A Double marker test is a type of test that is mainly given to pregnant women to determine any chromosomal malformation in the foetus. This test also plays a vital role in the detection of any kind of neurological conditions in the fetus, such as down’s syndrome or Edward’s Syndrome. Chromosomal abnormalities in the foetus can cause serious developmental deformities and lead to various health problems in the child post-birth, but such abnormalities are extremely rare.

The Double Marker Test is especially given to pregnant women above 35 years of age and those who have a family history of birth defects and a history of insulin-dependent type 1 diabetes.

What is the double marker test?

A double marker test is a specific blood test performed on pregnant women to detect any chromosomal malformations in the fetus. This test is usually recommended for women above 35 years of age because they are at high risk of giving birth to a baby with chromosomal abnormalities. However, even younger women who are less than 35 years of age are also asked to undergo this test during pregnancy.

A Double Marker Test is done with an ultrasound test and is done with a blood sample. The Double Marker Test looks for two markers, namely Free Beta hCG (human chorionic gonadotrophin) and PAPPA (Pregnancy-associated plasma protein A).

Free Beta hCG is a glycoprotein hormone produced by the placenta during pregnancy. Its high level shows a higher risk of Trisomy 18 and Down’s syndrome.

PAPPA is a vital plasma protein. A low level of plasma protein shows the risk of down syndrome.

The test readings are signified in terms of screen positive, high risk, and screen negative.
