At Seeds of Innocence, we are offering pregnancies with healthy
babies by using our latest technology PGS/PGD where we can detect the
chromosomal abnormalities with accuracy and hence can save the next generation
from having birth defects.
Next generation sequencing, as the name has been given to our
Genekart symbolizes the healthy and aneuploidy free babies to parents with
genetic disorders. We recently had a blood report of quadruple test indicating
high risk pregnancy. The patient was counseled for NIPT which is 98% accurate test for
estimating the chance or the risk that the baby has Down syndrome. NIPT or non invasive prenatal testing was done by having
maternal blood. The result was found to be negative.
Although both tests involve a sample of maternal
blood, NIPT analyses the cell-free DNA in the mother’s blood, quadruple test
analyses the mother’s hormone levels. NIPT for Down syndrome works by
analyzing the DNA fragments present in the maternal plasma during pregnancy. Each
chromosome has sequences of DNA that are specific to that particular
chromosome. By analyzing and counting all the DNA sequences that
link or map to each individual chromosome the syndrome or aneuploidy can be
detected and the pregnancy can be accordingly dealt with.
