Some selected chromosomal abnormalities need to be diagnosed in a rapid manner. Quantitative fluorescent polymerase chain reaction (QF-PCR) is one such breakthrough fully automated technique that provides rapid diagnoses of select chromosomal anomalies by eliminating the need to culture fetal cells. QF-PCR test on total cellular DNA is used as a secondary test for confirming conditions of chromosomal trisomy, submicroscopic deletions and duplications in the chromosome.
Booking The Test
Your doctor places an order for the test.
The Products of Conception (fetal tissues, placental remains) are collected and taken to the lab.
The DNA is extracted from the POC and testing and analysis of the sample is conducted in the lab.
The results are shared within 3 days of receiving the sample..
Post-result counselling is offered to parents to understand the test results better.
QF-PCRSPEAK TO A COUNSELLOR
Please note that QFPCR can only be ordered by a physician. They would also be the only person to receive your results and will pass them along to you. If you are unable to find a physician, contact us on 1800-266-5533 & we will organise one for you at no additional cost.
This test is performed on a blood sample.
In addition, samples for the test can be obtained using the following methods:
