Marylebone Diagnostic Centre offers a range of advanced Non-Invasive Prenatal Testing (NIPT) options to provide expectant parents with valuable insights into their baby’s genetic health. Our NIPT tests utilize cutting-edge technology to analyze cell-free DNA from the mother’s bloodstream, offering accurate and reliable screening for common chromosomal abnormalities and genetic conditions.

NIPT 3

NIPT 3 is a comprehensive prenatal screening test that analyzes the fetal DNA for three common chromosomal abnormalities: Trisomy 21 (Down syndrome), Trisomy 18 (Edwards syndrome), and Trisomy 13 (Patau syndrome). This test provides expectant parents with early information about their baby's risk of these conditions, helping them make informed decisions about their pregnancy and healthcare.

NIPT 5

NIPT 5 is an expanded prenatal screening test that analyzes the fetal DNA for five common chromosomal abnormalities: Trisomy 21 (Down syndrome), Trisomy 18 (Edwards syndrome), Trisomy 13 (Patau syndrome), as well as sex chromosome aneuploidies (such as Turner syndrome and Klinefelter syndrome). This test offers expectant parents additional information about their baby's genetic health, providing a more comprehensive assessment of chromosomal abnormalities.

NIPT 5 + DiGeorge

NIPT 5 + DiGeorge is an advanced prenatal screening test that combines the analysis of the fetal DNA for five common chromosomal abnormalities (Trisomy 21, Trisomy 18, Trisomy 13, and sex chromosome aneuploidies) with screening for DiGeorge syndrome (22q11.2 deletion syndrome). This comprehensive test provides expectant parents with a thorough evaluation of their baby's genetic health, including the detection of a chromosomal microdeletion associated with DiGeorge syndrome.

Benefits

Our NIPT tests offer accurate and reliable screening for common chromosomal abnormalities and genetic conditions, providing expectant parents with valuable information about their baby’s health.

NIPT is a non-invasive prenatal screening test that poses no risk to the mother or baby, as it requires only a simple blood draw from the mother’s arm.

NIPT can be performed as early as 10 weeks into the pregnancy, allowing for early detection of genetic abnormalities and timely intervention if necessary.

NIPT provides expectant parents with peace of mind by offering reassurance about their baby’s health and reducing uncertainty during pregnancy.

FAQs

NIPT is a prenatal screening test that analyzes cell-free DNA from the mother’s bloodstream to assess the risk of chromosomal abnormalities and genetic conditions in the unborn baby, without the need for invasive procedures such as amniocentesis or chorionic villus sampling (CVS).

NIPT is performed using a simple blood test from the expectant mother, typically after 10 weeks of pregnancy. The maternal blood sample is analyzed to detect and quantify cell-free DNA fragments originating from the placenta and fetus, allowing for the assessment of chromosomal abnormalities and genetic conditions.

NIPT is recommended for pregnant women seeking non-invasive screening for common chromosomal abnormalities and genetic conditions in their unborn baby, particularly those at increased risk based on maternal age, ultrasound findings, or personal/family history of genetic disorders.

Coverage for NIPT may vary depending on your insurance provider and specific policy. We recommend contacting your insurance company to inquire about coverage options for prenatal screening tests.

The turnaround time for NIPT results varies but typically ranges from 7 to 14 days from the time the laboratory receives the maternal blood sample.
