GeneSyte™ can be conducted anytime from 10 weeks gestation. However, this test works well in combination with a 12 week ultrasound. The 12 week ultrasound looks for the healthy growth of a baby, GeneSyte™ is looking for the chromosome health of the baby which is just as important.
All blood samples are tested at our Genea laboratory and we have one of the fastest reporting times.
GeneSyte™ costs $445 out of pocket, there is no Medicare rebate. At Genea Hollywood, we also offer free genetic counselling to all our patients if required. Our counsellors are highly qualified, specifically in genetics and pregnancy.
Any doctor may order GeneSyte™. GPs, obstetricians and clinicians at ultrasound units often do. Any referral is accepted, even if a doctor doesn’t have our specific request/referral form.
