Comprehensive, Accurate and Trustworthy Prenatal Testing
Introducing the Panorama™ prenatal test, the most accurate and comprehensive non-invasive screening test that gives you the reassurance you need during your pregnancy.
During pregnancy, some of the DNA from the baby crosses into mom’s bloodstream. DNA is organized in structures known as chromosomes, which carry the baby's genetic information. Natera has a screening non-invasive prenatal test (NIPT) called Panorama that uses a blood sample from mom to find the baby’s DNA and to look for certain chromosomal conditions that could affect the baby’s health.
Most people have 23 pairs of chromosomes for a total of 46 — two copies of each set. The Panorama test is highly accurate in screening for instances where there is only one chromosome where there should be a pair, or if there is an extra chromosome, specifically for the chromosomes that are responsible for Down syndrome, Edwards syndrome, Patau syndrome and certain sex chromosome trisomies. Panorama can also identify if there are three sets of each chromosome, which is known as triploidy.
Panorama also offers the option of testing for microdeletions. These microdeletions result in syndromes that can have severe intellectual disability, and moderate to severe physical disabilities. The combined incidence of these microdeletions is approximately 1 in 1,000 births.
While there are diagnostic genetic tests available, like amniocentesis or chorionic villus sampling (CVS), these are invasive and carry a risk of miscarriage. The Panorama prenatal test requires only a blood draw from the mother, and is safe for mother and baby.
The Panorama prenatal test: because you deserve the reassurance that comes from having the most accurate and comprehensive genetic information available.
