Aneuploidy of chromosomes 21, 18, 13, X and Y chromosomes are the most prevalent aneuploidies in live births. Using STR markers, Aneusure can detect tri and diallelic trisomies with speed and high accuracy.


The AneuSure® QF-PCR Diagnostic Testing kit is used for rapid prenatal diagnosis of chromosomal aneuploidies including Trisomy 21 (Down Syndrome or +21), Trisomy 18 (Edwards Syndrome or +18), Trisomy 13 (Patau Syndrome or +13) as well as for 47, XXY (Klinefelter Syndrome), 47, XXX (Triple X Syndrome), 45, X (Turner Syndrome) and other sex chromosomes aneuploidies. QF-PCR is a diagnostic procedure, but NIPT is a screening method. It is an alternative for confirmatory test following positive test results from NIPT.

AneuSure® Premium Features

  • Applicable to a range of DNA inputs – amniotic fluid (AF), chorionic villus (CVS), fetal tissue, etc.
  • Can be used by any of Genetek Direct PCR products like GT DBCGT DBC Blue, as well as direct amplification of Blood, Amniotic Fluid and other cultured cells, Chorionic Villi and other tissues using these lysis buffers (i.e. GT BLBGT AFLB and GT CVLB)
  • Easy to use mix

Product Details

The AneuSure® QF-PCR Aneuploidy Diagnostic Kit contains a total of 26 markers, which are distributed across autosomal chromosomes 21, 18 and 13 and sex chromosomes X & Y. The segmental duplication, 7X marker, is included in the kit for the differentiation of X chromosome monosomy from homozygosity (i.e., it quantifies chromosome X for more accurate detection of Turner Syndrome). Primer design for this kit followed the European Molecular Genetics Quality Network guidelines.

QF-PCR is a diagnostic procedure, but NIPT is a screening method. It is a method of choice for confirmatory test following positive test results from NIPT. Please consult the AneuSure® user manual for more detailed information.

AneuSure® performance has been validated with extensive testing using Applied Biosystems TM 3500/xl and 3130/xl platforms. It has been tested for detection and analysis of more than 1000 fetal samples. It is intended to be used with DNA from blood, amniotic fluid cells, CVS, and fetal cells from abortus material.

For research use only. Not for use in diagnostic procedures.

Comparison Table

The table shows number of markers for each Genetek QF-PCR kit. There are 26 markers in the AneuSure, 28 in the AneuSure Plus, 32 in the AneuSure Extra, 34 in AneuSure Extra Plus, 32 in AneuSure Max and 34 in AneuSure Max Plus kits. There are 7 segmental duplications in the AneuSure Extra and AneuSure Extra Plus. There are 2 segmental duplication and 5 additional STR markers in AneuSure Max and AneuSure Max Plus kits. The availability of the above-mentioned kits provide medical geneticists with many powerful options to choose from, considering the requirements of each case. Our innovative inclusion of SMA detection power (by addition of SMN1 and SMN2 exon 7 deletion and conversion in AneuSure Plus, AneuSure Extra Plus and AneuSure Max Plus kits) creates a considerable advantage for any laboratory to detect fetuses who may be normal for aneuploidy but affected with a deadly and costly disease like SMA.

A table compares Genetek Biopharma’s range of QF-PCR kits for the detection of chromosomal aneuploidies. The fetal samples can be used directly, after first or second trimester tests or follow up after NIPT result. Some kits also detect exon-7 deletion in 5q SMA.


This kit is compatible with 5-dye capillary electrophoresis systems like ABI 3130/xl, 3500/xL, and SeqStudio Genetic Analyzers from Thermo Fisher Scientific with either 30, 50, or 80 cm capillaries. ​

This kit can be used on various sources of DNA including DNA extracted from various sources or DNA obtained using any of extraction free (direct) materials from Genetek such as GT AFLB (Amniotic Fluid Lysis Buffer), GT CVLB (Chorionic Villus Lysis Buffer, GT BLB (Blood Lysis Buffer), and filter papers (GT DBC or GT DBC Blue).

There are numerous studies on the use of QF-PCR. One detailed “Best Practice Guideline” for using QF-PCR is “ACGS best practice guidelines for use of Quantitative Fluorescence-PCR for the detection of aneuploidy” by Mann et al. (2018).
