Bio-Reference Laboratories, Inc. Will Offer Non-Invasive Prenatal Testing (NIPT) From Natera

Stocks in this article: BRLI

Panorama's technology analyzes, in a single reaction, 19,500 single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs), which are the most informative portions of an individual's DNA. It utilizes the NATUS [ Next-generation Aneuploidy Testing Using SNPs] algorithm, an advanced version of Natera's proprietary informatics. Panorama has been validated globally and is currently being evaluated in several other clinical trials for the detection of genetic disorders, including trisomy 21, trisomy 18, trisomy 13, monosomy X, XXY, XYY, XXX and triploidy. The test uses a simple blood draw from the mother and can be performed within the first trimester of pregnancy, as early as 9 weeks, without any risk to the fetus.
