Is request for paternity test offensive to women?

DNA paternity testing carried out by DNA Center Ghana offers you a highly accurate method for clarifying and confirming biological paternity. We use the most advanced DNA testing technology to carry out your paternity test for complete peace of mind.

A lot of women may find it offensive if their husband would be requesting for a DNA test. For most of them it’s a clear sign of mistrust and an insult because their husbands would not tell them. From men’s point of view, they want to do the test if their wife has a cheating history or the relationship is on and off, no obvious affairs. Some (very few) women wants their man to step up and say it instead of doing it behind their back. It is a hard choice – to go throgh this without offending them anyway :-).

With DNA Center Ghana, whether you want to conduct a annonymous, legal or immigration DNA paternity test, you can stay assured that our testing process is highly accurate and that the information you share us with will be kept 100% confidential. Offensive or NOT, it is our best interest to provide exceptional service and give much needed assistance to our clients accross Ghana and West African sub-region.

First non-invasive prenatal DNA paternity testing in Ghana

DNA Center Ghana is proud to announce new advanced non-invasive prenatal paternity test. This test can confirm or exclude the paternity for unborn child during the pregnancy provided the mother is at least 11 weeks pregnant. To run the test we only need to have a sample of whole blood from mother and alleged father obtained through standard blood draw performed by any nurse or phlebotomist. We do not use amniocentesis or CVS for sample collection and that makes our non-invasive test 100% safe for mother and the fetus. Our facility will provide special blood sample collection kit for every case.

Once the blood is collected from the mother and alleged father, circulating cell-free fetal DNA is separated from the mothers blood and DNA profile is prepared for the unborn baby and alleged father. Our test is more specific and sensitive due to the fact that cell-free fetal DNA is used. Other laboratories offer prenatal tests using amniocentesis, CVS or whole blood which increses the risk of misdiagnosis.

We are the first and only facility offering non-invasive prenatal paternity test in Ghana. Our tests are performed in AABB/ISO17025 accredited laboratory by scientific staff with many years of DNA analysis experience. For further information, consultation and pricing call +233-302-932267 or write to us at info@dnacenetrghana.com.
