Providing further clarity through prenatal diagnostic testing.
Knowledge is empowering.
Follow up on the knowledge gained from prenatal ultrasound or noninvasive prenatal testing with the NextView™ line of invasive laboratory-developed tests, which provide you and your physician several options for a highly accurate prenatal diagnosis.
Pregnancies can be full of worries. Your genetic testing should not be one.
Why would I need a prenatal diagnostic test?+ –
Prenatal diagnosis is a multi-step process used to discover your baby’s genetic condition as early as possible during your pregnancy. This testing is usually offered to women who have a higher risk of having a baby with a genetic condition.
Which test is right for me and my baby?+ –
Your doctor will explain the benefits and risks of each test and help you decided which test is right for you. The two most common invasive procedures are chorionic villus sampling (CVS) and amniocentesis which rely on collecting a small sample of fetal cells from the placental or amniotic fluid for examination.
What can I learn from a NextView™ test?+ –
The sample cells from CVS or amniotic fluid from amniocentesis can be used for a number of different tests using advanced technologies to evaluate your baby’s chromosomes in ways that are not possible with other test methods.
No test is perfect+ –
Genetic counseling, clinical correlation, and parental testing are recommended. The health care provider is responsible for the use of this information in the management of their patient.
