Prenatal and newborn genetic testing is used for screening or diagnosis of chromosomal abnormalities in a fetus or a newborn baby. Some of the abnormalities detected through this kind of testing are Down syndrome, Edward syndrome, and Patau syndrome. Through these testing options, it is very much possible to detect genetic abnormalities in the gestation period, along with determining the sex of the fetus. The abnormalities can be detected in about eight to ten weeks of the pregnancy.
The crucial market driver fueling the global prenatal and new-born genetic testing market is the increasing awareness amongst pregnant women about screening and testing their fetus to ensure that the offspring is born healthy. Research by the Northwestern Medical Faculty Foundation shows that about 85% pregnant women are advised by doctors to undergo screening or testing for early diagnoses of birth defects. Some of the birth defects that can be diagnosed are open neural tube defects, trisomy 18, and Down syndrome. The growing incidence of late pregnancies and increasing maternal age, awareness about fetal genetic disorders, and technological advancements are also contributing to the growth of this market.
The global prenatal and new-born genetic testing market has been segmented on the basis of technology and geography. There are broadly two technologies used in this market: diagnostics techniques and screening methods. The diagnostic techniques segment is further sub-segmented into array-comparative genomic hybridization (aCGH), fluorescence in-situ hybridization & (FISH), and polymerase chain reaction (PCR). On the other hand, screening methods are inclusive of non-invasive prenatal tests (MaterniT21 PLUS, Verifi, Harmony, Panorama, NIFTY, PrenaTest and Bambni Test) and maternal serum screening (MSS). Geographically, the global prenatal and new-born genetic testing market is segmented into Asia Pacific, Europe, North America, and Rest of the World.
The report profiles some of the key players in the global prenatal and new-born genetic testing market, such as Agilent Technologies, Inc., Natera, Inc., Bio-Rad Laboratories, Inc., and Illumina, Inc. The company profiling includes the financial status of these companies, their investment plans, research and development programs, and a list of their existing products along with the ones in the pipeline.
