Non invasive prenatal tests

NIPT (Non Invasive Prenatal Test) You may want the extra reassurance and full analysis of your babies health status. You may be a carrier for a genetic condition or your partner may be. Possibly you have a child already who has been born with a genetic disorder. Whatever the reason for your curiosity at Babyface our highly trained and qualified staff can help you through the process from choosing which test is right for you to booking your appointment and then receiving your results. A scan will be included with your blood test, in the ultrasound we will be looking at the general health of your baby, and to confirm gestation. Our phlebotomist will then draw blood from your arm, you may lay down or sit comfortably for this. After your scan and blood test you will wait to receive your results within 7-10 days. Following a positive result you can have access to genetic counselling and be able to choose your next steps with the information given to you.

NIPT – £425

Your baby will have 23 pairs of chromosomes, this test will look at 3 of those, trisomy 13 (Patau Syndrome), 18 (Edwards Syndrome) and 21(Downs Syndrome). As well as the sex chromosomes X AND Y. This test can be performed around 10 weeks gestation and there is an option to choose to know the gender although this is an option and not essential.

NIPT + (Prenatalsafe plus) – £950

Your baby will have 23 pairs of chromosomes, this test will look at 5 of those plus 6 micro-deletions, trisomy 13(Patau Syndrome), 18 (Edwards Syndrome) and 21(Downs Syndrome). As well as the sex chromosomes X AND Y, chromosome 9 and 16 plus 6 most common micro deletions. This test can be performed around 10 weeks gestation and there is an option to choose to know the gender although this is an option and not essential.

NIPT ++ (PrenatalSafe KARYO)  – £1100

Your baby will have 23 pairs of chromosomes, this test will look at ALL 23 Pairs, trisomy 13 (Patau Syndrome), 18 (Edwards Syndrome) and 21(Downs Syndrome) and all other pairs of chromosomes to look for structural chromosome aberrations causing disorders. This test can be performed around 10 weeks gestation and there is an option to choose to know the gender although this is an option and not essential.

NIPT ++ (PrenatalSafe KARYO Plus)  – £1200

Your baby will have 23 pairs of chromosomes, this test will look at ALL 23 Pairs PLUS the 9 most common micro-deletions, trisomy 13(Patau Syndrome), 18 (Edwards Syndrome) and 21(Downs Syndrome) and all other pairs of chromosomes and 9 micro deletions to look for structural chromosome aberrations causing disorders. This test can be performed around 10 weeks gestation and there is an option to choose to know the gender although this is an option and not essential.

GeneSafe Inherited  – £850

Our Genesafe Test looks for inherited recessive genetic disorders. A non-invasive prenatal test that screens multiple genes for mutations causing severe genetic disorders in the fetus.

– Cystic Fibrosis
– Thalassemia-Beta
-Sickle cell anaemia
-Deafness autosomal recessive type 1A
-Deafness autosomal recessive type 1B

It allows a more complete picture of the risk of a pregnancy being affected by a genetic disorder.

All pregnant women regardless of age are at equal risk for the genetic conditions screened by GeneSafe™ de novo. Although the occurrence of each disorder is relatively rare, the cumulative prevalence of these conditions (~1 in 600) is similar to that of Down Syndrome*

Genesafe De Novo (Not Inherited)  – £850

A non-invasive prenatal test that screens multiple genes for mutations causing severe genetic disorders in the fetus. It allows a more complete picture of the risk of a pregnancy being affected by a genetic disorder.

This test studies 25 genes to screen for 44 severe genetic disorders (from a gene mutation that is not inherited)
