The use of fetal fibronectin (fFN) testing can help to reduce unnecessary admissions, shorten hospitalisations and help you direct care and resources to the patients who need it most.

Preterm labour can be associated with substantial anxiety for patients. Hospitals can use fFN testing to help themselves and their patients to truly distinguish between those who are at risk of preterm labour from those who are at very low risk. This allows you to achieve:

  • Timely and appropriate interventions
  • Hospitalisation of only those patients at greatest risk of preterm delivery
  • Effective transport of preterm labour patients to higher, more appropriate level of care
  • Cost-effectiveness for the NHS
  • Avoidance of unnecessary treatments, interventions, in-utero transfers and medications
  • Staff availability for cases with the greatest medical needs and support manageable caseloads
