pipeline evaluates the quality of generated data, and metric thresholds are used to evaluate test results. Reports are issued only if all limits are met. Finally, DDC has an expedited service capable of delivering results in three days from the date of receipt of the sample.In the laboratory, NIPP testing is done by a group of experienced and experienced technologists using next-generation sequencing technology. Controls are included in all tests to ensure reliability. Each case is evaluated and signed by a doctorate trained explicitly in technology and NIPP data analysis. This combination of professional staff provides superior quality assurance.
