Amniocentesis / Chorionic Villus Sample (CVS) Prenatal Paternity Test

This prenatal paternity test uses the amniotic fluid or chorionic villus sample (CVS) collected by your physician to determine the paternity of your child.

Your physician is needed to collect your amniotic fluid or CVS sample.  DNA Plus coordinates this collection with your physician, as well as the collection of samples from the alleged father(s).  All arrangements will be made during your consultation.

Two types of this test are available: Standard (i.e., non court-admissible) and Court-Admissible.

With one call to DNA Plus, your entire test can be arranged - the mother's collection, the father's collection - everything.  Even if the mother and alleged father(s) are in different states - or countries.

Due to the invasive nature of an amniocentesis or CVS, many expectant mothers prefer our Fetal Cell Prenatal Paternity Test. This test is noninvasive and uses only the mother's blood to test paternity. (more information...)

  How It Works


Amniocentesis is a prenatal test in which a small sample of the amniotic fluid surrounding the fetus is removed and examined. Living cells from the fetus float in the amniotic fluid. These cells are used to determine paternity.

An amniocentesis is usually done 16 to 22 weeks into gestation.

Chorionic Villus Sample (CVS)

Chorionic villus sampling (CVS) is a prenatal test that involves taking a tiny tissue sample from outside the sac where the fetus develops.  This tissue is used to determine paternity.

While a CVS can be performed as early as 10 weeks into gestation, your physician will advise you on when to have the sample taken.

For more information on amniocentesis or CVS, consult your physician.
