Nextgen Genetics POC testing identify the reason of the miscarriages. Nextgen Genetics has advanced NGS (Next Generation
Sequencing) based technology with combination of STR (Short Tandem Repeat) approach to maximize of getting the most
accurate and reliable results from a fetal tissue.
Why Perform POC testing?
Although there many reason and risk factors for early loss the most common cause for early miscarriages are sporadic
chromosome abnormality. Knowledge regarding the pregnancy loss is useful for a patient to determine whether or not the
loss was due to chromosomal abnormality which could guide a patient for further work up.
Why Choose Nextgen Genetics?
Traditionally most of POC testing has been done by using traditional cytogenetics analysis. Due to overgrowth of
maternally derived cells falsely producing normal female karyotype.
Nextgen Genetics uses multi dissection (typically 3) approach to maximize the chance of identifying fetal tissue by
using STR (Short Tandem Repeat) analysis.
STR analysis will also detect or rule out maternal cell contamination that avoid potential false negative with normal
Short turn around time (Less than a week)
