Can I Use A Discreet Sample For the Possible Father?

Category: Prenatal Paternity Testing

In most cases, yes. Discreet samples are items like nail clippings, cigarette butts, ear swabs, nasal mucus, blood card/blood stain on fabric only. We are not able to accept a toothbrush for a non-standard sample on prenatal testing. There is an additional cost per item, as a viability test must be performed prior to standard prenatal paternity testing.

For non-invasive testing, the discreet sample will need to undergo viability testing prior to having the mother’s blood draw and sent to our lab. If the sample is viable, then the testing can proceed.

If you have questions on non-standard samples for these tests, please call us at 1-855-362-5224, or email us at
