The triple marker screen test is performed in a hospital, clinic, doctor’s office, or laboratory. The procedure is comparable to that of any other blood test.
Step 1: The technician will first instruct you to extend your arm and make a fist. This will aid him in locating your vein.
Step 2: The doctor will next wrap a strap over the patient’s arm and firmly secure this area.
Step 3: The technician will next use an antibacterial and antiseptic wipe to clean the area.
Step 4: A needle attached to a vial used for blood storage will then be inserted.
Step 5: Once the vial is full, the technician will remove it and wipe the region with an antiseptic and antibacterial swab.
Step 6: The blood sample will then be submitted to a facility for analysis, where a biochemist will assess it.
Step 7: The results will then be entered into the software and transmitted to the doctor. The doctor will then inform you of the outcome.
The triple marker screen tests have no negative effects. You may feel some discomfort as a result of the needle used to draw blood, but this will pass rapidly.
