Non Invasive Prenatal Screening Tests ( NIPS)

Cell-free DNA fragments (cfDNA) are short fragments of DNA which can be found circulating in the blood. During pregnancy, cfDNA fragments originating from both the mother and fetus are present in maternal blood circulation. Cell-free fetal DNA (cff DNA) is present only as a minority component of the total cfDNA in maternal plasma, which poses a significant technical challenge for some NIPT detection methods.
