Fetal Aneuploidy Screening
First- or second-tier screening test for the most common fetal aneuploidy disorders: trisomy 13, trisomy 18, trisomy 21 (Down syndrome), Turner syndrome, sex chromosome aneuploidies (XXX, XXY, XYY), and triploidy. Testing may be offered to pregnant women from 9 weeks 0 days gestation to term. Test is not recommended for women who are carrying more than one fetus or have a known twin demise, patients who have used an egg donor, surrogates who have not used their own egg, or women who have had an allogeneic bone marrow transplant.

Transport 20 mL maternal blood in Cell-Free DNA BCT tube. (Min: 16 mL)

Refer to report.
Performed by non-ARUP Laboratory
Testing utilizes a single-nucleotide polymorphism (SNP)/informatics-based approach to detect fetal copy number for the five chromosomes responsible for most 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. Test should not be considered diagnostic. It is recommended that any positive result be confirmed by amniocentesis or CVS.
