For Safer Pregnancies

Pre-eclampsia, a condition that occurs during pregnancy and is characterized by high-blood pressure, can lead to harmful or even fatal complications for both mother and child. Fortunately, our latest screening solutions allow pregnant women and their OBGYNs to identify a risk for this condition as early as the first trimester when treatment can be administered for better outcomes. In fact, a recent study showed that women who are identified as "at-risk" can reduce the rate of pre-eclampsia with a simple regimen of aspirin. In addition to our pre-eclampsia kits,we offer other technologies that aid in everything from fertility research to healthier pregnancies.
