BGI VISTA™ Chromosome Sequencing uses NGS based low coverage whole genome sequencing (WGS) to help detect chromosome abnormalities before or during pregnancy. Testing can be performed on a variety of different sample types.
The results obtained from testing can reduce a patient’s emotional burden and information from the results can improve the chances of a future successful pregnancy. If the chromosome abnormality in the fetus causes pregnancy loss, parents can usually be reassured that the chance of recurrence is low, and avoid a costly medical check-up.
