What is NIPT ?

NIPT is a safe and non-Invasive screening test that can be performed as early as 10 weeks to detect prenatal chromosomal anomalies. Non-invasive prenatal testing (NIPT analyses cell-free DNA circulating in the pregnant

mother’s blood. It is a new option in prenatal screening for Down syndrome (trisomy 21), Edward Syndrome (trisomy 18), Patau Syndrome (Trisomy 13), optional gender detection.

Who can take the test?

All pregnant women, irrespective of age or risk, who are 10 weeks or over into their pregnancy. (NIPT is endorsed by American College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (ACOG) /Society for Maternal-Fetal Medicine (SMFM) for all pregnant mothers regardless of age or risk).

What does it test for?

  • Down Syndrome (Trisomy 21) 

  • Edwards Syndrome (Trisomy 18) 

  • Patau Syndrome (Trisomy 13) 

  • Gender- Male (XY) Female (XX) 

What is a trisomy

Normally, all cells in the human body have 46 chromosomes, made up of 23 pairs of chromosomes. These 23 pairs of chromosomes contain all of the DNA to determine the health of the baby. Certain genetic anomalies can occur when a baby develops three copies of a particular chromosome instead of two. The risk of having a chromosomal condition increases as the mother gets older.
