The Next Generation in Prenatal Genetic Testing
Our new diagnostic test is a long-awaited breakthrough in prenatal genetic testing. It is a single-cell diagnostic test that can replace current cell-free noninvasive prenatal testing (cfNIPT) early in a pregnancy and in most cases eliminate the need for invasive chorionic villus sampling (CVS) or amniocentesis procedures that carry inherent risk to the fetus.
Our Test Is...
… safe, uniquely capturing whole fetal trophoblast cells from maternal blood, a breakthrough that enables clinicians to obtain diagnostic results without risk to the fetus
…diagnostic, it detects fetal chromosomal abnormalities such as Down syndrome and other aneuploidies more reliably and can detect deletions larger than 1.5 million bases/letters (1.5 Mb)
…available early in pregnancy, as early as 8 weeks, after which further testing is unnecessary with few exceptions.

Hope the company has the bandwidth to test what is likely to become a flood of samples. The fact that it’s a diagnostic and can take the place of amnio/CVS is a really big deal. Even couples who are enthusiastic about genetic testing have some reservations about these tests due to their invasive nature. The Luna SCPD test changes this."
After receiving an abnormal screening result from my noninvasive prenatal test (NIPT), I had to wait two months until I could undergo amniocentesis. It turned out the NIPT result was a false positive, but the months of waiting to get a normal diagnostic result on the health of my growing fetus were the two most difficult months of my life."
