Pretest Education


For booked patients only.

Our Tests


There are 3 available tests, MaterniT21, which is the core test, MaterniT21 Plus, and MaterniT Genome. We will take you through an online pretest education session prior to testing so you understand the differences between the tests and can make the right choice for you.

We take your blood test from our rooms in Epsom and send to Sequenom Laboratories, San Diego. 95% of results are back in 6-8 calendar days. We send the result to your referrer who will contact you.

Non-Invasive Prenatal Testing (NIPT) information


NIPT is Non-Invasive Prenatal Testing and is also known as cell-free fetal DNA testing (cffDNA). DNA from the placenta is released into the maternal bloodstream.

A small amount of blood is drawn from the mother and the DNA is tested to see if there is an expected amount of chromosomal material.
