Highly accurate, comprehensive prenatal genetic testing you can trust.
Panorama is a market-leading non-invasive prenatal screening test (NIPT) that reveals your baby’s risk for genetic disorders as early as nine weeks (First and Second Trimester). With Panorama, you can find out for the likelihood of your baby having a chromosomal abnormality, such as Down syndrome, and all that’s required is a sample of your blood. If you so choose, you may also find out the gender of your baby.

What Panorama Screens For
Panorama screens for the most common genetic conditions and the baby’s gender (optional). Some conditions, such as Down syndrome, are caused by extra copies of a specific chromosome. Others, such as microdeletions, occur when a chromosome is missing a small piece of genetic information. Microdeletions affect women equally, regardless of age.
- Trisomy 21 (Down syndrome)
- Trisomy 18 (Edwards syndrome)
- Trisomy 13 (Patau syndrome)
Sex Chromosome Abnormalities:
- Monosomy X (Turner syndrome)
- Klinefelter syndrome
- Triple X syndrome
- XYY syndrome
- 22q11.2 deletion syndrome
- 1p36 deletion syndrome
- Prader Willi syndrome
- Angelman syndrome
- Cri-du-chat syndrome
Why choose Panorama?
- Panorama can be performed as early as nine weeks into pregnancy.
- Panorama is performed with a simple blood draw from the mother’s arm, posing no risk to the fetus.
- Panorama offers complimentary pre- and post-test information sessions with Natera board-certified genetic counselors.
- More than 600,000 women in more than 60 countries have chosen Panorama
- Panorama detects conditions that other tests can’t, including molar pregnancy, triploidy and vanishing twin.
- Panorama screens for Down syndrome with an accuracy rate greater than 99%.
- Panorama is the only test that differentiates between maternal and fetal DNA, which helps avoid false positives and false negatives.
- Among commercially available NIPTs, Panorama has the highest published accuracy in determining the baby’s gender.
- Panorama has the highest sensitivity for 22q11.2 deletion syndrome, a common and potential severe microdeletion that impacts women equally regardless of age.
Is Panorama right for me?
According to the International Society for Prenatal Diagnosis (ISPD), non-invasive prenatal testing, including Panorama, is appropriate as a primary screening test for pregnant women of all ages. Down syndrome and certain other chromosomal conditions occur more frequently in babies born to mothers over 35 years old. Other conditions for which Panorama screens – such as microdeletion syndromes – occur with the same frequency in babies, regardless of the mother’s age.
Currently, Panorama cannot be used in the following types of pregnancies:
- Multiple gestation pregnancies
- Pregnancies that are using an egg donor or a surrogate
- Pregnant women who are bone marrow transplant recipients
You should discuss with your doctor if you’re a candidate for the Panorama NIPT. If you do decide to do the test, please make sure you book with your closest Lancet laboratory.
