Safe Prenatal Testing with a Routine Blood Draw? A Reality!

We have great news for newly pregnant mommas!

 Natera, a genetic testing company, has released a new NON-INVASIVE prenatal screening test, Panorama.

Panorama is a safe and very accurate non-invasive prenatal test that screens for common genetic diseases. “Panorama is the only NIPT that uses Single-Nucleotide Polymorphisms (SNPs) to differentiate between and analyze both the maternal and fetal DNA. It is a sophisticated blood test that examines placental DNA in the maternal bloodstream to determine whether your baby is at risk of Down syndrome, Edwards syndrome (trisomy 18), Patau syndrome (trisomy 13) or a sex chromosome abnormality, such as Turner syndrome.”
Through a simple blood draw that can be performed in a doctor’s office, Panorama can screen for chromosomal abnormalities as early as 9 weeks gestation. And great news for those of us who are more impatient than others, the test can determine the baby’s gender with the results available within 7-10 calendar days.

This is amazing news for those women who would normally select more invasive procedures, like amniocentesis that can result in a miscarriage or an infection.

Based on the recent survey of 500 new and expecting mothers, the majority of women are anxious before receiving prenatal resting results but after the testing comes up, they feel relieved, excited, calm and better prepared.  79% of moms surveyed decided to learn the baby’s gender before he or she was born. 

The results of the survey can be viewed in the Natera Infographic below.

Natera_Infograph_cut-2 Natera_Infograph_Cut-3 Natera_Infograph_Cut-1
 This survey was sponsored by the new Panorama™ NIPT, created by Natera, that enables women in the first trimester of pregnancy to be screened for more than a dozen leading genetic diseases as early as 9 weeks gestation. Additionally, the test has an optional gender screening that is >99% accurate.  Because the test is performed with a routine blood draw, it does not come with a risk of miscarriage that more invasive tests (like amniocentesis) carry.
