Prenatal Testing

Until recently the only options available for prenatal testing were not only invasive but dangerous for both mother and baby. These types of testing, known as amniocentesis and chorionic villus sampling (CVS) involve inserting needles into the womb in order to collect samples of either amniotic fluid or of placental tissue.

Thanks to new technologies, prenatal testing is now available through a simple blood test and testing can be done as early as 14 weeks. The non-invasive prenatal DNA paternity testing is based on the comparison of genetic profiles of the fetal cells, the mother’s blood and a sample collected via cheek swab or from a forensic sample, from the alleged father(s).

Baby Gender Test

Every parent is curious about the gender of their baby from the moment they find out they are expecting. Routine ultrasounds are not able to predict gender until at least 18 weeks and sometimes gender is not disclosed.

Our non invasive screening uses analysis of DNA from fetal cells in maternal blood samples to check for the presence of Y-chromosome. Positive Y chromosome DNA test confirms the presence of a male fetus in the recent pregnancy. A negative Y chromosome DNA test confirms the presence of a female fetus in the recent pregnancy.
