The analysis included 85 maternal plasma samples that were previously excluded from Verinata's large, blinded, prospective validation study of singleton pregnancies.  The full singleton study results were previously published in the peer-reviewed journal, Obstetrics & Gynecology (Green Journal).  The results show that Verinata's technology correctly detected the one incidence of Down syndrome (trisomy 21) and one incidence of Edwards syndrome (trisomy 18) present within this study population.  Importantly, the study also demons
