Paternity Tests That Suit Different Needs
There are four primary types of paternity testing offered by ARCpoint Labs of Waldorf: prenatal paternity testing, postnatal paternity testing, legal, and immigration paternity testing. Each type serves a distinct purpose and is designed to provide reliable results.
- Prenatal paternity testing - this test is conducted during pregnancy and is ideal for individuals seeking early confirmation of paternity. This non-invasive procedure involves collecting samples of the mother's blood and a cheek swab from the alleged father.
- Advanced technology allows for the isolation and analysis of fetal DNA present in the mother's bloodstream, providing accurate results with a high degree of certainty. ARCpoint Labs of Waldorf understands the sensitive nature of prenatal testing and ensures the utmost care and privacy throughout the process.
- Postnatal paternity testing - this is the most common type of paternity testing which is performed after the child is born. This method involves collecting a DNA sample from the child, the alleged father, and if available, the mother. Cheek swabs are typically used to collect these samples, as they are non-invasive and painless.
- The collected samples are then sent to a laboratory for analysis. ARCpoint Labs of Waldorf employs state-of-the-art technology and follows strict quality control protocols to ensure accurate and reliable results.
- Legal - In cases where legal documentation of paternity is required, such as child custody disputes or immigration proceedings, legal paternity testing is necessary. This type of testing adheres to strict chain-of-custody procedures to maintain the integrity of the samples and results. ARCpoint Labs of Waldorf understands the importance of compliance with legal requirements and provides certified results that can be used as evidence in court.
- Immigration - We offer immigration paternity testing services to assist families navigating the complex immigration process. Immigration paternity testing serves as a crucial tool in establishing the biological relationship between a child and their alleged father for immigration purposes.
