Affordable Prenatal Paternity Testing Available!

At Fastest Labs, we frequently receive inquiries about DNA testing during pregnancy. If you're considering or require DNA testing while expecting, we are here to assist you. Below is a comprehensive guide on non-invasive prenatal paternity testing (NIPP), also known as non-invasive prenatal testing (NIPT), which can be conducted before your baby is born.

Understanding the paternity of your child is crucial, and waiting until after birth for a DNA test can cause months of anxiety. Knowing the father's identity now allows you to prepare adequately before the baby's arrival when your life may become even more hectic.

Establishing paternity before birth can also streamline your personal affairs, addressing legal matters like child support, birth certificate details, custody, and more. With recent changes in Texas laws, early paternity determination is essential if there are any uncertainties.


This test can be conducted as early as the 7th or 8th week of pregnancy, enabling you to confirm paternity shortly after discovering you're pregnant. Non-invasive prenatal DNA testing is safe for both the mother and the fetus.

Older methods like amniocentesis, which involves extracting fluid from around the baby, are less expensive but carry risks such as miscarriage. Fastest Labs exclusively offers NIPP testing due to safety concerns associated with amniocentesis.


The mother provides a blood sample, and the potential father provides a cheek swab. Both samples are sent to the lab for analysis. At the lab, the mother’s DNA is separated from the child’s DNA profile, and a comparison is made with the potential father’s DNA to determine paternity. If the tested man is not the father, the test will indicate a 0% probability.

Prenatal tests are generally more expensive than post-birth tests. Fastest Labs offers two options based on the desired speed of results:

  • Results in 1 week or less: $1450
  • Results in three weeks: $1050

All tests at Fastest Labs are legal if the father provides a cheek swab. We offer payment plans where you can pay half upfront and the rest upon receiving the results.

In cases where the father is unavailable, Fastest Labs may be able to obtain DNA from contact items like drink glasses, toothbrushes, hairbrushes, etc. If the father is deceased, DNA can often still be obtained, though additional fees apply for contact items.
