Molecular biology tests and chromosomal analysis for pregnant:
Used for pre-diagnosis during gestation and through pregnancy months:

There is the work of one assays to detect the presence of disease opportunities (defect in the chromosomes):
1 – PAPP – A (1st trimestric screening):
And then assays are made are introducing their findings on a special computer program exists lab to calculate the chances of disease
1 – PAPP – A 2 – B-HCG
This is the work week analysis between the ninth and fourteenth of pregnancy
2 – Triple markers for Down Syndrome:
Is the work of three and then analyzes are introducing their findings on a special computer program exists lab to calculate the chances of disease
