NIPT by GenePlanet is a non-invasive prenatal test (often called NIPT) to detect Down syndrome and certain other genetic malformations caused by additional or missing genetic information in the child's DNA.
The test only requires a small sample of the mother's blood and is available from the 10th week of pregnancy onward. The results are available in 6-8 working days.
Our test is more accurate than traditional screening tests and, compared to invasive methods such as amniocentesis, does not pose any risk to the mother or the child.
Our test primarily detects the three most common trisomies present at birth: Down, Edwards and Patau syndrome. It is also possible to test for some other chromosomal abnormalities. Independent studies, including the largest study on the use of NIPT in clinical practice, which included 147,000 women, showed that NIPT by GenePlanet detects these deficiencies with 99 % sensitivity.
The test also offers additional testing options for other genetic anomalies, such as deletion syndromes and aneuploidy of sex chromosomes. You also have an option to find out your child's gender.
It is important that you consult your doctor before each genetic test in order to understand the abnormalities that can be detected by the test.
