How is NIPT performed?
Update Time:2018-01-03

NIPT involves only a quick blood draw with a needle and syringe, so it's safe for you and your baby. All you need to do is offer up your arm at a clinic or lab. Your sample is then sent to a lab, where a technician will look at the cfDNA (cell-free DNA) in your blood for signs of abnormalities.

Once the results of your NIPT are back, your doctor will likely pair them with the results of your first-trimester ultrasound or nuchal translucency screening to determine whether further testing is needed. If it is positive, your doctor may recommend following up with amniocentesis or CVS to confirm the result and check for other problems NIPT cannot detect.
