Cost saving, first line screening
for all pregnant women.

Non-invasive screening for the most commmon chromosomal aneuploidies
as early as 10 weeks gestation, using a single maternal blood draw.

OVERVIEW

Non Invasive Prenatal Testing

NIPT, also known as cell-free DNA (cfDNA) screening, is a cutting edge aneuploidy screening option. NIPT safely and noninvasively screens for the most common chromosomal aneuploidies as early as 10 weeks gestation, using a single maternal blood draw. 

It detects abnormalities in chromosomes such as

  • Trisomy 21 (Down syndrome)
  • Trisomy 18 (Edwards syndrome)
  • Trisomy 13 (Patau Syndrome)

How does NIPT differ from traditional serum screening methods?

  • Highest reported detecting rate for Down syndrome
  • Lowest reported false positive rate for Down syndrome
  • Broadest screening window (performed as early as 10 weeks gestation until term)

0.1% False Positive Rates with NIPT

Reduction in need for confirmatory invasive procedures

Viable option for first line screen in general pregnancy population

What are microdeletions?

Microdeletions are chromosomal disorders caused by small missing pieces of chromosome material. Some occur more commonly in a specific area of a particular chromosome and have been linked to known genetic syndromes. Most occur by chance, rather than by being inherited from a parent, and can occur with no prior family history and without other risk factors.

Why choose non-invasive prenatal testing?

The capabilities of NIPT have been expanded to help detect 5 specifcing microdeletion regions. By doing so, the NIPT microdeletion panel can provide valuable information to aid in pregnancy management and prepartion for newborn care.
