Quadruple test more commonly known as quad screen treatment or quad marker screen is a diagnosis done on pregnant women to give a clear insight and useful information about her pregnancy. It also determines whether or not the baby is carrying any risk of birth defects although the exact nature of problem or defect is not detected. For example, cholesterol screen done on a person determines that a person with high cholesterol level is susceptible to heart diseases. But it does not necessarily say that the person has got a heart disease. The pregnancy screening test is usually prescribed by gynaecologists between the 15th and 22nd weeks of the pregnancy. The procedure involves drawing a small amount of blood sample from the woman&rsquo,s vein and sending it across to the lab for testing purpose. The blood sample thus drawn is tested to detect any kind of defect or problem in the foetus's brain or spinal cord. Additionally it is also used to see if the child is suffering from any kind of genetic disorders or abnormality. The quad screen test is widely practised by gynaecologists across the globe and is reported as one of the safest, effective and a relatively inexpensive form of screening test for parents who are primarily concerned about the baby's health. It carries no risk to the baby and involves only a small amount of blood sample taken only from the mother. Depending upon the clinic and your gynaecologist, the screening test cost ranges from $35 to $50.
