Maternal Serum Screening
Delivers Clarity and
Reassurance for Healthy Outcomes
What is Maternal Serum Screening?
Maternal serum screening (MSS) is a set of tests that helps pregnant women identify if their pregnancy has an increased risk of genetic disorders, birth defects, and pregnancy complications. The tests can be taken during the first trimester between 9 – 13 weeks 6 days and during the second trimester between 15 – 21 weeks 6 days.
MSS can help detect indicators of birth defects like neural tube defects, chromosomal anomalies such as Down Syndrome, and pregnancy complications like Pre-Eclampsia.
Patients in the high-risk category can opt for the Reflex NIPT test which provides a safe, accessible, accurate, non-invasive modality with >99% detection rate and false positive rate.
Why do you need this test?
To detect high-risk pregnancies and fetal abnormalities in a timely manner
For early detection of birth defects and chromosomal anomalies in families with a history of these conditions
To identify neural tube defects and pre-eclampsia in mother
