MULTIPLE MARKER TEST
Multiple marker test
It is a set of tests performed for detecting genetic disorders in the baby. It allows also to detect heart defects and other genetic syndromes. The multiple marker test can be undergone just between the 11 to the 14 weeks of pregnancy, it cannot be done neither before, nor after.
There are two types of multiple marker test:
1 – TWO MATERNAL BLOOD TESTS
1 – THREE MATERNAL BLOOD TESTS
The test B is the most complete and the most recommended because we can predict if risk of preeclampsia is high during the pregnancy. First, the blood test is performed and after 3-4 days it is time for the ultrasound, which result is released the same day.
