A Guide for New Mothers: The Necessity of Gene Detection
Release Date 2023-06-02

The month of May provides us with the unique opportunity to honor the incredible women who have embarked on the beautiful journey of motherhood. Amidst the heartwarming celebrations, it is essential to note the continually changing landscape of maternal care and the importance of gene detection in ensuring the well-being of both mother and child. 


American doctors recently found that more than 70% of women opt to undergo genetic screening during their prenatal appointments. With such an increased statistic, this article investigates the necessity of genetic tests for new mothers. 

The Importance of Gene Detection

The introduction of genetic tests has significantly impacted obstetrics, allowing healthcare providers to detect genetic abnormalities during early pregnancy.

Gene detection, a rapidly advancing field in healthcare, has revolutionized how expectant mothers and newborns are cared for. By uncovering valuable genetic information, these tests offer vital insights into potential risks, enabling proactive measures to be taken for the well-being of both mother and child. 

The necessity of gene detection in these genetic tests cannot be overstated. By harnessing the power of genetic tests, healthcare professionals can identify potential risks, create personalized care plans, and guide expectant mothers through informed decision-making processes. By understanding these risks beforehand, mothers can collaborate with medical 

Two Significant Gene Detections for New Mothers and Newborns

Having advanced knowledge is crucial to ensure the health and well-being of expectant mothers and newborns. Two genetic testing tests can provide this essential information for better outcomes.

The Group B strep test for expectant mothers


Group B Streptococcus (GBS) is a common bacterium that can be present in the genital or gastrointestinal tracts of expectant mothers. While GBS is usually harmless in adults, it can pose severe risks to newborns if transmitted during childbirth. Neonatal sepsis, meningitis, and pneumonia can be caused by Group B streptococcal infection, which has a very high mortality rate. It is currently considered one of the most significant pathogens responsible for neonatal infections.

The GBS test involves a simple swab of the vagina and rectum, which is then analyzed for the presence of GBS bacteria. If positive, healthcare professionals will take the necessary precautions to significantly reduce the risk of transmitting GBS to the newborn. 

The Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA) test for newborns


The introduction of genetic tests has significantly impacted obstetrics, allowing healthcare providers to detect genetic abnormalities during early pregnancy.

SMA genetic testing is one of the primary genetic tests recommended for newborns. Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA) is a rare genetic disorder affecting motor neurons, leading to muscle weakness and potential disability. Early diagnosis is crucial, and SMA genetic testing identifies carriers of the gene mutation responsible and provides vital information that helps healthcare providers assess the risk and take necessary precautions to support the baby's well-being. 

The SMA test, often performed alongside routine newborn screening, involves analyzing a blood sample to detect the presence of the SMN1 gene. The production of a necessary protein for motor neuron function depends on this particular gene. In addition, healthcare professionals can diagnose and intervene promptly by identifying this absence or mutation. 

The Advantages of Tianlong's Gene Detection Kits

In genetic testing, accuracy, efficiency, and user-friendliness are paramount. Recognizing the growing demand for reliable diagnostic tools, Tianlong launched two cutting-edge products; the Group B Streptococcus (GBS) PCR Detection Kit and the Human Survival Motor Neuron 1 (SMN1) genetic test Kit-P124H. And here's why every expectant mother would find these kits extra useful.

1. Accurate performance and Optimized workflow

Tianlong's gene detection and gene testing kits have been meticulously designed to deliver precise, reliable results. Through advanced PCR technology, these kits ensure the accurate detection of specific genetic markers, enabling healthcare professionals to make informed decisions and provide appropriate care. 

2. Low sample concentration and User-friendly

The GBS PCR and SMN1 genetic test kits offer the advantage of low sample concentration requirements. This means that even with limited sample volumes, accurate testing can still be performed. These kits are also highly user-friendly. Each package has clear and intuitive instructions that guide lab technicians through testing.

3. High precision and Sensitivity

Precision and sensitivity are crucial aspects of genetic testing; these gene detection kits excel in these areas. By employing state-of-the-art technology and stringent quality control measures, these kits provide exceptional sensitivity, enabling the detection of even low levels of target genetic material. 

4. More accessible: CE and NMPA marked

Tianlong's commitment to quality and compliance is reflected in the CE and NMPA marks obtained for their gene detection kits. These certifications signify compliance with international quality standards and regulatory requirements. 

*It is important to note that while the GBS test results provide a clinical reference, they cannot be solely relied upon as the basis for diagnosis or exclusion of cases. Therefore, healthcare professionals should interpret the results in conjunction with other clinical findings and follow established guidelines for patient management.
