Vision – Non Invasive Prenatal Test

We are passionate about helping you prepare for your child’s future health, which is why we offer our Vision service; a non-invasive prenatal test for common genetic abnormalities.
Vision is a highly sensitive prenatal test that can be carried out as early as 10 weeks into pregnancy, using just one simple blood draw. Vision checks the baby’s DNA that circulates in the mother’s blood during pregnancy, measuring the number of copies present for certain chromosomes. An abnormal number of these chromosomes can indicate the presence of certain genetic conditions, including:

Vision uses VeriSeq by Illumina technology, (an automated and validated workflow including CE-IVD marked sample prep and assay software), from the world’s leading DNA sequencing company.
