You can now enjoy the most precious phase of your life – pregnancy, by getting a Prenatal Paternity DNA test. If the paternity of the child is in question, it adds stress to the mom-to-be in this beautiful phase of life when she deserves the peace of mind. DDC Laboratories India has advanced DNA testing services for such cases. A Prenatal Paternity Test (No Sex Determination) helps you to get paternity-related answers about your unborn child. This test is non-invasive, meaning it’s 100% safe for you as well as your baby.
We are the only AABB-accredited DNA testing companies to provide the Prenatal Paternity DNA Test in India. Our DNA test reports are accurate and reliable, offering you complete peace of mind about your unborn baby’s paternity before your delivery. It is quite human to wish to discover the baby’s paternity before its birth, and we have been successfully helping individuals find these answers. 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 profile of the fetal cell DNA with the presumed father’s DNA.

AABB is the required accreditation of Immigration DNA tests for various embassies.
As shown in the illustration below, the fetal DNA is present in the mother’s bloodstream along with the mother’s DNA itself. The fetal DNA is isolated and analyzed for prenatal paternity testing.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is a non-invasive prenatal paternity test?
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.
How does a prenatal paternity test work?
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.
What does “non-invasive” mean?
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.
Will a previous pregnancy affect the outcomes of a test?
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.
Is there any difference between DDC’s test and other company’s tests?
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
Getting a Prenatal Paternity DNA Test can be critical as it can help in making crucial life choices. You can find companies advertising non-invasive prenatal paternity tests online 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 Laboratories India involves the most advanced scientific methods and the latest and advanced sequencing instruments. We are one of the most reliable DNA testing companies in the world, capable of delivering quality results to our valuable customers.
