There is a certain amount of foetal DNA in maternal blood already in the early stages of pregnancy. Using a genetic screening laboratory test, it is possible to isolate this foetal DNA and analyse it to determine the sex of the foetus and detect whether foetal chromosome aberrations are present.
TRISOMY test +
Using a non-invasive, safe and painless method, it is possible to learn a lot more information based solely on a sample of maternal blood. Compared to standard TRISOMY test screening, TRISOMY test + is a premium genetic laboratory screening test that can detect a greater number of chromosomal abnormalities.
Who is the test for?
TRISOMY test can be requested by any pregnant woman who wants to be sure for the rest of her pregnancy that her fetus is not affected by the trisomy types the test is designed to detect, i.e. trisomies 21, 18, and 13.
Information for professionals
TRISOMY test is based on analysing the whole genome sequence of free foetal DNA isolated from the peripheral blood of a pregnant woman. The test is characterised by high sensitivity and specificity.
