NIPT in London (Non-invasive Prenatal testing)

At Grosvenor Gardens Healthcare, located in the prestigious districts of Belgravia and Dulwich, London, we offer state-of-the-art non-invasive prenatal testing (NIPT) to expectant mothers. Our NIPT services, including the Panorama and Illumina tests, are designed to provide early and accurate insights into your baby’s health, ensuring peace of mind throughout your pregnancy.

What is NIPT?

Non-invasive prenatal testing (NIPT) is a cutting-edge screening method that analyses small fragments of fetal DNA circulating in a pregnant woman’s blood. This test is primarily used to assess the risk of certain genetic conditions, such as Down syndrome (trisomy 21), trisomy 18, and trisomy 13, without posing any risk to the baby.

NIPT Options at Grosvenor Gardens Healthcare

Panorama Test The Panorama test is a highly accurate NIPT option that can be performed as early as nine weeks into pregnancy. It screens for various genetic conditions and can also provide information on the baby’s gender and the risk of twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome (TTTS) in twin pregnancies.

Illumina Test The Illumina range of NIPT tests offers comprehensive screening for chromosomal abnormalities along with additional options for evaluating other genetic disorders. Known for its high accuracy, the Illumina test suite uses advanced sequencing technology to ensure reliable results.
