Over 50% of first trimester miscarriages are due to chromosomal abnormalities. Help your patient find answers.

Next generation sequencing (NGS) based

  • no cell culture required
  • higher results rate than traditional kayrotyping
  • no false negatives due to maternal contamination
  • 24 chromosome screening
  • Rapid turn around time (7-10 business days)
  • Easy to use kits can be stored at room temperature in clinic or at home
  • Genetic counselling included
  • Free shipping (pre-paid and pre-addressed)

Advantages to using NGS vs traditional karyotyping

Increased accuracy due to:

  • better detection of small deletions and duplications (our state-of-the-art technology detects gains and losses with the highest resolution available (~3.0Mb).
  • better detection of true mosaicism
  • much lower failure rate (failure rate for karyotyping can be over 40%)
  • Exclusion of maternal DNA from the analysis (up to one-third of kayrotyping results may be inaccurate due to the presence of maternal DNA)
