PRENATAL DIAGNOSIS


Prenatal diagnosis employs a variety of techniques to determine the health and condition of an unborn fetus in high risk pregnancies. It is evident that more than 50% of first trimester spontaneous abortions are due to chromosomal abnormalities. The most common cause of spontaneous abortion is numerical chromosome imbalances (aneuploidies), particularly of chromosomes 13, 14, 15, 16, 18, 21, 22 and X. Aneuploidies of five particular chromosomes (13, 18, 21, X, Y) account for 80-95% clinically relevant cytogenetics abnormalities that lead to infants born with congenital defects.

Risk of Chromosome Abnormalities Increase with Maternal age

As a company we believe in philosophy of adoption of advanced genetics technologies with clinical annotation (medical knowledge) that can improve clinical outcomes for patients. This approach has already been proved beneficial for patient’s undergoing diagnosis.
