Trisomy and its risks
Random cell division abnormalities may occur during egg maturation and in the early phases of egg fertilisation. If these processes lead ot an extra copy of one of the chromosomes, which means a particular chromosome occurs in three rather than two instances, the condition is called trisomy.
There is a certain amount of foetal DNA in maternal blood already in the early stages of pregnancy. Using a special screening laboratory test, it is possible to isolate this foetal DNA and analyse it to determine the risk of foetal trisomy (three identical chromosomes).
Consult your doctor
TRISOMY test (or any of its variants) is designed to exclude the presence of trisomy 21 (Down syndrome), trisomy 18 (Edwards syndrome), and trisomy 13 (Patau syndrome) with a high degree of accuracy. If the mother-to-be wishes to know, the test can also determine the sex of her unborn baby.
TRISOMY test, the first Slovak non-invasive prenatal test has achieved the prestigious certification marking.
marking confirms that TRISOMY test conforms to all European standards and directives that relate to this category of products and that the conformity was proven in compliance with the relevant assessment procedure.
Parents’ and doctors’ views
I was more than satisfied with the test! I received my test results within 5 days and I knew exactly what to expect. What's more, the test will tell you whether you're expecting a boy or a girl. I recommend the test by all means!
