What is Generation non-invasive prenatal testing?

Non-invasive prenatal testing (NIPT) is a revolutionary advance in prenatal screening which can detect genetic material (DNA) from the placenta in a blood test from the mother. In the past, the ability to test DNA from the fetus required much more invasive methods such as amniocentesis or placental biopsies, which are not without risks to mothers and their babies. NIPT is a simple and highly accurate test which may help avoid more invasive techniques of prenatal testing.

The Generation suite of non-invasive prenatal tests (NIPT) screens for the most common chromosomal abnormalities that can affect your baby’s future health using a simple blood test. The Generation NIPT options are available from as early as the 10th week of pregnancy, for both singleton and twin pregnancies.
