Paternity testing

Detection of paternity is carried out with blood tests or tests of other biological samples. Methods used in criminology are applied to compare genetic markers which are stored in the DNA of the mother, child and alleged father.

  • Non-invasive paternity test by arrangement from the 11th week of pregnancy*
