Overview

A double marker test is a first-trimester prenatal screening test. This is done by measuring two substances in the mothers blood called beta-human chorionic gonadotropin (-hCG) and pregnancy-associated plasma protein-A (PAPP A). If this is identified a more accurate test called Non Invasive Prenatal Testing (NIPT) is ordered, which is a screening test for chromosomal abnormalities primarily Down syndrome (Trisomy 21) and Edwards syndrome (Trisomy 18) in the fetus. This is useful for determining whether there is risk of such disorders at the beginning of pregnancy.

Test Details

In cases where the double marker test is done between 10-13 weeks of pregnancy, this test can be diagnosed through maternal blood. Results from the test are used along with other factors such as the woman’s age, to work out the probability of the baby having a chromosomal abnormality. If the double marker test indicates heightened risk, your doctor may advise you to undergo amniocentesis or chorionic villus sampling to confirm the diagnosis.

Test DetailsDouble marker test is a first trimester screening test performed during pregnancy to detect major chromosomal abnormalities. This quantitates two particular products in the mother’s blood: beta- human chorionic gonadotrophin (-hCG) and pregnancy-associated plasma protein-A (PAPP-A). 

Uses : Mainly screen for chromosomal abnormalities- esp trisomy 21 (Down Syndrome) and 18 (Edward Syndrome) by double marker test It allows for early screening of these indicatives of those aforementioned health conditions.

 It is commonly performed between the 10th and 13th week of pregnancy and involves a blood sample from the mother. The test results, combined with other factors, such as the mother’s age, are used to determine the chances that the fetus has a chromosomal abnormality. 

In case of increased risk on double marker test diagnostic tests such as amniocentesis or chorionic villus sampling may be advised to confirm the diagnosis. 

It should be emphasized that the double marker test is only a screening test and not diagnostic test. An inexpensive blood test less commonly known as NIPT does a better job at screening for chromosomal abnormalities, but not as reliable for diagnosis.

It is relatively safe to take the double marker test, however as with all medical procedures, the double marker test can also have some risks and limitations. Before taking the test, a healthcare provider should be consulted about the benefits, risks, and limitations of the test.
