DISORDERS DETECTED BY TRISOMY TEST +
*If a blood sample cannot be processed by the laboratory in accordance with the principles of good laboratory practice, or if the analytical results do not provide an answer to the diagnostic question, the laboratory offers a repeat examination based on the same blood sample free of charge. Under the circumstances, the period for the delivery of test results will change from 5 to 8 days (this generally applies to about 10% of all samples).
Due to biological and technological limitations, the accuracy rate related to microdeletion syndromes is lower compared to trisomy 21, 18, and 13. Given the generally low occurrence of microdeletions in the population, there are no studies that would sufficiently validate the actual accuracy of TRISOMY test with regard to these syndromes.
TRISOMY TEST PROCEDURE
