The Prenatal Basic Panel is commonly used pre-conception or during the first trimester of pregnancy. This prenatal testing panel includes ABO Grouping & RHO Typing (Blood Typing), MMR Immunity, Hepatitis B Surface Antibody (Note: the Hepatitis B Surface Antibody test provides a qualitative result), Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, Syphilis RPR and HIV-abs. Turnaround time is typically 1-3 business days.
Some prenatal tests have suggested incubation periods and it varies per test. (Please refer to individual test descriptions for specific incubation periods.)
Chlamydia and Gonorrhea are urine tests. Client should withhold urination for at least 1-2 hours prior to specimen collection. Client should provide a first catch of urine, about 20-30 ml, from the initial stream into the collection cup and allow remainder of the stream to go into the toilet. Larger volumes may result in the dilution of the specimen and reduce sensitivity. Clients should not cleanse the genital area 1-2 hours prior to giving their urine specimen.
