About Vangenes Inc.
Vangenes is an independently operated central laboratory focusing on the non-invasive prenatal paternity testing in California (California Corporate Number: C4277470). Vangenes was founded in 2013 to develop and commercialize diagnostic tests for reproductive health in China. Utilizing the advanced well-known platform of Next Generation Sequencing, the Vangenes team developed a high standard lab processes from sampling ,sequencing to data analysis on non-invasive prenatal DNA test (Related Research Publications by Vangenes ).
Vangenes has established two transnational central laboratories for Non-Invasive Prenatal Paternity Test (NIPPT) since 2015, one in China and one in the United States (Press Release: From NIPT to NIPPT). And Vangenes also holds a patent for non-invasive prenatal paternity test (see the granted patent)
In the past three years, Vangenes Labs have completed more than 20,000 NIPPT cases in global. With the help of many reliable local vendors, we are extending to provide our NIPPT services to people in need in more regions.
How to Choose a Legit Agency for Non-Invasive Prenatal Paternity Testing
If you are sure that you need the non-invasive prenatal paternity testing service, when you search on the Internet, you will find that there are many websites saying that they all provide this testing service. The way to distinguish between scammers and legitimate institutions is also very simple. First, "Location, Location, Location", look at their addresses. Because paternity testing needs to process blood samples, all testing experiments must be carried out in laboratories that are qualified to handle biohazards, then the laboratory must be in a hospital, clinical center or medical research building. You should avoid companies that can’t find the address on the website or the address is just a P.O. box or ordinary office building. In online sales, another common method of fraud is to forge some positive customer reviews to attract new customers. This also requires vigilance. Try to avoid paying by phone, which is also a simple way to prevent fraud. The easiest way is to find someone you know who has received basic medical training, whether it is a doctor, nurse or phlebotomist, to help you make a judgment,
Because this is a high-tech and complex testing, the development of this prenatal DNA testing technology is an accumulation process. A laboratory capable of providing this testing service should, at least like our company, have related academic publications, patents and related industry news reports. Of course, a further step is that this laboratory has also purchased various accreditation programs. But it should be noted that if you need to use the results of non-invasive prenatal paternity testing in court to establish parentage, you should not order this testing service yourself. The best way is to consult the local Child Support Agency or a family law attorney in your state first.
We have controlled our testing costs through the following methods, ensuring that the price of our basic standard testing service is within $900, and allowing us to use the best DNA sequencing platforms to provide credible testing results:
First of all, our R&D is completed in China in 2015, and the R&D expenditure has been withdrawn in the Asian market, so we no longer need to share R&D expenses in the price of the services we provide now.
Second, we tried our best to control our rental costs and the cost of equipment depreciation. The laboratory we are currently renting is a biotech incubator funded by the Los Angeles County and charitable donations (Related News Report). The rent and equipment depreciation costs are sponsored and subsidized. For instrument depreciation costs, we only need to be responsible for the warranty costs of Illumina DNA sequencing machine. It greatly reduces our operating costs.
Third, we need customers to pay for blood sample collection fee by themselves, so that we save the cost of distribution to the clinic agency.
Briefly, if you can wait until the child is born before doing a paternity test, usually through your local child support agency, you can get free DNA testing services. If you need non-invasive prenatal paternity testing services, have a limited budget, and can secure a clinic or medical professionals to do the blood work for you on your end, you can consider ordering our testing services. If you have extra budget, you should first choose the agency with the most accreditations. Of course, we also welcome you to choose us as a double check.
Accuracy is our top priority. Significance of our work is to help you eliminate the fear of uncertainty. You trust us, We won't let you down.
