Penta Marker Screening

Extended First Trimester Penta Marker Screening is used to detect chromosomal defects (Trisomy 13, 18, 21) in fetuses. Penta Marker screening assessment is based on multiple markers— Free Beta Human Chrorionic Gonadotrophin ( FBHCG), Alpha-fetoprotien( AFP), Pregnancy Associated Plasma Protien A ( PAPP-A), Placental growth factor (PIGF), Dimeric Inhibin A

Non Invasive Pre Natal Testing

Non-invasive prenatal Screening (NIPS) is a prenatal screening test to detect any chromosomal abnormality or birth defect in the fetus. NIPS works by examining the small fragments of DNA – known as cell free DNA (cfDNA) - floating in the mother's blood. It is usually performed after 9 weeks of pregnancy and has a higher accuracy rate than similar screening tests.

Quadruple Marker Screening

The Quad Marker Screening Test (Quad Screen) is a maternal blood test administered in pregnancy, typically between the 15th and 20th weeks of pregnancy. Similar to the Triple Screen, the Quad Marker Screening provides markers for certain abnormalities and birth defects.

Triple Marker

Triple Screen measures three substances in blood: AFP, uE3(estriol) and hCG. It leads to the detection of:

Chromosomal Micro Array

The human body contains genetic information that is bundled into packages called chromosomes. Any change in the genetic combinations, like addition or deletion within chromosomes or of the chromosomes, can cause medical conditions like birth defects, developmental delays, autism and other health issues.

QF-PCR

Quantitative Fluorescent Polymerase Chain Reaction (QF-PCR) is a major breakthrough in the field of prenatal screening. It eliminates the need to culture fetal cells thereby allowing rapid diagnosis of some selected chromosomal anomalies.

When is PNS done?

overview

Prenatal Screening test is usually recommended for pregnant women from the first trimester of pregnancy to check the baby’s normal growth and development.

In the first trimester biochemical screening tests can be done between 9 weeks and 13 weeks and can stretch for another 6 days too

Nuchal translucency (NT) ultrasound test is performed between 11 and 13 weeks of pregnancy to check for neural tube defects

If the to-be mother misses her 1st trimester biochemical screening, she can opt for a triple or a quadruple marker in the 2nd trimester (15-20 weeks)
