Test Details
Test Code:PL0875
Test Name:Quadruple Test
Test Details & Preparation
The quad screen - also known as the quadruple marker test or simply the quad test - is a prenatal test that measures levels of four substances in a pregnant woman's blood: Alpha-fetoprotein (AFP), a protein made by the developing baby Human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG), a hormone made by the placenta Estriol, a hormone made by the placenta and the baby's liver and Inhibin A, another hormone made by the placenta.

Typically, the quad screen is done between weeks 15 and 20 of pregnancy - the second trimester. Results of the quad screen indicate your risk of carrying a baby who has certain chromosomal conditions, such as Down syndrome. The alpha-fetoprotein part of the test can help detect neural tube defects, such as spina bifida.

If your risk level is low, the quad screen can offer reassurance of a healthy pregnancy. If your risk level is moderate or high, you might choose to follow the quad screen with another test that's more definitive.

The quad screen is done to evaluate your risk of carrying a baby who has Down syndrome (trisomy 21), Edwards’s syndrome (trisomy 18), Spina bifida or Anencephaly.

Depending on the timing, your health care provider might recommend other prenatal screening tests - such as first trimester screening, which involves a blood test and an ultrasound exam - in addition to the quad screen or in place of the quad screen. Remember, the quad screen is optional. Test results only indicate whether you have an increased risk of carrying a baby who has Down syndrome, for example, not whether your baby actually has the condition.

You don't need to do anything special to prepare for the quad screen. You can eat and drink normally before the blood test.
