Mater Pathology

Introducing pre-conception genetic testing

February 12, 2018

Mater Pathology and Victorian Clinical Genetics Services (VCGS) are proud to offer a comprehensive and holistic suite of non-invasive prenatal genetic testing.

In addition to our percept NIPT offering, we now also offer prepair pre-conception, genetic carrier screening. This test is a non-invasive blood test and screens for three common inherited conditions: cystic fibrosis (CF), fragile X syndrome (FXS), and spinal muscular atrophy (SMA).

prepair costs $385 and can be collected at any Mater Pathology collection centre. Single condition testing is also available for $150-$220 (depending on which condition is being tested).

Free pre-test and post-test counselling is available via telephone.

For more information please refer to the prepair request form and test brochure.
