A simple screening test that provides reliable answers about the health of a developing fetus.
Down syndrome (trisomy 21) is associated with developmental and intellectual delays, ranging from mild to severe
Edwards syndrome (trisomy 18) is a condition that causes severe developmental delays and birth defects
Patau syndrome (trisomy 13) is a condition that causes severe intellectual disability and physical defects.
Additional screening for the following sex chromosome conditions can be requested at no additional cost:
- Turner syndrome (monosomy X)
- Triple X (XXX)
- Klinefelter syndrome (XXY)
- Jacobs syndrome (XYY)
Optional screening for microdeletion syndromes and all chromosome analysis (for trisomies) is available at an additional cost.
myPrenatal test is:
Routine, non-invasive blood draw, from the mother, requiring just one tube of blood (7–10 ml).
Directly analyzes cell-free fetal and maternal DNA with our proprietary Safer algorithm; very low failure rate (0.1%).
Test as early as 10 weeks (gestational age). No limitations regarding ethnicity, BMI, ART or egg donor cases.
Results reported to provider 3-5 days after sample receipt. (Time to report may vary based on partner laboratory providing the test.)
A report with your results is provided to your physician with 2 possible outcomes
- No aneuploidy detected — No extra or missing chromosomes were detected
- Aneuploidy detected — extra or missing chromosomes were detected
Positive predictive value (PPV) is included in the report. PPV is the probability that the result is a true positive and the fetus is affected.
“Aneuploidy detected” results should be confirmed by an invasive procedure if a more definitive diagnosis is desired.
Order the test
Get started by talking to a physician or genetic counselor so they can order the test
Have your blood drawn. A sample size of 7-10 ml is all that is needed.
Sample is processed
We process your sample at our CLIA-certified lab
Your report is ready
Your results are delivered to your healthcare provider
Talk to your physician or genetic counselor about your results, especially when there is a positive finding.
Superior technology for informative non-invasive prenatal screening
myPrenatal uses an advanced technology called “Massively Parallel Sequencing” to analyze millions of DNA fragments per sample and accurately count the number of chromosomes present. It then uses a special Safer calculation method to determine if there are too many or too few copies of these chromosomes in your baby.
- Superior technology — Strong clinical evidence showing across-the-genome analysis in a real-world population
- Comprehensive analysis — Provides option of comprehensive sex chromosome analysis
- Microdeletion and other aneuploidies option — Additional information on selected microdeletions and other aneuploidies (all chromosome analysis for trisomies) is also available
