QUIROGA DE MICHELENA, María Isabel  and  DIAZ KUAN, Alicia. Prenatal diagnosis of chromosome abnormalities: Noninvasive prenatal testing. Rev. peru. ginecol. obstet. [online]. 2016, vol.62, n.3, pp.265-268. ISSN 2304-5132.

Non-invasive prenatal test (NIPT) is a screening method that identifies pregnant women with a high aneuploidy risk, specifically for trisomy 21, 18, 13, and chromosome X anomalies. NIPT analyzes free fetal DNA found in maternal blood. In this review, we describe the benefits, disadvantages and study indications.

Keywords : NIPT.
