  • Allina Health facilities should order Prenatal DNA Sendout (LAB12637) which has been approved by the Test Formulary Committee and the OB/Gyn Service Line.
  • Sites other than Allina Health: Due to the requirement for patient informed consent, the need for special request forms, and the potential for degradation of DNA in the specimens if transport is delayed, these specimens must be sent directly from the collecting site to the performing laboratory. Contact Natera to establish an account and obtain specimen collection and shipping kits.
