Noninvasive Prenatal Testing (NIPT) Sequenom


Sequenom noninvasive prenatal testing (NIPT) is a chromosome counting method that analyzes genetic information in fetal cell-free DNA in maternal blood to determine risk for specific fetal chromosomal and subchromosomal abnormalities.

We offer two noninvasive prenatal testing options through Sequenom: MaterniT21 PLUS, which screens for chromosomal abnormalities such as trisomies 21, 18, and 13 and several microdeletion syndromes, and MaterniT GENOME, a genome-wide NIPT.
