Why a non-invasive prenatal test?

Non-invasive prenatal tests can prevent the need for about 98% of invasive tests in patients at risk for T211.

* The current standard for detecting prenatal chromosomal alterations requires
the use of invasive techniques (amniocentesis and chorionic villus biopsy), which carry a risk between 0.5%-2% of spontaneous abortion.

* NACE® provides reliable information which avoids the need for unnecessary invasive techniques.

According to data from the 2012 European Registry for Prenatal Diagnosis2, abnormalities
in chromosomes 21, 18, and 13 represent 71% of all chromosomal alterations detected.

Microdeletions are chromosomal diseases caused by small losses in chromosomal material. The majority occur by chance, without a family history or other risk factors such as advanced age. These syndromes are generally associated with intellectual disability and malformation of dierent organs.

The NACE® Extended 24 panel of microdeletions provides physicians with a new option for a non-invasive assay/test in certain clinical situations.

The NACE® Extended 24 panel of microdeletions has been validated with clinical samples and real analyses. Its optimized algorithm deals with the complexities of these specific chromosomal regions to provide accurate answers about the loss of genetic material. The result is overall better performance, including a low false-positive rate in comparison with other tests and the lowest failure rate in the sector for this type of assay.3
