Veracity Non Invasive Prenatal Test - £ 350

Veracity Non Invasive Prenatal Test £350

VERACITY is a new generation targeted non-invasive prenatal test for the detection of genetic diseases such as trisomies, sex chromosome aneuploidies and microdeletions. Learn about our superior differentiated technology that provides unparalleled accuracy in detecting these conditions.

According to the  International Society for Prenatal Diagnosis (ISPD) and American College of Medical Genetics and Genomics (ACMG) support offering NIPT as a first-line screen., non-invasive prenatal testing (like ) is appropriate as a Primary Screening Test for pregnant women of all ages. Down Syndrome and certain other chromosomal conditions occur more frequently in babies born to mothers over 35 years old. Other conditions for which NIPT  screens – such as microdeletion syndromes – occur with the same frequency in babies, regardless of the mother’s age.

Frequently Asked Questions 

What are Down syndrome, Edwards syndrome and Patau syndrome?

Down syndrome, Edwards syndrome and Patau syndrome are genetic disorders caused by chromosomal trisomies. Down syndrome is caused by an extra copy of chromosome 21 whereas Edwards syndrome and Patau syndrome are caused by an extra copy of chromosome 18 and chromosome 13, respectively. Down syndrome is characterized by intellectual impairment and congenital abnormalities. Down syndrome occurs approximately in 1 in 700 pregnancies but is more frequent in pregnancies in women over 35. Edwards syndrome and Patau syndrome are less common occurring in 1 in 3000 and 1 in 10000 pregnancies, respectively. Edwards and Patau syndromes are characterized by severe congenital abnormalities and rarely survive past the first year of life.

What are sex chromosome aneuploidies?

Sex chromosome aneuploidies are genetic diseases caused by the presence or absence of a sex chromosome. The 23rd pair of chromosomes determines the sex of an individual. Women have two X chromosomes and men have one X and one Y chromosome.

There are four major sex chromosome aneuploidies:

  • Turner syndrome is characterized by the presence of a single X chromosome.
  • Triple X syndrome is characterized by the presence of three X chromosomes.
  • Klinefelter syndrome is characterized by the presence of two X chromosomes and one Y chromosome.
  • Jacob syndrome is characterized by the presence of one X chromosome and two Y chromosomes.

What are microdeletions?

Microdeletions are genetic conditions caused by the loss of a part of a chromosome. Microdeletions are characterized by congenital abnormalities and intellectual impairment. The severity of the symptoms varies depending on the size and location of the microdeletion. The most common microdeletion syndrome is DiGeorge syndrome which occurs approximately once in 1000 pregnancies. The prevalence of DiGeorge syndrome increases to 1 in 100 in pregnancies with major structural anomalies such as congenital heart disease.

What do about my Regular NHS 12 weeks scan and NT measurements scans?

If you are having NIPT Test or you have got negative or Low-risk result on the Non-Invasive Prenatal  Test you should still attend and not miss your regular 12 week NHS  scan and the NT measurements.

What if the sample fails?

Statistically there is a 3 to 4% failure rate that there is not enough cell free DNA in the blood sample to analyse. In this event a new sample will need to be taken again at no extra cost.

What if I have a high BMI?

The relative proportion of cell-free fetal DNA is reduced in women with a high BMI as they have more of their own cell-free DNA circulating in their blood. This may increase the chance of getting an inconclusive result.
