Introduction to QF- PCR test

The QF-PCR test, or Quantitative Fluorescent Polymerase Chain Reaction, is a rapid technique used in prenatal diagnosis and other situations to detect chromosomal abnormalities. The test analyzes the specific chromosomal regions (13, 18, 21, X and Y) to identify the number of copies present. 

These chromosomes are frequently involved in conditions like Down syndrome (trisomy 21) and 

Turner syndrome (monosomy X). The test is helpful in detecting issues in pregnancy and making informed pregnancy decisions. Your doctor may recommend the test if you are pregnant women with a higher risk of chromosomal abnormalities due to age or family history. It can also be used in miscarriage investigations or to assess specific chromosomal abnormalities in newborns.

Purpose of the QF- PCR test

The QF-PCR test is used to detect chromosomal abnormalities. It is used in prenatal testing to screen for conditions like trisomy 13, 18, or 21 (Down syndrome), or sex chromosome aneuploidies (Turner syndrome or Klinefelter syndrome).

Preparation for the QF- PCR test

The preparation for a QF-PCR test requires minimal preparation before the test-

  • Fasting- You don’t need to fast before the test, you can eat as usual before the test.
  • Medications- Inform your doctor about any medications you're taking. 

Discuss any concerns you have with your doctor beforehand. 

The procedure of the QF- PCR test

The QF-PCR test is a simple test in which the doctors will collect the fluids or blood samples.

The healthcare provider will use a needle to extract a small amount of DNA. After the procedure collecting the sample, there might be mild cramping or discomfort. Rest and avoid strenuous activity for a day or two as advised by your doctor. The collected sample is then sent to a specialized laboratory for further analysis.

What do the QF- PCR test reports indicate?

The QF-PCR test won’t directly tell you if there's a chromosomal abnormality. Instead, they provide information about the number of copies detected in specific chromosomes. Here's how to interpret the results:

  • Normal results- It indicates two peaks for each of the analyzed chromosomes (13, 18, 21, X and Y). This indicates that two copies are present, one inherited from each parent, which is normal.
  • Abnormal results- 
  • An extra copy of a chromosome (trisomy) like Down syndrome (trisomy 21).-
  • Two peaks for a chromosome could suggest a partial or complete deletion (monosomy) or an extra copy (trisomy) depending on the context.

Who should take the QF- PCR test?

The QF-PCR test is not recommended for everyone during pregnancy. Here are some factors that a doctor might consider when discussing whether a QF-PCR test is right for you- 

  • High risk pregnancies
  • Abnormal results on prenatal screening tests
  • Ultrasound abnormalities

If you have any questions or concerns about the QF-PCR test, talk to your doctor.

Symptoms of QF-PCR Test

  • Facial abnormalities
  • Developmental delays
  • Growth problems
  • Birth defects
  • Seizures
  • Vision or hearing problems
  • Muscle weakness or hypotonia
  • Intellectual disability
  • Autism spectrum disorder (ASD)

Get QF-PCR Test for Prenatal Diagnosis 

During pregnancy, many parents worry about their baby's health. Prenatal diagnosis helps catch potential developmental issues early on. Traditionally, this could be a slow process. But, now there are new techniques like QF-PCR that are speeding things up. QF-PCR isn't just useful for spotting chromosomal abnormalities. It can also be used in multiple pregnancies to determine zygosity, which means whether twins are identical (monozygotic) or fraternal. This information is valuable for both parents and doctors during prenatal care.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a QF PCR test?
The QF-PCR test is a prenatal test that checks for chromosomal abnormalities in a developing baby. It analyzes a small sample of fetal DNA for specific areas of chromosomes 13, 18, 21, X and Y. The test helps to detect potential diseases like Down syndrome (trisomy 21) or Turner syndrome (monosomy X).
    What are the advantages of QF PCR?
    QF-PCR is beneficial in prenatal testing due to its speed and efficiency. The test analyzes a small sample of DNA to find out the common abnormalities. By making copies and checking fluorescence, it quickly detects potential issues like Down syndrome.
      What is the principle of QF PCR?
      QF-PCR relies on zooming in on specific chromosome regions (STRs) and amplifying them for better analysis. The test makes millions of copies of these regions and tags them with fluorescent markers. It counts the fluorescent markers, and shows the number of chromosome copies present. More fluorescence than expected indicates an extra chromosome (trisomy), while less suggests a missing one (monosomy).
        What is the cost of the QF PCR test in India?
        The QF PCR test cost is INR 6000 at Redcliffe Labs. If you want to book a test, then call our experts or download an App to schedule your appointment.
          How accurate is QF PCR?
          QF-PCR is 90% accurate to detect chromosomal abnormalities.
