What is a NIPT test

Non-Invasive Prenatal Test (NIPT), also known as Non-Invasive Prenatal Screening (NIPS), is a test for pregnant women to screen the risk of their baby being born with certain genetic disorders. The test analyzes the baby's DNA that has been passed to the mother's bloodstream during pregnancy. The NIPT Test primarily analyzes the risk of Down Syndrome (Trisomy 21), Edwards Syndrome (Trisomy 18), and Patau Syndrome (Trisomy 13).
A NIPT Test is carried out by simply drawing blood from the mother after 10 weeks into pregnancy. The NIPT Test can reveal the baby's gender during the first trimester, while traditional ultrasound can reveal the gender during the second trimester.

Testimonials

I am grateful for Luma's guidance through my first trimester of pregnancy. I ordered my NIPT test very easily via Line, arranged for the nurse to come to my place and received the results in less than a week, just in time for my visit to the OBGYN.

More about NIPT Test – Frequently Asked Questions

How accurate are the results of a NIPT test?

Accuracy rates depends on the chromosome.

How does a NIPT test work?

The NIPT test examines cell-free DNA (cfDNA) released from the placenta into the mother’s bloodstream. The NIPT test detects chromosomal abnormalities within this fetal cfDNA present in the mother’s blood, with a simple blood draw.

How do I read the results of a NIPT test?

A NIPT test is a screening test — not a diagnostic test. This means that it can’t diagnose a genetic condition with certainty. It can, however, predict whether the risk of a genetic condition is high or low. Therefore, you need to have the results read by a professional. We strongly recommend you to take the results to your OBGYN to interpret the results.

Who should get a NIPT test?

Any pregnant women could get a NIPT test but it is especially recommended for pregnant women:

– aged over 35 years old

– who have a personal/family history of chromosomal disorder (or from the baby’s father)

Does Luma NIPT test give fetal sex?

Yes, our package includes the option of having fetal sex reported.

Is NIPT test risky?

NIPT test is performed by collecting blood sample which poses no threat to fetus.

Where the blood sample is examined and analyzed?

The blood sample will be sent GC Genome, a leading clinical genomic laboratory in South Korea. Our laboratory service accredited by the College of American Pathologists (CAP) from the USA which is the largest association to provide a laboratory accreditation and is a gold standard in laboratory quality assurance.

Who perform blood draw?

Our nurse practitioner will come to your preferred place and collect the blood sample.

What happens if the test results come back mentionng a high risk for a disorder?

We recommend you to talk to your doctor for next course of action that may include further testing.
