We take 10 ml blood from pregnant mother which is safe and easy for both mother and baby.
Then, we deliver blood sample to Singapore iGene lab for NIPT result which takes 1 to 2 weeks for processing.

Trisomy defects can be detected up to twin pregnancy.
However, Sex chromosomal and deletion defects can be detected only with single pregnancy.
Therefore, we suggest to do basic panel package with twin pregant mothers.
This NIPT test is for early preparation and management for parents with their coming baby to brace their minds and souls for the best as in Myanmar, termination of pregnancy is ilegal.
