Cell-free DNA screening
for trisomy 13, 18 and 21

Laboratoire CERBA is the first clinical pathology laboratory in Europe performing in its entirety the Cell‐free DNA screening for trisomy 13,18 and 21 on its specialized clinical pathology  platform.

A historical commitment in prenatal diagnosis

Laboratoire Cerba is highly commited in prenatal diagnosis since many years with:

  • the implementation of the risk assessment calculation for trisomy 21 using maternal serum markers as soon as 1991,
  • the creation of a department for prenatal cytogenetics in 1992,
  • the implementation of the risk assessment calculation for trisomy 21 using maternal serum markers at the 1st trimester of pregnancy in 2007,
  • the implementation of the prenatal diagnosis of fetal sex and Rhesus D in the maternal blood in 2007,
  • the implementation of the molecular karyotype on CGH Array in 2012.

International diffusion of this new test

laboratoire CERBA gives access in routine to this innovation in the countries, from sample to result, tanks to:

  • exclusive high-throughput sequencing (NGS) and bio-informatic analysis technologies coming from a technology transfer from Sequenom, world-class leader in diagnosis for trisomy 21,
  • in-house teams specialized in molecular genomics,
  • dedicated infrastructure at Laboratoire Cerba,
  • a unique network of local agents adapted to the populations needs.

New perspectives for pregnancies at risk

New perspectives for pregnancies at risk prenatal diagnosis for trisomy 21 and other aneuploidies by quantitative analysis of the fetal DNA in the maternal blood represents a key step in the management of pregnancies at risk and opens huge perspectives.

Laboratoire CERBA is accredited by the COFRAC: www.cofrac.fr.
