hand baby motherPre-natal testing for chromosomal abnormalities


Yourgene Health previously named Premaitha Health is a molecular diagnostics company that offers non-invasive prenatal screening for fetal chromosome abnormalities such as Down’s Syndrome.

Rationale

The market for pre-natal testing is changing as non-invasive methods displace established procedures. ¬†Yourgene Health’s IONA test is based on analysis of fetal DNA in the mother’s blood which will allow women to forgo an invasive procedure that can be unpleasant and risky to the fetus (1% miscarriage rate).

The management team includes Dr Stephen Little, a successful serial biotechnology entrepreneur and the former CEO of DxS, an innovator in the field of personalised medicine.
