What do my Genesis Serenity test results mean?

Your results will tell your doctor whether or not trisomies 21, 18, 13 or sex chromosome abnormalities (if these were ordered) are highly suspected in this pregnancy. In the case of a positive result, your doctor may discuss what the results mean to you and your fetus as well as further testing options for your pregnancy. Your test report will include one of three possible results for chromosomes 21, 18, and 13: No Aneuploidy Detected, Aneuploidy Detected, or Aneuploidy Suspected (Borderline Value). Sex chromosomes will be reported as No Aneuploidy Detected, or Aneuploidy Detected. In the case of a twin pregnancy, the Y chromosome presence will be reported as Detected or Not Detected.

  • A No Aneuploidy Detected test result means that this test identified the expected number of copies of chromosomes reported.
  • An Aneuploidy Detected test result means that this test identified too many or too few copies of one of the chromosomes as seen on the report. This can indicate either a trisomy or a sex chromosome aneuploidy.
  • An Aneuploidy Suspected test result means that this test identified more copies than expected of the chromosomes reported. This means that your provider should follow up on this result to obtain more information.
