Panorama™ is the most accurate and complete non-invasive prenatal screening test (NIPT) that currently exists. It presents no danger to the mother or the baby and delivers more accuracy than any other NIPTs.
Panorama™ gives you a personalized risk score and informs you if your baby is at high risk or low risk for certain common chromosomal abnormalities such as Trisomy 21, Trisomy 18, Trisomy 13 and Monosomy X.
Panorama™ uses a simple blood sample from the mother to look at the baby’s DNA in order to see if there is evidence of certain chromosomal abnormalities that could affect the baby’s health. If available, the baby’s father can provide a cheek swab to increase the chance Panorama™ will be able to give you an accurate result.
You can get your Panorama™ test results within 15 business days.
Panorama™ delivers more accuracy and outperforms the results obtained by other NIPTs or conventional screening methods that can lead to a relatively high number of false positive and false negative results.
Diagnostic tests such as amniocentesis or chorionic villus sampling (CVS) have a slight risk for pregnancy complications including miscarriage. For these reasons, many mothers choose instead the test Panorama ™ that offers peace of mind for parents
It is important to remind you that Panorama™ is a screening test and is not meant to give a definitive diagnosis on the state of the fetus that you are carrying.
This test detects most cases of missing or extra copies of chromosomes tested, but it cannot detect 100% of cases.
There is also a remote possibility that no results can be obtained from your original sample. In most of these cases, we will recommend another sample.
The Panorama™ test is intended for all women as early as 9* weeks gestation.
Some women have a higher chance of their baby being affected with certain conditions because of their age, their family histories, abnormal ultrasound findings or blood test results. Non-Invasive Prenatal Test (NIPT) like the Panorama™ test is recommended.
However, it is not intended for women carrying more than one baby (twins or triplets), gestational carriers, women who received an oocyte donation or who have received a bone marrow transplant.
If you have concerns, the first step is to talk with your doctor. He/she will be able to answer your questions about the different options available so you can find your peace of mind.
