The parentage test fee is assessed regardless of whether or not the known parent is tested. We strongly encourage the known parent to participate in the test; no additional laboratory fees are incurred to include this parent in the test.
**Prenatal parentage test
The mother will need to consult an OBGYN for collection of amniotic fluid or CVS. The collection facility should contact the OSU Human Identity Testing laboratory at 1-800-299-7919 prior to collection. This contact is necessary to insure that all the necessary paperwork is available and that the collector understands how to complete our paperwork and how to transport the sample(s) to our laboratory. We can test uncultured amniotic fluid, CVS samples, or cultured cells. Although failures with uncultured fluid or CVS are infrequent, we do not have the facilities to culture these samples.
Fees associated with sample collection outside of our facility are the responsibility of the client and the collection facility unless previously arranged.
