The NIPT prenatal test is a noninvasive prenatal screening test that sequenced fetal DNA (genetic material) from pregnant women’s blood to detect chromosomal (chromosomal) abnormalities. NIPT is a highly accurate, safe, and simple sample collection process used to detect fetal chromosomal (chromosomal) abnormalities.
Compared with methods such as ultrasound, amniocentesis, and placental analysis, the NIPT test has many advantages. Only need from 7-10 ml of peripheral blood of pregnant women, NIPT analysis gives highly accurate results, safe for both mother and fetus.
The importance of prenatal screening blood tests
Prenatal screening tests are extremely important for both mother and fetus:
- Helping pregnant women go through a smooth pregnancy and give birth to a healthy baby.
- Help the mother decide whether to have another baby or not, when the fetus is found to have a birth defect.
- Plan the best care for a child with a birth defect when the pregnant mother intends to keep the pregnancy.
- Reduce anxiety about birth defe

NIPT is recommended for all pregnant women from the 9th week of pregnancy until the end of pregnancy, especially women who are at high risk of having a baby with genetic syndromes such as:
- All pregnant women, especially pregnant women aged 35 and over
- Have a history of consecutive miscarriages (two or more times)
- There is a history of stillbirth, malformation, or unexplained miscarriage.
- Double test/Triple test results with high risk or threshold risk.
