What does NICC® screen for?

The risk of having a child with chromosomal abnormalities, such as Down Syndrome (Trisomy 21), Edwards Syndrome (Trisomy 18) and Patau Syndrome (Trisomy 13) increases with maternal age. Diagnostic tests for trisomy detection such as amniocentesis and chorionic villus sampling (CVS) are invasive and impose a risk of miscarriage to the pregnancy. NICC® is a highly accurate screening test that provides a stronger risk indication than other traditional screening procedures with a sensitivity rate of >99.9% for Down Syndrome, Edwards Syndrome and Patau Syndrome. NICC® significantly reduces the number of women undergoing unnecessary invasive diagnostic procedures.

How does it work?

During pregnancy, cell-free fetal DNA (cffDNA) is released from placenta into the mother’s blood vessel.

Using only 10 ml of the mother’s blood, NICC® detects the baby’s DNA and measures the risk of chromosomal abnormalities using Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS) method.
