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.

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.
