IONA-NIPT

IONA®

The IONA® test is a non-invasive prenatal test for pregnant women which estimates the risk of a foetus having certain syndromes from £395!

The IONA® test estimates the risk of a foetus having Down’s syndrome (Trisomy 21), Edwards’ syndrome (Trisomy 18) and Patau’s syndrome (Trisomy 13).

During pregnancy the placenta leaks cell-free DNA which circulates in the maternal bloodstream. As a result, a maternal blood sample contains a mixture of fetal and maternal circulating DNA.

With My Baby Company, our clients can expect to receive their test results within approximately 3-5 working days.

Or call us on 0161 667 1599 or 01257 249089 for more information or to book your appointment.

THE MOST SENSITIVE, VALIDATED AND SAFE TEST

How it works

During the pregnancy, some fragments of the fetal DNA circulate in the maternal blood and are detectable starting from the 5th week of gestation. The circulating fetal DNA quantity increases with the increasing gestational period, and from the 10th week of gestation it is sufficient for PrenatalSafe test to guarantee a high specificity and sensitivity of the test.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How accurate is the PrenatalSafe 5 test?

The PrenatalSafe 5 test is accurate and identifies Down’s syndrome, Edwards’ syndrome and Patau’s syndrome in over 99% of cases.

What is the false positive rate?

Less than 1% of pregnant women may receive a high risk result from the PrenatalSafe 5 test and then go onto to have a follow-up invasive test which confirms that the fetus is not affected with trisomy 21, 18 or 13.

How is the sample taken?

A simple blood sample is taken from your arm by a healthcare professional after you have been pregnant for at least 10 weeks.

What is the current method of screening?

Currently most healthcare systems offer pregnant women the combined test which includes a fetal ultrasound and blood test performed at about 11-13 weeks into your pregnancy. The ultrasound looks at multiple aspects of the developing fetus, but particularly at the skin fold at the top of the spine where it meets the skull, this is called the Nuchal Translucency (NT). The blood test measures the levels of two hormones: hCG and PAPP-A. The current combined test has a ~85% detection rate and ~5% false positive rate.

Is the PrenatalSafe 5 test replacing the 11-13 week dating scan?

No, it is recommended that you still have this dating scan at 11-13 weeks to assess the baby's growth and development. The PrentalSafe 5 test or any other non-invasive prenatal DNA screening test will not replace this dating ultrasound.

Is the PrenatalSafe 5 test 100% conclusive?

It is not 100% conclusive due to naturally occurring biological instances where the fetalDNA differs from the placental DNA.

How long will it take to get the results?

Once the sample is received at the laboratory it can take between 3-5 working days* to perform the test as this is a scientific process, in certain cases this process will be longer. The data from the laboratory test is entered into the PrenatalSafe 5 analysis software and an easy to interpret result report is generated and given to your healthcare professional such as a consultant or midwife.

* Blood samples collected over the weekend will be despatched to the laboratory on the next working day.

No Result: Very occasionally there is insufficient placental DNA in the sample to obtain a result. In these cases we may need to call you back in order take a further blood sample thus delaying the results.

What are my options if I have a high risk result for a trisomy?

If you get a “high risk” result, you will be contacted by your consultant or midwife. The next steps will be determined in consultation with your healthcare provider. All high risk results should be confirmed by a follow-up invasive procedure, such as amniocentesis or Chorionic Villus Sampling (CVS).

Can I have the PrenatalSafe 5 test if I have twins?

The PrenatalSafe 5 test is suitable for twin pregnancies. However, in dichorionic twins, the test sensitivity is reduced from >99% to about 95%. Dichorionic means there are two placentas, such as non-identical twins and some identical twins.

THE MOST SENSITIVE, VALIDATED AND SAFE TEST

How it works

During the pregnancy, some fragments of the fetal DNA circulate in the maternal blood and are detectable starting from the 5th week of gestation. The circulating fetal DNA quantity increases with the increasing gestational period, and from the 10th week of gestation it is sufficient for PrenatalSafe test to guarantee a high specificity and sensitivity of the test.

GeneSafe facilitates early diagnosis of single-gene disorders.

All pregnant women regardless of age are at equal risk of the genetic conditions screened by GeneSafe. Although the occurrence of each disorder is relatively rare, the cumulative rate of these conditions (~1 to 600) is similar to that of Down Syndrome, in younger women.

GeneSafe is broken down into 3 different levels of screening:

GeneSafe-Inherited

GeneSafe Inherited

Allows detection of common inherited disorders within the foetus.

This test screens for 5 common inherited recessive genetic disorders, such as Cystic Fibrosis, Thalassemia-Beta, Sickle cell anemia, Deafness autosomal recessive type 1A, Deafness autosomal recessive type 1B.

Genes screened: CFTR, CX26 (GJB2), CX30 (GJB6), HBB

GeneSafe-De-Novo

GeneSafe De Novo

This test screens for 44 severe genetic disorders due to de novo mutations (a gene mutation that is not inherited) in 25 genes.

Many disorders screened with GeneSafe De Novo are not typically associated with abnormal prenatal ultrasound findings (especially in the first trimester), or may not be evident until late second/third trimester, when confirmatory invasive testing can pose a risk of pre-term birth, or baby’s health after delivery.

Genes screened: ASXL1, BRAF, CBL, CHD7, COL1A1, COL1A2 , COL2A1, FGFR2, FGFR3, HDAC8, JAG1, KRAS, MAP2K1, MAP2K2, MECP2, NIPBL, NRAS, NSD1, PTPN11, RAF1, RIT1, SETBP1, SHOC2, SIX3, SOS1

GeneSafe-Completed

GeneSafe Complete

This test screens for both inherited and de novo single-gene disorders and represents a combination of the tests GeneSafe Inherited and GeneSafe De Novo, providing a more complete picture of the pregnancy risk.

MY BABY COMPANY ARE NOW OFFERING IONA® NIPT TESTING

We’re now offering the IONA® NIPT test in the relaxation, comfort and luxury of our boutiques for £395, including a reassurance scan.

IONA-What-Is

What is the IONA® test?

The IONA® test is a non-invasive prenatal test (NIPT) for pregnant women which estimates the risk of a foetus having Down’s syndrome or some other serious genetic diseases.

CLICK TO READ MORE

This advanced screening test is carried out from a small maternal blood sample in the comfort of our calm and relaxing boutiques. Once the blood sample is taken, the sample is sent off for analysis at Premaitha Health’s dedicated laboratory in Manchester.

With My Baby Company, our clients can expect to receive their test results within approximately 3-5 days.

IONA-Screen-For

What does IONA® test screen for?

The IONA® test estimates the risk of a foetus having Down’s syndrome (Trisomy 21), Edwards’ syndrome (Trisomy 18) and Patau’s syndrome (Trisomy 13).

CLICK TO READ MORE

Trisomies occur when three, instead of the usual two, copies of a chromosome are present. Edwards’ and Patau’s syndromes are much rarer than Down’s but are very serious and many affected babies do not survive.

IONA-How-does-it-work

How does it work?

During pregnancy the placenta leaks cell-free DNA which circulates in the maternal bloodstream. As a result, a maternal blood sample contains a mixture of fetal and maternal circulating DNA.

CLICK TO READ MORE

The IONA® test directly measures the amount of this cell-free DNA and can detect small changes in the DNA ratio between the maternal and cell-free DNA when a fetal trisomy 21, 18 or 13 is present.

Why is IONA® better than the current combined test?

Traditional screening offered during pregnancy is currently called the combined test. This is an ultrasound scan to measure the nuchal translucency (NT) and a blood test. This is much less accurate than NIPT and it only detects around 85% of babies with Down’s syndrome.

The IONA® test has a higher detection rate than the current combined test offered to pregnant women. This means that fewer pregnant women will undergo unnecessary invasive follow-up procedures such as amniocentesis or CVS* which are stressful, painful and can carry a small risk of miscarriage.

* Chorionic villus sampling

What are the advantages of the IONA® test?

Safe: non-invasive with no risk of miscarriage.

Simple: uses a simple maternal blood sample. Unlike other NIPT’s, the IONA® test is performed in a laboratory local to you. So your blood sample is not shipped to the US or China.

Accurate: greater than 99% for detection of trisomy conditions.

Quality: unlike other NIPT’s, the IONA® test is a regulated diagnostic, which is CE marked.

Fast: the IONA® test is the fastest NIPT available with results provided within 3-5 working days, from sample receipt arrving at the laboratory.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

No, it is recommended that you still have this dating scan at 11-13 weeks to assess the baby's growth and development. The IONA® test or any other non-invasive prenatal DNA screening test will not replace this dating ultrasound.

Is the IONA® test 100% conclusive?

It is not 100% conclusive due to naturally occurring biological instances where the fetalDNA differs from the placental DNA.

All high risk results should be confirmed by a follow-up invasive procedure, such as amniocentesis or Chorionic Villus Sampling (CVS).

Can I have the IONA® test if I have twins?

The IONA® test is suitable for twin pregnancies. However, in dichorionic twins, the test sensitivity is reduced from >99% to about 95%. Dichorionic means there are two placentas, such as non-identical twins and some identical twins.
