About the Non Invasive Prenatal Screening Test - NIPT/NIPS

Non-invasive prenatal testing (NIPT) is a screening test that is used to assess the risk of certain chromosomal abnormalities in a developing fetus. NIPT is typically performed during the first or second trimester of pregnancy / gestational age 11 to 17 weeks, and is used to screen for conditions such as Down syndrome (trisomy 21), trisomy 13, and trisomy 18.

NIPT is a blood test that analyzes fetal DNA that is present in the mother's bloodstream. The test is considered to be non-invasive because it does not involve any risk to the fetus and does not require a procedure such as amniocentesis (a procedure in which a sample of amniotic fluid is taken for testing).

NIPT can provide valuable information about the risk of certain chromosomal abnormalities in a developing fetus. If the NIPT results indicate an increased risk of a chromosomal abnormality, the healthcare provider may recommend further testing to confirm the diagnosis.

NIPT test is offered in three variants - 

  • NIPT Basic
  • NIPT Advance 
  • NIPT Basic Twin

 NIPT does not test for the gender of the fetus

Whats the difference between NIPT Basic v/s NIPT Advanced

Basic screens for 5 Chromosomes

Advanced screens for 22 Chromosomes

Accuracy and Results of NIPT Test 

The accuracy of NIPT depends on several factors, including the stage of pregnancy, the specific condition being tested for, and the specific NIPT test being used.

Overall, NIPT has a high sensitivity (the ability to correctly identify individuals with the condition being tested for) and a high negative predictive value (the ability to correctly identify individuals without the condition). This means that NIPT is very good at identifying women who are at low risk of having a baby with a chromosomal abnormality.

There are several different NIPT tests available, and the specific test used will determine the results of the test. In general, NIPT results are reported as low risk or high risk for a specific chromosomal abnormality.

If the NIPT results indicate a low risk for a chromosomal abnormality, it means that the risk of the baby having the condition is very low. If the NIPT results indicate a high risk for a chromosomal abnormality, it means that the risk of the baby having the condition is higher than average

However, NIPT is not a diagnostic test, and it is not 100% accurate. If the NIPT results indicate an increased risk of a chromosomal abnormality, the healthcare provider may recommend further testing to confirm the diagnosis.


How is NIPT test performed   

  • Sample collection require in special tube (Streak Tube 10 ml) & by Prior appointment.
  • We Required filled Test Requisition Form which include clinician stamp, Ultra Sound report (USG), Dual and Quadruple Marker Report, Photo Identification Proof.     

Is NIPT recommended for all pregnant women?

NIPT is not recommended for all pregnant women, but it may be offered to women who are at increased risk of having a baby with a chromosomal abnormality due to their age or other risk factors. It is important to discuss the benefits and limitations of NIPT with a healthcare provider to determine if the test is right for you

 

  • The woman is above 30 years of age.
  • A high risk for abnormality is found through serum screening.
  • Certain abnormalities on ultrasound are identified.
  • There is a family history of chromosomal conditions or birth defects.
  • Couples have had a child with a chromosomal disorder.
  • A couple has a history of infertility or pregnancy loss (miscarriages or stillbirths)
