Prenatal testing for chromosomal abnormalities
January 5th, 2017

Prenatal tests are medical tests that you get during pregnancy.  The MaterniT® 21 PLUS laboratory-developed test can tell you if you are having a boy or girl and screen for both common and rare chromosomal abnormalities. This prenatal test is usually given in the first trimester and is not invasive.  The test screens for trisomy 21 (Down Syndrome), trisomy 18 (Edwards Syndrome), trisomy 13 (Patau Syndrome) and many other conditions that can affect your baby’s health.

Sequenom Laboratories has a rich history of innovation. We were the first to offer noninvasive prenatal testing (NIPT) to analyze cell-free fetal DNA circulating in maternal blood. With the trust and confidence placed in our laboratory-developed tests, NIPT has become a standard for prenatal noninvasive genetic testing without the risk of miscarriage associated with invasive prenatal testing procedures.
