DNA Paternity Testing in Houston
Prenatal DNA Testing (DNA Testing While Pregnant)
There are several options for a DNA paternity test prior to a baby’s birth or while you are still pregnant. This test is typically conducted to ensure the child’s paternity before signing the baby’s birth certificate. This type of test is a prenatal paternity DNA test.
Two types of paternity DNA tests can be performed while pregnant:
- Non-invasive Paternity Test While Pregnant
- Invasive Paternity Test While Pregnant
i) Non-Invasive Paternity Test While Pregnant
This prenatal paternity test is conducted after the 9th week of pregnancy and has zero risk to the fetus. Our DNA experts consider this test a good choice for individuals who wish to find out their paternity results prior to the child’s birth. Free-floating fetal DNA is extracted from the mother’s blood and compared to the DNA from the biological father’s cheek swab sample DNA to determine paternity. This test is non-invasive and does not require insertion of a needle into the mother’s womb.
We ensure accurate results of prenatal DNA testing in Houston without a risk to the mother or child.
(ii) Invasive Paternity Test While Pregnant
This prenatal DNA testing is conducted between the 10th and 24th week of pregnancy. A long and thin needle is inserted to the mother’s uterus to collect the amniotic fluid, which is sent for laboratory testing, where it is compared to the alleged father’s DNA sample.
This prenatal DNA testing in Houston ensures 99.9% accuracy in determining paternity.

Maternity DNA Testing
This test is conducted to determine whether a woman is the mother of a particular child. Paternity and maternity tests are similar. In maternity DNA testing, the DNA of the child is compared to the alleged mother’s sample to check maternity.
Immigration DNA Testing
Our immigration test includes DNA testing of the alleged father, mother, or relatives to confirm the migrant’s biological relationship with the individual who is sponsoring their visa. This is a basic US immigration procedure required for passport verification, clearance, and citizenship.
Grandparents DNA Testing
We consider this as one of the most valued relationship DNA test procedures to analyze the child’s paternity when the potential father is missing or departed.
Aunt/Uncle DNA Testing
In an avuncular test, we check if the biological sister or brother of the child’s suspected father is the aunt or uncle of that child. We recommend this test only if the alleged father and grandparents are not available.
Sibling DNA Testing
This type of test is conducted when there is no available sample of the deceased alleged father. In this case, we collect samples of the child’s potential sibling to determine the relationship between both the individuals.
Infidelity testing is conducted to help determine whether your partner has been unfaithful.

The baby’s free-floating fetal cells enter the mother’s bloodstream by passing through the placenta. At one of our collection centers, we take a blood draw from the mother and a cheek swab from the possible father. Finally, the lab isolates the fetal cell DNA from the mother’s blood and compares it to the possible father’s DNA profile.
Paternity testing with just a father and a child usually produces a definitive Probability of Paternity (usually 99.99% or greater if he is the father or 0% if he is not the father). However, sometimes the matches between father and child are not strong enough for conclusive results. In those rare scenarios, the mother will also need to submit a sample for results.
There is no minimum age for a child to be tested.
No. Our DNA testing kits are easy to use, done with a simple buccal cheek swab. Think of rubbing a large Q-tip on your inner mouth cheeks – that is not painful at all.
We recommend that you send the samples back to our laboratory for testing as soon as possible after sample collection. However, the samples are stable at room temperature for up to three months after sample collection and you may send the samples back anytime within three months of sample collection.
