Nace Screening

NACE is a non-invasive prenatal test. This means that it is completely safe for you and your baby: a small blood sample, just like in any other routine blood analysis, is sufficient to perform the test.

What does NACE detect?

NACE detects abnormalities in chromosomes 21, 18, 13 and the most common anomalies in the sex chromosomes (X and Y).

NACE 24 Extended analyses all 24 chromosomes and identifies microdeletions associated with 6 major genetic syndromes.
