Counsyl, Inc. Key Developments

Counsyl Adds Positive Predictive Value to Non-Invasive Pregnancy Screen Results Reports

Counsyl has added positive predictive value (PPV) to its non-invasive pregnancy screen (NIPS) results. Counsyl is the first genetic screening company to take this step. The company’s Informed Pregnancy Screen detects whether a pregnancy is at increased risk for common aneuploidies--chromosomal abnormalities such as Down syndrome, trisomy 18 and trisomy 13. Including PPV helps physicians and patients understand the probability that a positive test result is a true positive and determine if further diagnostic procedures are warranted. It’s important for screening companies to help patients understand their personal risks and weigh them against the prospect of false alarms. In addition to clear reporting on the Informed Pregnancy Screen, Counsyl offers every patient the chance to speak with a board-certified genetic counselor. Counsyl offers DNA screenings for key times in people’s lives - for those starting a family and for those at risk for inherited cancer.
