Why NACE® and NACE 24®?
- Delivery of NACE® test results in 3 business days.
- Valid from the 10th week of pregnancy onwards
- Most robust tests on the market: results obtained in nearly 100% of cases
- The number of cases in which a second blood extraction is required is less than 0.07%, the lowest rate in the market
- Clinically validated
- Includes genetic counselling
- Includes a confirmation test, in the case of a positive result, without additional cost
- It is valid for women whose pregnancy was achieved via in vitro fertilization, including gestations resulting from donated oocytes.
Who can take this test?
- These tests are recommended for women who want to rule out the most commonly detected fetal chromosomal alterations without putting their pregnancy at risk. They are especially recommended for women with a high risk of chromosomal abnormalities after first trimester screening, those with previous Down syndrome pregnancies, or to detect any alterations suspected from ultrasounds.
- NACE and NACE 24 can also be used by women whose pregnancy was achieved via in vitro fertilization, including gestations resulting from donated oocytes.
- The NACE non-invasive prenatal test is valid in single and twin* gestations.
*In these cases it does not provide information on the gender of the fetuses.
How reliable is the non-invasive prenatal test?
- Nace and Nace Extended 24 are the most robust tests available on the market: they obtain results in nearly 100% of cases. Less than 0.07% of tests require a second blood extraction, the lowest rate in the market. This prevents delays in results delivery.
- Both tests detect fetuses with Down syndrome with very high precision, as well as other anomalies (chromosomes 18, 13, X, and Y), or all the 24 chromosomes. However, they do not analyze every possible problem, genetic or otherwise, which could be present in the baby.
What type of results will I get?
- The report will tell you is one of the chromosomal alterations analyzed has been detected or not. In the case that one is detected an invasive test (amniocentesis or a chorionic villus biopsy) will be required to confirm the finding. Your doctor will tell you about these tests.
