What is exactly included in this Combo?
The prenatal package includes a combination of three advanced prenatal tests which are:
1. Non-Invasive Prenatal Paternity Test
2. Advanced Baby Gender Test
3. Prenatal Screening for Chromosomal Abnormalities Test
Below please find a brief description of each one of these tests.
Non-Invasive Prenatal Paternity Test
Not sure who the father is? EasyDNA is proud to offer the most advanced non-invasive prenatal paternity test on the market with a 99.9% accuracy rate. Through the use of Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) technology within a state of the art laboratory, this highly advanced test is unparalleled in its level of accuracy, analysing over 5000 genetic markers. Due to the higher accuracy level of the test, the test offers lower re-draw rates than other tests on the market.
Advanced Baby Gender Test
Is it a boy or a girl? EasyDNA’s advanced baby gender test offers an unbeatable accuracy of 98% or more and eliminates any chance of DNA contamination since the blood sample required is taken via a standard venipuncture procedure (collection of blood from a vein). Contrarily, other tests on the market are using alternative sampling methods which carry a much higher risk of sample contamination. In addition, the sample is tested using a technique called Real-Time Polymerase Chain Reaction (RT-PCR) that can amplify small amounts of DNA to easily detectable levels. This use of RT-PCR helps scientists to deliver highly accurate results.
Prenatal Screening for Chromosomal Abnormalities Test
EasyDNA offers the most comprehensive non-invasive prenatal genetic screening test available which screens for Down’s syndrome as well as 17 other chromosomal abnormalities. The test analyses the foetal DNA in the maternal blood sample to establish the ratio of foetal chromosomes. Results indicate whether trisomies 21, 18, 13 or sex chromosome abnormalities are present. When compared to other invasive methods, such as chronic villus sampling or amniocentesis, this DNA test carries no risk of miscarrying, since it only requires a medical blood draw from the expectant mother.
Pricing and Turnaround Time
All of the above non-invasive prenatal tests are being offered for the discounted price of R19695. In addition, the results for this combo are available within 10 to 14 working days from receipt of your samples at the laboratory.
Please note that a trained professional is required to collect the blood sample required for this test.
