Congratulations on your pregnancy! Pregnancy is an exciting time, but it can also be filled with questions and concerns about the health of your developing baby. Most babies are born healthy. However there is always a small risk for genetic conditions to occur, regardless of age or family history. ClariTest, a non-invasive prenatal screen, can be an important step in building your family and can provide you with valuable information and peace of mind as you plan for your future.
ClariTest™, a non-invasive prenatal screen, can be an important step in building your family and can provide you with valuable information and peace of mind as you plan for your future. ClariTest™ is a simple blood test that screens for the most common chromosome abnormalities caused by extra or missing genetic information in the baby’s DNA including Down syndrome, trisomy 18, trisomy 13, monosomy X, and certain microdeletions.
Today there are a number of genetic testing options available for expectant women and their healthcare providers. ClariTest may provide a clearer picture of chromosomal health—detecting even small abnormalities with a high degree performance, including a low false positive rate compared to other NIPTs, and the lowest test failure rate in the industry. ClariTest can have “false negative” or “false positive” results. Diagnostic tests, such as CVS and amniocentesis, provide definitive diagnostic information and are recommended to confirm any abnormal NIPT result.
