NIPD ZPlus Tests at the Best Prices in HK

NIPD Zplus is a simple blood test which detects Down syndrome and other genetic syndromes without any risk to the fetus or mother.

This test takes advantage of the fact that DNA from the baby circulates in the mother’s bloodstream. The test consists of collecting 10ml blood sample from the pregnant woman at 10 gestational week. From this blood sample, DNA from the baby is analyzed in order to examine the baby’s chromosomes - Trisomy 21, Trisomy 18, Trisomy 13, Trisomy 9, Trisomy 16, Trisomy 22, Sex Chromosomal Aneuploidies and 8 Deletion/ Duplication Syndrome (Cri Du Chat Syndrome, 1p36 Deletion Syndrome, 2q33.1 Deletion Syndrome, DiGeorge Syndrome II, 16p12.2 Deletion Syndrome, Jacobsen Syndrome, Van Der Woude Syndrome, Angelman Syndrome and Parder-Willi Syndrome) also included. Now the NIPD Zplus test is also applicable for twins pregnancies.

The NIPD ZPlus test is used to screen for chromosomal aneuploidies, which refers to the existence of an abnormal number of chromosomes in a cell. It is a non-invasive prenatal test that can be used as early as week 10 of pregnancy, and is much more accurate than traditional screening methods. Choosing the NIPD ZPlus test means that women do not have to undergo invasive diagnostic procedures. The NIPD ZPlus is a revolutionary new test providing results that far surpasses those offered by other, similar tests such as the t21 and Nifty tests. At Zentrogene, we are proudly CFPA (China Food and Drug Administration) certified.

About the Conditions :

A trisomy is a term for a genetic condition in which there are three chromosomes instead of the usual pair.

Trisomy 21 / Down Syndrome:
Trisomy 21, more commonly known as Down Syndrome, is a condition caused by an extra copy of chromosome 21. Unfortunately, miscarriage occurs in about 30% of pregnancies with Down Syndrome. Those children born with Down Syndrome will need extra medical care depending on the child’s specific health problems. Most children with Down Syndrome have intellectual disabilities that range from mild to moderate. Early intervention has proven to be essential in enabling individuals with Down Syndrome to lead healthy and productive lives. For more information or support, please see our resources page.
Trisomy 18 / Edward Syndrome:
Trisomy 18, or Edwards Syndrome, is caused when a baby has three copies of chromosome 18, instead of two. Unfortunately, pregnancies with Edwards Syndrome are at high risk of miscarriage and most babies born with Edwards Syndrome die within the first few weeks of life while less than 10% live beyond one year. Infants with Edwards Syndrome have severe intellectual disabilities and birth defects typically involving the heart, brain, and kidneys, and external abnormalities such as cleft lip/palate, small head, club feet, underdeveloped digits, and small jaw.
Trisomy 13 / Patau Syndrome:
Trisomy 13, or Patau Syndrome, is caused when a baby has three copies of chromosome 13, instead of two. Unfortunately, pregnancies diagnosed with Patau Syndrome are at high risk for miscarriage or stillbirth, and most babies born with Patau Syndrome will not survive beyond the first weeks of life. Babies with Patau Syndrome may have heart defects, brain or spinal cord problems, extra fingers and/or toes, an opening in the lip (cleft lip) with or without an opening in the roof of the mouth (cleft palate), and weak muscle tone. Many babies have birth defects of other organs as well.
