Our DNA carries all the genetic information we require for normal health and development. It exists in our cells as 23 pairs of chromosomes. During pregnancy, chromosomal abnormalities can arise in the developing baby as a result of incorrect egg or sperm formation, or during the earliest stages of the baby’s development. These chromosomal abnormalities can significantly affect the health and well-being of a baby and it is important to identify any abnormalities as early as possible.
NIPT delivers a clear result for chromosomal abnormalities where an extra copy of one chromosome is present (Trisomy). Down syndrome, the most common chromosomal abnormality can be detected with an accuracy rate of >99,9%. NIPT also screens for changes in the number of X or Y chromosomes. The test is also suitable if you are pregnant with twins.
