Non-Invasive Prenatal Testing

We know that each pregnancy is different, that is why you can choose the test that is most suitable for you, to give you peace of mind

     

Non-invasive Prenatal Testing

During pregnancy, some fragments of the foetal DNA circulate in the maternal blood and are detectable starting from the 7th week of gestation. The circulating foetal DNA quantity increases with the increasing gestational period, and from the 9th or 10th week of gestation it is sufficient to guarantee a highly specific and sensitive result of the non-invasive prenatal screening tests.

Non-invasive prenatal testing offers early genetic screening for chromosomal conditions using a sample of maternal blood.

Chromosomal Aneuploidy:

The tests screen for chromosomal abnormalities in the foetus, forexample, the presence of whole extra chromosome (trisomy) such as DownSyndrome, Edwards Syndrome, Patau Syndrome, Trisomy X, Klinefelter Syndrome,and Jacobs Syndrome, or absence of whole chromosomes (monosomy), such as TurnerSyndrome.

NIPT eliminates any risk ofmiscarriage or other adverse outcomes that are associated with invasive testingprocedures such as amniocentesis or chorionic villus sampling (CVS)
