Non-Invasive Prenatal Testing for Fetal Aneuploidy (Panorama)
Ordering Recommendation
Screens for trisomy 13, 18, 21; Turner syndrome; and triploidy. Recommended for women at high risk for a fetal chromosomal aneuploidy. This includes women who 1) are 35 years or older at delivery, 2) have had a previous child with aneuploidy, 3) have a fetus with identified ultrasound anomalies associated with the above aneuploidies, or 4) have screened positive by maternal serum screening testing in the current pregnancy.
Targeted sequencing with SNPs
12-14 days  
New York DOH Approval Status
This test is New York DOH approved.
Specimen Required
Patient Preparation
Whole blood in Cell-Free DNA BCT Tube.  All specimens must be collected using the NIPT ANEU kit (ARUP Supply #50223). Available online through eSupply or contacting ARUP Client Services at (800) 522-2787.
Required Specimen: Maternal specimens must be collected in 2 Cell-Free DNA BCT tubes.
Optional Specimen: Paternal specimens must be collected in buccal brush.  
Specimen Preparation
Transport 20 mL maternal blood in Cell-Free DNA BCT Tube (ARUP Supply #50223) and optional paternal buccal brush. (Min: 16 mL) Available online through eSupply or contacting ARUP Client Services at (800) 522-2787.  A paternal specimen is requested but is not required for testing. The paternal specimen cannot be tested alone and must be provided along with the maternal blood. Do not send the buccal brush separately.  
Storage/Transport Temperature
Room temperature.  
Unacceptable Conditions
Patient History and Informed Consent for Non-Invasive Prenatal Testing (NIPT) form required. Testing utilizes a single-nucleotide polymorphism (SNP)/ informatics-based approach to detect fetal copy number for the five chromosomes responsible for the majority of live-birth aneuploidies (chromosomes 13, 18, 21, X, Y, and triploidy). This is a screening test to help identify fetuses at risk for Down Syndrome, trisomy 18, trisomy 13 and Turner Syndrome. This test should not be considered diagnostic.  It is recommended that any positive result should be confirmed by amniocentesis or CVS.  
Ambient: 5 days; Refrigerated: Unacceptable; Frozen: Unacceptable
