Preparation for a genetic test
Genetic tests are based on the analysis of the genetic material (DNA) for the detection of possible alterations that could lead to genetic diseases.
The blood collection can be sceduled for any time of the day – you can eat or drink as usual by that time!
For all genetic analyses the peripheral blood is collected in tubes with EDTA as an anticoagulant.
The blood samples that are going to undergo conventional karyotyping have to be collected in tubes with dry heparin.
Blood samples for NIPT testing are collected in speciallized tubes provided by our laboratory.
In case of prenatal testing, the sample collection is performed by the gynecologist and the sample is subsequently sent to the laboratory for analysis.
For the genetic counseling you should bring with you a complete medical file with all the tests that you have previously done.
