Our pregnancy and prenatal test offerings include tests to determine the risk for heritable genetic disease, screen for and diagnose chromosomal abnormalities, and monitor the health of both fetus and mother throughout pregnancy. We also offer diagnostic testing for at-risk pregnancies through our cytogenetic and molecular genetics labs, as well as testing to determine the underlying cause of infertility or pregnancy loss. Visit ARUP Consult, our free laboratory test selection tool, for educational content about Pregnancy and Prenatal Laboratory Testing.

Carrier Screening

Our carrier screening tests assess the risk for particular disorders in your patients’ offspring, informing reproductive choices. This testing can be performed before or during pregnancy to ensure appropriate intervention and improve outcomes.

When it comes to choosing the right test, you are not alone. Our genetic counselors are available to guide you through the test selection, coordination, and reporting processes.

Learn more about testing recommendations for carrier screening by visiting our ARUP Consult Carrier Screening for Genetic Disorders topic.

Prenatal Screening and Diagnosis

Routine Prenatal Screening

Routine prenatal screening tests to assess the health of mother and fetus can be performed in-house at your local hospital or sent to ARUP, depending on your needs.

Need help standardizing these tests in your own lab? Our healthcare consultants have extensive experience in developing order sets and analyzing utilization patterns for more efficient, cost-effective care. Click here to learn more.
