A negative test result reduces, but doesn’t eliminate, your child’s risk of being affected by these genetic conditions or any other genetic conditions not covered by this test.
Natalis is only intended to identify certain variants (or changes) in DNA that are very likely to cause genetic conditions. No single genetic test can detect all of the possible gene variants that could cause a condition. Additionally, this test does not report a child’s carrier status for autosomal recessive conditions.
Parental DNA is only analyzed using targeted testing if indicated by the child’s test results. Next-generation sequencing will not be performed on parental DNA, and a separate report will not be issued to the parent(s) unless specifically ordered by a physician.
