PrenatalSAFE® is a non-invasive prenatal test performed in ITALY, at GENOMA Group laboratories. Contrary to many other tests on the market that analyze fetal DNA from maternal blood, the samples ARE NOT sent in service in the USA or in China.
There are several offers of fetal DNA analysis tests from maternal blood. In many cases, the centres that propose the exam are test suppliers: they only perform the blood sampling to the pregnant woman and send the biological sample to a foreign laboratory. On the other hand, PrenatalSAFE® test is performed in Italy, in Rome and Milan, at Genoma Group laboratories.
GENOMA invested enormous resources in state of the art instrumentation, technology, know-how and scientific research, to provide clients with a high quality service and a high-tech non-invasive prenatal exam. GENOMA in partnership with ILLUMINA, multinational corporation leader in next generation sequencing (NGS), offers one of the most advanced protocols of non-invasive prenatal diagnosis currently available in Europe.
