What is MaterniT21 Testing?

A breakthrough in prenatal genetic screening, MaterniT21 testing uses a blood test to diagnose fetal abnormalities, such as Down’s syndrome. Unlike invasive prenatal genetic tests, such as amniocentesis and chorionic villus sampling (CVS), MaterniT21 testing eliminates risks to the mother and fetus. It also increases the accuracy of the results.

Why is MaterniT21 testing performed?

For pregnant mothers with a high risk of genetic diseases or chromosomal disorders, MaterniT21 testing offers early detection of genetic disorders. This early detection allows mothers and doctors to determine an appropriate care plan for the remainder of the pregnancy and after the birth of the baby.

As part of our dedication to providing our patients with the most advanced, highest level of care, Florida Hospital offers this breakthrough screening technology to qualified patients. See if you are a candidate for MaterniT21 testing. Schedule an appointment online today.
