Omega-3 status testing now available

21 April 2021

SA Pathology now provides testing omega-3 levels for women with singleton pregnancies, with the data informing the South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute (SAHMRI)’s world-leading study assessing the efficacy of omega-3 supplementation in reducing early preterm births.

Requesting providers may offer the omega-3 status test to all women with singleton pregnancies before 20 weeks’ gestation. SA Pathology and SAHMRI perform Omega-3 analysis at no cost to the patient or health service using serum collected as part of the established SAMSAS program.

For further information about omega-3 testing and results interpretation, please visit sahmri.org/omega3 or call the omega-3 status test hotline on 0438 273 155.

To order the maternal serum screening test request form, please call the SAMSAS Program on (08) 8161 7285.
