Software-Update: Thermo Scientific B·R·A·H·M·S Fast Screen pre I plus V 1.3 for all KRYPTOR systems

Published on: 11/3/2011

Thermo Scientific Biomarkers has brought an Update of the CE marked prenatal screening software B·R·A·H·M·S Fast Screen pre I plus onto the market. The new version 1.3 of the prenatal screening software is available as of November 2011 - currently deliverable in the following languages: German, English and French.


In the context of prenatal screening various examinations are carried out in order to detect early fetal abnormalities or chromosomal aberrations (trisomy 21). These include, among other things, blood tests and ultrasound examination (nuchal translucency measurement). By using the B·R·A·H·M·S Fast Screen pre I plus V 1.3 an individual risk regarding the most common chromosomal anomalies is calculated from various input parameters such as maternal age, gestational age, blood and ultrasound results as well as the medical history. The results of this combined analysis serve as a basis for further diagnostic measures.


With the Update B·R·A·H·M·S Fast Screen pre I plus V 1.3 is not only applicable for the first and second trimester screening but also for the so-called Integrated Sequential Screening. The results of the ultrasound examination in the first trimester (nuchal translucency measurement) are combined with the results of the blood tests in the second trimester. The license key for the first trimester and the Integrated Sequential Screening is only made available to doctors who are certified by the Fetal Medicine Foundation (FMF-Germany). Furthermore, the software offers the advantage of exporting the results into Excel, extracting data from the laboratory-information-system or saving them there. By that, the laboratory organization is optimized.
