Service Description

NIPT stands for non-invasive prenatal testing. It’s a chromosome screening test offered during pregnancy to see if the fetus is at risk for having conditions such as Down syndrome (trisomy 21), trisomy 18 (Edwards syndrome) and trisomy 13 (Patau syndrome). The test can also determine the sex of the fetus. It’s done by taking a sample of your blood, which also contains fragments of DNA from the fetus.
