Blood (Non Invasive) vs. Invasive Prenatal Paternity DNA Tests

  Non Invasive Prenatal Paternity Test on Blood Invasive Prenatal Paternity Tests
Sample Simple blood sample collection from the mother. Blood collection requires less than 20 minutes. 1. Amniocentesis: collecting the amniotic fluid that surrounds the fetus. Guided by ultrasound, an OB-GYN uses a long needle through the abdomen to collect fluid.

2. CVS: collecting the chorionic villi that make up the placenta. Guided by ultrasound, an OB-GYN uses a catheter through the vagina or a long, hollow needle through the abdomen (depending on the position of the fetus) to collect cells.

Time for testing After the 10th week of pregnancy. 1. Amniocentesis: between 14th and 22nd week of pregnancy.

2. CVS: between 10th and 14th week of pregnancy.
