This test is designed to give you a full body of information on any chromosomal abnormalities linked or translated to a fetus.
In addition, this test reveals a person’s risk of developing certain diseases, allowing for preventive measures and lifestyle changes.
The test can be used for screening purposes.
NIPT stands for Non-Invasive Pregnancy Testing. This test is performed by testing a pregnant woman’s blood from 10 weeks of pregnancy through delivery to determine if the fetus might carrier any chromosomal abnormalities listed below.
PGT stands for Preimplantation Genetic Testing. PGT is a screening test that can be performed on embryos created via in vitro fertilization (IVF) to genetically analyze the embryos before transfer.
One of the most common reasons that an embryo transfer does not result in a pregnancy is due to abnormal embryo genetics. PGT can ensure that the embryo selected for transfer has the correct number of chromosomes, thereby reducing the chances of a failed IVF cycle and reducing the chance of miscarriage.
For NIPT (Non-Invasive Pregnancy Testing), we screen for the following conditions:
*Trisomy 21 (Down syndrome)
*Trisomy 13 (Patau syndrome)
*Trisomy 18 (Edwards syndrome)
*Triple X syndrome
*Fetus’s sex with high accuracy
*Identifying genetic disorders early in life
*Allowing for early treatment and management
*Enabling informed decisions about healthcare and family planning
*Guide treatment decisions a provide a sense of relief for uncertainty
Anybody can order this test and follow up with their healthcare providers. We have some genetic counselors who can go over your lab results and guide you about the next steps to take based on your results.
You can order the test directly by going to our online store or from your healthcare provider’s office.
*If the test is ordered directly through us, we will mail you a collection kit and a return label along with the collection and return instructions.
*If the test is ordered by your healthcare provider’s office, we will mail the collection kits and instructions to their office.
We follow the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) guidelines for reporting.
Any findings will be interpreted as follows:
However, it is important to note that genetic testing has limitations and may not be able to detect all genetic defects. The genetic results do not necessarily mean that you will develop a condition. It identifies the genes or mutations that increase your risk of developing a particular condition.
-Blood sample in EDTA for NIPT
-Cells for embryo for PGT(Four to eight cell trophectoderm biopsy)
A few cells are removed from a developing embryo several days after fertilization, and these samples are then sent for testing. The embryos themselves are frozen and remain at your IVF center.
