During a woman’s pregnancy, some of the baby’s DNA crosses the placenta into the mother’s bloodstream. GeneSyte is a prenatal test that involves taking a blood sample from the mother and testing for the baby’s DNA. Scientists look for changes in chromosome numbers, checking for conditions which are caused by extra or missing chromosomes. At Genea, we can test all chromosomes but some of the most commonly aware diseases we test for are Down, Edwards and Patau syndromes.
GeneSyte can also report on the sex of a baby.
NIPT stands for Non-Invasive Prenatal Testing, it is a general term. GeneSyte is a form of NIPT. When we originally launched GeneSyte, we referred to it as NIPS, which stands for Non-Invasive Prenatal Screening which is the more actuate description.
Anytime from 10 weeks gestation.
However, this test works well in combination with the 12 week ultrasound. The 12 week ultrasound looks for the healthy growth of a baby, GeneSyte is looking for the chromosome health of the baby which is just as important. It is a two-step procedure.
Blood samples are tested at our flagship Genea laboratory in Kent Street Sydney. We were the first laboratory to conduct NIPS testing in Australia.
Genea has one of the fastest reporting times with an average reporting time of three to five working days.
$445. At Genea, we also offer free genetic counselling to all our patients. Our counsellors are highly qualified, specifically in genetics and pregnancy.
Any doctor may order GeneSyte. GPs, obstetricians and clinicians at ultrasound units often do. Any referral is accepted, even if a doctor doesn’t have our specific request/referral form.
There are other products on the market that sound very similar but quite simply, they are not. The most important thing a patient wants to know is that if she has her blood collected, she will have a result. Some competitors have a 'failure to report' result 3-5% of the time. Our success of reporting is greater than 99.8%. Which means, if we fail to report, we do so less than 0.2% of the time.
At the end of the day, GeneSyte offers parents to be- peace of mind. It’s reliable, fast and it is the most accurate prenatal testing on the market.
My team has a combined 25 years' experience in prenatal early pregnancy analysis, coupled with experience in genetic counselling- what we offer is world leading.
