Plug for Sequenom?[edit]

Why is this sentence in the article? "In 2011, Sequenom announced the launch of MaterniT 21, a non-invasive blood test with a high level of accuracy in detecting Down syndrome" It seems a bit spammy to me. Why is there a mention of a branded blood test product within an article about ultrasound scan techniques? But I'm no expert so thought I'd log it here for discussion. 77.99.138.234 (talk) 14:31, 4 February 2014 (UTC)
