    Nova Clinic is glad to offer their patients a genetic screening for fetal chromosomal mutations through the analysis of the mother’s blood sample with the help of next-generation sequencing (NGS) technique.


    Non-invasive genetic test helps detect most wide-spread chromosomal pathologies:

    • Down’s syndrome
    • Edwards' syndrome
    • Patau's syndrome
    • Klinefelter's syndrome
    • Turner's syndrome

    A patient receives the geneticist’s medical conclusion as well as the results of the test.

    Advantages of non-invasive prenatal test

    • Safety

    There is no contact with an embryo’s membrane, which, otherwise, may cause miscarriages or other complications. A venous blood sample collected from a woman is quite enough to perform the test. All these are safe both for the mother and the fetus.

    • High accuracy

    The non-invasive test uses fetal DNA, which, unlike an ultrasound and a biochemical screening, is a direct diagnostic technique with accuracy up to 99,9%. It should be also noted that the percentage of inaccurate (false-positive) results is inferior than 0,1% .

    Indications

    The test can be recommended to all pregnant women who want to obtain additional information on their babies’ health condition. However, the test is usually recommended to women running a high risk of having a baby with chromosomal mutations:

    • when a women is over 35
    • when a man is over 42
    • ultrasound or a biochemical screening indicate to a high risk of developing a chromosomal pathology
    • balanced chromosomal alteration has been found in one of the parents

    Restrictions on a non-invasive prenatal diagnosis

    • pregnancy term is less than 10 weeks
    • multifetal pregnancy
    • blood transfusion (over two recent years)
    • organ transplant operations or treatment with stem cells
    • oncological diseases
    • IVF with donor egg cells
    • surrogacy

    Non-invasive prenatal diagnosis includes the following steps

    • collection of a venous blood sample
    • blood sample screening for fetal chromosomal pathologies
    • calculation of an individual risk of having a baby with chromosomal mutations
    • geneticist’s medical conclusion on the mother’s health condition
