A non-invasive & highly accurate screening test for fetal chromosomal abnormalities.

Non-Invasive Prenatal Screening Overview

A pregnant woman’s blood contains fragmented DNA particles of the placenta as well as her own cells. The DNA of the fetus and the placental cells (Cf-DNA) is usually identical. LifeCell’s Jananya, Non-Invasive Prenatal Screening (NIPS) analyses this Cell-Free Fetal DNA (Cf-DNA) & helps in early detection of certain genetic abnormalities without harming the fetus.
