Clinical Information:
Non-Invasive Prenatal Testing (NIPT) is a non-invasive test for pregnant women which estimates the risk of a fetus having chromosomal abnormalities. The non-invasive prenatal testing (NIPT) is an advanced screening test using next - generation sequencing technology that is carried out on a small maternal blood sample. During pregnancy, the placenta leaks cell-free DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) which circulates in the maternal bloodstream. As a result, a maternal blood sample contains a mixture of fetal-placental and maternal circulating cell-free DNA. The non-invasive prenatal testing (NIPT) directly measures the amount of this cell-free DNA and can detect chromosomal abnormalities.
