A new test that’s able to detect genetic disorders in pregnancies might change the future of pregnancy forever…
Researchers at Columbia University created a new test that is capable of detecting several genetic disorders in fetuses for a cost as little as $50 USD. The test is able to pick up various genetic disorders such as cystic fibrosis, sickle cell disease, Fragile X syndrome, and so much more.
The “Short-read Transpore Rapid Karyotyping” (or STORK), went through a testing process on 278 samples proving that the test is 99.5% effective.
According to the New York Post, “The organization also stated that STORK could increase access to genetic testing for a huge number of expecting women and help identify genetic disorders that cause miscarriage.”
This will truly change the future of pregnancy forever.
