Summary of the Talk

Non-invasive prenatal testing (NIPT) is one of the best methods of screening for aneuploidies in the fetus, prenatally. The technique is know to be highly reliable and accurate in aneuploidy detection. It has also seen increased adoption in India because of better understanding and increased awareness about the availability of the test.

This webinar will focus on the clinical utility of NIPT and look at some of recent discussion points including expanded screening. As an early laboratory adopter and with an experience of processing thousands of samples across platforms, best practices for a successful test will be discussed.
