Non-Invasive Prenatal Testing

As you prepare for an addition to your family, let LabSolutions help you to make the best decisions for your family. Our Non-Invasive Prenatal Testing provides accurate information on the chromosomal health of your new child without the risks associated with invasive procedures.

What is Chromosomal Health?

Each embryo should have 23 pairs of chromosomes that house the genes utilized for fetal development as well as the overall development of the person that is growing inside of the mother’s belly. Abnormal chromosomal health could mean minor or major impacts on the development of the child. Prenatal testing allows the parents to know this information in advance, so the most informed decision can be made, and allow the parents to seek advanced advice from medical professionals if desired.

Who to Test?

The DISCOVER test offers parents-to-be the option to obtain important information about the health of their developing baby, quickly, accurately and with little to no risk to their pregnancy.

This screening test is usually indicated for pregnant women who meet any of the following criteria:

  • Patient is considered to be of advanced maternal age at the time of delivery.
  • Patient ultrasound shows concerns or abnormalities with fetal growth and/or development.
  • Patient has a personal or family history suggestive of trisomies 21, 18, 13, or sex chromosome aneuploidies/anomalies.
  • Patient has an abnormal or “positive” serum screen.

How to interpret your DISCOVER™ results?

Results tell the provider whether or not trisomies 21, 18, 13 or sex chromosome abnormalities (if ordered) are highly likely to be present in pregnancy. In the case of a positive result, the provider will discuss what the results mean to your pregnancy as well as further testing options to consider.

Your test report will include one of three possible results for chromosomes 21, 18, and 13:

No Aneuploidy Detected

No Aneuploidy Detected—means the expected number of chromosomes was found.

Aneuploidy Detected

Aneuploidy Detected—means too many or too few copies of one of the chromosomes have been identified. This can indicate a chromosome abnormality. Your provider may advise a diagnostic test for confirmation

Significantly Rare Cases

In significantly rare cases, no result is possible. Your healthcare provider will discuss next steps with you.

All it takes is a simple, in-office blood draw to have access to the results you need for your family.

Committed To Research

With its superior technology, the DISCOVER™ test provides clinical evidence showing across-the-whole genome analysis in a real-world population. The performance of the DISCOVER™ prenatal test was evaluated in a major scientific study, which included more than 60 leading US medical research and teaching institutions.
