Hi doctor,

My wife is pregnant. Her doctor has suggested us to get a Quadruple marker or triple marker study test. Why does he suggest this test? What is the use of that test?

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • It is done to screen for the possibility of certain birth defects in the baby like Down's syndrome, abnormalities of the brain and spinal cord.
  • The quadruple test or triple marker test should be performed during the 15th and 20th week of pregnancy.
