Do the Genesis Serenity prenatal test results mean that my baby will be perfectly healthy?

Do normal Genesis Serenity prenatal test results mean that my baby will be perfectly healthy?

No test can guarantee a baby will not have any medical issues. The Genesis Serenity prenatal test only tests for aneuploidies of chromosomes 21, 18, 13, and sex chromosomes, if ordered. It does not test for all genetic and non-genetic problems that may be present in a baby. If the test result is “No aneuploidy detected”, indicating a negative result, it does not completely rule out all potential problems with chromosomes 21, 18, and 13, or all sex chromosome aneuploidies in your baby.

The Genesis Serenity prenatal test is a highly accurate advanced screening test that is non-invasive. Genetic counselling after testing positive is recommended. Results of “Aneuploidy Detected” or “Aneuploidy Suspected” are considered positive and patients should be offered invasive prenatal procedures for confirmation.

A negative test does not ensure an unaffected pregnancy. Chorionic villus sampling and amniocentesis provide definitive diagnostic information, but the invasive nature of these procedures can give rise to concern among some patients.
