Answer: Hello dear, it's a screening test done by checking HCG, estriol and AFP from mother's blood sample. Usually done between 19 to 21 weeks. AFP is a protein produced by baby. If AFP levels are high, it may indicate some nerual tube defects or any other congenital defects or abnormalities. So this is a screening test to detect these defects in baby. Hope this helps.
