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 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 test.

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, for example, the presence of whole extra chromosome (trisomy) such as Down Syndrome, Edwards Syndrome, Patau Syndrome, Trisomy X, Klinefelter Syndrome, and Jacobs Syndrome, or absence of whole chromosomes (monosomy), such as Turner Syndrome.

NIPT eliminates any risk of miscarriage, or other adverse outcomes that are associated with invasive testing procedures such as amniocentesis or chorionic villus sampling (CVS)

Important: Before ordering and paying for the test and kit, please ensure that your physician is able to support you in the NIPT process.
