This email was sent to you because you were identified as the biological parent of a child who will be screened with Sema4 Natalis. To help our clinical experts interpret a child’s results, we strongly recommend that both biological parents also provide DNA samples. Analyzing the parents’ DNA can help confirm or rule out a positive result if a variant (or change) is detected in the child’s DNA. While a false positive is very unlikely, this simple step may help prevent unnecessary worry for you and your family. The parents’ samples will only be analyzed if a variant (or change) is detected in the child’s DNA.
If you need more information on why this test was ordered, please contact the parent or legal guardian that purchased the test. Their name will be in the consent email sent to you.
