Screening with VeriSeq NIPT includes dynamic fetal fraction measurement, which means lower failure rates, fewer redraws, trusted results for the clinician, and more answers delivered earlier to expecting families.2

Results in 26 hours when you choose VeriSeq NIPT Solution v23

From sample to result, all it takes is 1 technician and 2 hours of hands-on time to deliver results in about 1 day.

Rest assured that you can report timely prenatal screening results to your clinicians. The dedicated service and support team at Illumina is available for on-site assistance and phone and email communication when you need it the most.

Intended Use

The VeriSeq NIPT Solution v2 is an in vitro diagnostic test intended for use as a screening test for the detection of genome-wide fetal genetic anomalies from maternal peripheral whole blood specimens in pregnant women of at least 10 weeks gestation. VeriSeq NIPT Solution v2 uses whole-genome sequencing to detect partial duplications and deletions for all autosomes and aneuploidy status for all chromosomes. The test offers an option to request the reporting of sex chromosome aneuploidy (SCA). This product must not be used as the sole basis for diagnosis or other pregnancy management decisions.

Limitations of the Test

Noninvasive prenatal testing (NIPT) based on cell-free DNA analysis from maternal blood is a screening test; it is not diagnostic. False positive and false negative results do occur. Test results must not be used as the sole basis for diagnosis. Further confirmatory testing is necessary prior to making any irreversible pregnancy decision. A negative result does not eliminate the possibility that the pregnancy has a chromosomal or sub chromosomal abnormality. This test does not screen for polyploidy (eg, triploidy), birth defects such as open neural tube defects, single gene disorders, or other conditions, such as autism. There is a small possibility that the test results might not reflect the chromosomal status of the fetus, but may instead reflect chromosomal changes in the placenta (confined placental mosaicism, CPM) or the mother that may or may not have clinical significance.
