Down Syndrome Test in Development

SAN DIEGO -- Genetic test maker Sequenom Inc. said Monday it will collaborate with Illumina on a new test that detects fetal abnormalities that can lead to Down syndrome.

Under the agreement Sequenom will use Illumina's genetic sequencing equipment and other technology to develop a test for pregnant women that can detect high levels of chromosome 21, which is associated with Down syndrome.
