Intellectual disability that ranges from mild to severe, characteristic facial features, low muscle tone, and increased risk for heart defects.
 

EDWARDS SYNDROME (TRISOMY 18)
Affects 1 in 5,000 babies

Slow intrauterine growth, heart defects, multiple abnormalities (including defects of lungs, kidneys, stomach) and severe intellectual disability.

 

PATAU SYNDROME (TRYSOMY 13)
Affects 1 in 12,00 babies

Severe intellectual disability, heart defects, brain or spinal cord abnormalities, poorly developed eyes, extra fingers or toes, cleft lip, and low muscle tone.

Additional Screening

You and your physician can decide to screen for conditions that are less common or less serious, including abnormalities involving the sex chromosomes, selected microdeletions and all chromosome analysis (all trisomies, including 9 and 16.)

myPrenatal is non-invasive and poses no risk to your baby. Testing is:

i check
Safe

Routine, non-invasive blood draw, from the mother, requiring just one tube of blood (7-10 ml).

i check
Accurate

Directly analyzes cell-free fetal and maternal DNA with a proprietary algorithm; very low failure rate (0.1%).

i check
Accurate

Test as early as ten weeks (gestational age). No limitations regarding ethnicity, Assisted Reproductive Technology, BMI, or egg donor cases.

i check
Fast

Results reported to you and your provider 3 to 5 days after sample receipt at lab.

Next Section

Your results are reported to you and your physician with three possible outcomes.

We have a world class clinical panel to support physicians with interpretation.

ANEUPLODY NOT DETECTED
Negative

A negative myPrenatal test result will say “Aneuploidy not detected,” indicating a decreased risk of an affected pregnancy. This reassuring result suggests that no extra or missing chromosomes were detected.

ANEUPLOIDY DETECTED
Positive

A positive myPrenatal test result indicates extra or missing chromosomes were detected. In this case, genetic counseling is recommended to discuss diagnostic testing options.

INDETERMINATE OR UNINFORMATIVE
No Results

Our test has the lowest failure rate in the industry. A small percent of women (~0.1%) having myPrenatal will not receive a test result. Reasons for an uninformative result include poor sample quality and insufficient fetal DNA in the blood sample.

If your result outcome reports something unusual, talk to your physician or genetic counselor about a follow-up diagnostic procedure to confirm the results.
