TEST DETAILS

Description

GenoMom is a patented, non-invasive prenatal test (NIPT) used to detect specific chromosomal abnormalities in a developing fetus using cell-free fetal DNA present in maternal blood. GenoMom was developed by geneticists from Korea and launched in 2016 after a clinical trial of 4,956 cases. The results of the trial are one of the best in the region with a zero (0) false negative result and specifically developed (and clinically tested) for Asian DNA.

We highly recommend GenoMom for pregnant mothers, ages 35 years and above. This is because women of advanced maternal age are at an increased risk of producing a fetus with chromosomal abnormalities.

GenoMom can be used as early as 10 weeks gestation to test singleton and twins (identical, fraternal, and vanishing twins) for the following trisomies:

  • Trisomy 21 (Down syndrome)
  • Trisomy 18 (Edward syndrome)
  • Trisomy 13 (Patau Syndrome)
Eligibility: 12 weeks gestation
Sensitivity: 99.9%
Samples: 2 x 10ml tubes of blood from Mother
Testing timeline: 5-7 working days from receipt of samples at laboratory.
Results: Softcopy (results will be emailed).
 

Additional detections:

  • Vanishing twins
     
  • Fetal gender information (99.9% sensitivity)
     
  • Sex chromosome aneuploidy (X, XXY, XXX, XYY) (95% sensitivity)
     
  • Other autosomal trisomies (trisomy 9) and deletion syndromes available

Limitations:

  • Testing can be performed as early as 10 weeks gestation. However, we recommend taking the test at 12 weeks.
     
  • GenoMom is a highly accurate screening test, but is not a diagnostic test. Positive results should be confirmed by chorionic villus sampling (CVS) or amniocentesis.
     
  • GenoMom cannot completely rule out the possibility of fetal chromosomal abnormality, even if a normal result is reported.
     
  • This test is not suitable for expecting mothers with chromosome aneuploidy, mosaic chromosome aneuploidy, microdeletion and microduplication, multiple pregnancy, and less than 10 weeks gestation.
     
  • Expecting mothers who have had a a blood transfusion, an organ transplant, or a stem cell therapy may receive a false-positive or false-negative result because of exogenous DNA.
