Date:11/3/2011

The MaterniT21 LDT is indicated for use in pregnant women at high-risk for carrying a fetus with Down syndrome and can accurately test maternal blood as early as 10 weeks of gestation. In the United States, there are an estimated 750,000 such high-risk pregnancies each year.

A clinical validation study leading to the introduction of the MaterniT21 LDT was recently published online in the journal Genetics in Medicine.  The results of the multi-center study demonstrated high accuracy, detecting nearly all (99.1%) positive cases of fetal trisomy 21 with a very low false positive rate.

"The launch of the MaterniT21 LDT has been the culmination of many years of effort to develop a safer way for clinicians to assess the risk of a fetal abnormality in pre
