At Genesis Genetics, we offer two options for prenatal genetic testing:
Non-Invasive Prenatal Testing (NIPT)
The TriScreen Non-Invasive Prenatal Test (NIPT) is an accurate, early prenatal screen for Down syndrome and other common chromosomal conditions. The test only involves a simple blood draw from the pregnant mother and can be undertaken from 10 weeks’ gestational age.
For more information on NIPT, watch this short video:
Prenatal Aneuploidy Screening (PAS)
The Prenatal Aneuploidy Screening (PAS), also known as miscarriage testing, utilised by Genesis Genetics, is the first of its kind in South Africa, where advanced molecular technology is employed to rapidly and accurately screen products of conception (POCs) for abnormal chromosome numbers (aneuploidies), and large genetic deletions and/or duplications of chromosomal material.
