percept™ non-invasive prenatal test includes assessment of all the chromosomes for identifying pregnancies at increased chance of having a chromosome condition, making it Australia's most advanced NIPT.
Maternal serum screening is a blood test available to pregnant women who want to know their chance of having a baby with a chromosome condition, such as Down syndrome. Serum screening can also provide additional information about pregnancy health, such as the risk of developing early-onset pre-eclampsia.
Newborn bloodspot screening is an extremely successful public health program which identifies babies that may have rare but significant medical conditions.
Our detailed phenotype-based approach provides the most effective and reliable way to identify disease-causing variants. VCGS provides Australia's most cost-effective, NATA accredited clinical genomics sequencing service.
Disorders/Differences of Sex Development (DSD)
Disorders/Differences of Sex Development (DSD) are conditions where the development of chromosomal, anatomical or gonadal sex is atypical. DSD covers a wide spectrum of disorders such as hypospadias (misplacement of the urethral opening on the penis), premature ovarian insufficiency and complete sex reversal (where the physical sex does not match the genetic sex of an individual).
