perkinelmer-logo-smallPerkinElmer’s Statistical Services™ provides laboratories with many options to have screening performance data analyzed with the primary goal of enhancing quality of the screening program.

Statistical Services offers a complete solution including comprehensive statistical analysis of laboratory performance, recommendations on possible improvement opportunities, guidance with updating LifeCycle™* and Pre-eclampsia Predictor™* (PerkinElmer’s prenatal and maternal screening applications), and exclusive access to a web portal allowing laboratories to review and filter their performance data as needed.

  • Statistical audit of your prenatal program
  • Continuous or one-time data analysis options
  • Guidance and recommendations on how to improve quality

Prenatal eReports™


Provides the ability to perform remote risk calculation

Prenatal eReports™ allows remote users the ability to access laboratory reports and perform data entry of patient demographics and ultrasound measurements. The application improves efficiency for the lab while also helping to reduce costs.

This web tool also provides the ability to retrieve calculated risks from the laboratory immediately after remote data entry is done. Risk calculation is performed in LifeCycle™ as soon as the remote data is submitted– and therefore can be presented back to the remote user with no delay.
