NIPT Extended

Non-Invasive Prenatal Test (NIPT)
from the 11th week of pregnancy


  • Completely risk-free examination for chromosomal abnormalities (trisomy 13, 18 and 21) at the earliest possible point in time during pregnancy
  • Additional testing for sex chromosomes (e.g. Turner syndrome) and microdeletions
Nicht Invasiver Pränatal-Test (NIPT)

The Non-Invasive Prenatal Test (NIPT) requires only a simple blood test. This makes it a completely risk-free alternative to chorionic villus sampling as well as amniocentesis for both mother and child.

NIPT involves examining the mother’s blood, which also contains the baby’s DNA. With an analysis of these fragments of the foetal genome, the risk of a genetic change in the unborn child is determined. The results provide information with a high reliability of more than 99 percent as to whether Down syndrome (trisomy 21) is present. The detection rate is 92 percent for trisomy 13 (Pätau syndrome), and 96 percent for trisomy 18 (Edwards syndrome). The high precision of the NIPT significantly reduces the likelihood that further investigation by invasive procedures will be recommended due to a false positive result. The false positive rate is less than 0.1 percent.

NIPT Extended examines for trisomies 21, 18, 13, triploidy, sex chromosome disorders (Turner, Klinefelter, double-Y, triplo-X) and five microdeletions (22q11, 1p36, Cri-du-Chat, Angelman, Prader-Willi). False positive rates and detection rates vary depending on the disease.

The NIPT is recommended in combination with the first trimester ultrasound examination including preeclampsia screening. With this early screening examination, up to 65 percent of malformations that do not have a direct genetic cause can be discovered or ruled out. These cannot be detected with the NIPT.

The non-invasive prenatal test is also offered as a 2-part examination. It can be performed from the 11th week of pregnancy and usually means an early all-clear for parents. If the NIPT takes place early (11th week), we recommend performing the first trimester ultrasound including preeclampsia screening in the 12th-14th week of pregnancy.

  • The findings are available approximately 14 working days after the examination.
