What is NIPT?
Non-Invasive Prenatal Testing (NIPT) is a screening test that takes a look at the infant’s DNA in the mother’s circulatory system to distinguish if the infant is influenced by certain chromosomal disease.
Why have NIPT?
At present, all pregnant ladies can have a combined serum screening test which comprises a blood test and an ultrasound check. This test is less touchy than NIPT (86% recognition rate for Down’s Syndrome and 80% identification for Edwards’ and Patau’s Syndromes).
