1. When should I have Panorama prenatal screen?

Panorama can be performed as early as 9 weeks into the pregnancy.

2. Who should have Panorama prenatal screen?

The Panorama prenatal screen is designed for women of any age and ethnicity who are at least 9 weeks pregnant. It cannot currently be used by women who are carrying more than one baby (twins or triplets), women who have used a donor egg or a surrogate, or those who have received a bone marrow transplant.

3. What are the benefits of having the Panorama prenatal screen?

As early as nine weeks into your pregnancy, a simple blood draw can tell you if your baby is at higher risk for having Down syndrome and other common genetic conditions, as well as the gender of your baby. Non-invasive and highly accurate, Panorama identifies more than 99% of pregnancies affected with Down syndrome and has the lowest reported false positive rate of any prenatal screening test for the commonly screened chromosomal abnormalities: trisomy 21, trisomy 18, and trisomy 13.
