Maternal Blood

whole maternal blood

StemExpress draws very small volumes of human maternal blood from IRB consented expecting donors. Maternal blood is collected from all types of pregnancies, including aneuploidy positive pregnancies, at varying gestations and demographics.

The use of maternal blood for research purposes has led to advancements in the non-invasive prenatal testing (NIPTs) that help foretell many fetal abnormalities and biomarkers that predict birth complications (Read some of our Case Studies).
