NIPT is a non-invasive prenatal screening test that analyses cell-free fetal DNA (cfDNA) in maternal plasma. It has greater sensitivity and specificity compared to traditional serum screening, meaning a higher detection rate and fewer false positive results.
percept NIPT offers routine assessment of all 23 pairs of chromosomes. This genome-wide approach can detect the broadest range of chromosomal conditions when compared to standard NIPT options (that screen for T21, T18, T13 and sex chromosome conditions).
