Why order the non-invasive Prenatal test?
There are many reasons why our prenatal non-invasive test to detect chromosomal abnormalities is your best option. Unlike other invasive methods, such the Amniocentesis or the CVS Chorionic Villus sampling, the non-invasive test is risk free and 100% safe.
We only need 10ml of standard maternal blood sample, therefore the mother and the unborn child won’t be at any risk of miscarriage or leakage of amniotic fluid or any other potential damage to the baby’s limb.
Using the latest technology in genome sequencing and four different proprietary bioinformatics analysis pipelines, this test will tell with a very high level of accuracy if the baby has the Chromosomal abnormalities listed below.
Additionally, the test allows you to discover the gender of the baby at no extra cost, completely free! (If you are interested in this option, please make sure this is indicated when ordering the test).
Which Abnormalities are detected in the prenatal?
A trisomy is a type of aneuploidy (an abnormal number of chromosomes) in which there are three chromosomes instead of two.
|Trisomy 9||Patau Syndrome (Trisomy 13)||Trisomy 16|
|Edward’s syndrome (Trisomy 18)||Down Syndrome (Trisomy 21)||Trisomy 22|
The test will screen also the below abnormalities with no extra cost.
SEX CHROMOSOME ABNORMALITIES
A sex chromosome aneuploidy is a numeric abnormality of an X or Y chromosome, with the addition or loss of an entire X or Y chromosome.
|Turner’s syndrome (XO)||Triple X (XXX)|
|Klinefelter’s syndrome (XXY)||Jacob Syndrome (XYY)|
DELETION & MICRODELETION SYNDROMES
Deletion syndromes are a group of clinically recognisable disorders caused by the deletion of a small chromosomal segment.
|16p12.2-p11.2 deletion||1p36 deletion||2q33.1 deletion|
|Angelman Syndrome||Cri-du-chat Syndrome||DiGeorge Syndrome 2|
|Jacobsen Syndrome (11q23)||Prader-Willi Syndrome||Van der Woude Syndrome|
Sample Collection for Prenatal Syndromes test
The collections process requires a standard blood sample from the mother of just 10ml. This process does not require inserting a needle into the uterus, therefore it is non-invasive and risk-free for the mother and baby.
The blood sample of the risk-free prenatal screening for chromosomal abnormalities can be taken by any nurse or qualified person.
Once the blood sample has arrived at the laboratory the scientists will use advanced genome sequencing technology and 4 different proprietary bioinformatics analysis pipelines to analyse the foetal DNA found in the mother’s blood. It can confirm or exclude the above genetic abnormalities like Down’s Syndrome
Results will be ready in between 10 to 14 working days, starting from the day the blood sample arrives to the laboratory.

Important note: this test is considered a very accurate screening for Trisomy 21 and one of the most advanced in the market. However is it important to note that the screening test is not a diagnostic test and it does not screen all the chromosomal conditions. It cannot replace diagnostic test such as Amniocentesis and Chorionic villus testing however, this test can help women that do not want to go undergo an invasive test.
