The Division of Medical Screening and Special Testing, part of the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine, offers specialized laboratory testing in prenatal screening, reproductive endocrinology, and women's health, with the highest quality, rapid turnaround and reasonable cost.

From research to clinical practice, our laboratory has developed both a national and international reputation in these areas of testing. We were involved in the development of, and were the first academic program in the U.S. to offer the Quad test for prenatal screening. We also served as the central laboratory in the FASTER Trial, a large-scale, national intervention trial sponsored by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to compare first and second trimester screening methods. We have now implemented a new generation of screening using cell-free DNA in maternal plasma.

Our laboratory is among the most experienced in the U.S. in the measurement of inhibin A, inhibin B and related proteins, and was the first to report on the use of inhibin types in prenatal screening and testing for ovarian reserve.
