Noninvasive prenatal testing or noninvasive prenatal screening is a medical procedure that helps in detecting the risks of genetic abnormalities in the fetus. This test involves the collection of a blood sample from the mother to analyze the fragments of DNA and cell-free DNA (cfDNA) from the placenta.

If you're pregnant and worried about the genetic abnormalities and complications of the fetus then you can undertake a Non-invasive Prenatal Testing in Siliguri. This is a painless test that doesn't harm the fetus in any way and assists in the early detection of genetic defects. Dr. Vinayak Das is a well-known name in the field of gynecology and fetal medicine who suggests that parents must go for such testing to get a clear idea about the chromosomal abnormalities.

When Non-Invasive Prenatal Testing Is Done?

The most interesting part of noninvasive prenatal testing is that it reveals that the mother's blood contains the mix of DNA that comes from her cell and the cells present in the placenta. This test can be done after the 10th week of pregnancy till delivery of the baby.

It is mostly recommended by doctors when the mother already has a child with chromosomal abnormalities. Women with high-risk pregnancies and advanced maternal age must also undergo a NIPT test in Siliguri for early screening for any potential problem. Additionally, routine prenatal ultrasound can also direct an abnormality in the fetus when genetic screening is recommended.

The methods of non-invasive testing are implemented to maintain accuracy while detecting the disorders in the fetus. The basis of the testing is also concerned with the deleted and duplicated sections of the chromosome to identify the genetic disorder that proves to be the reason for changes in the single genes.

Chromosomal Conditions Detected In Non Invasive Prenatal Testing

  • Trisomy 13 or Patau Syndrome
  • Down Syndrome
  • Trisomy 18 or Edwards Syndrome
  • Missing or Extra Copy of Chromosome (Aneuploidy)
  • Extra or Missing Copy of X and Y Chromosomes (Sex Chromosomes)
  • Jacobsen syndrome
  • Prader-Willi Syndrome
  • Defects in Chromosomal Structure

The technological advancement and improvement in this genetic testing method have become popular among people because it now can find out more genetic conditions.

The average cost of a Non-invasive Prenatal Test in Siliguri may range from Rs. 10,000 to Rs. 15,000. After the collection of the sample, the reports will be provided to you within 10-12 days.

If the result of the Non-invasive Prenatal Test states that the fetus has some issues with trisomy 18, 21, or 13 then it is considered as high risk. These issues indicate that the baby has a higher chance of developing chromosomal differences and genetic disorders.
