Research output: Contribution to journalLetterResearchpeer-review

Non-invasive prenatal testing (NIPT) using cell-free fetal DNA from the peripheral blood of the pregnant woman has become a possibility within recent years, but is not yet implemented in Denmark. NIPT has proven to be very efficient in the screening for especially trisomi 21. This article summarizes the basics behinds the most used NIPT techniques and describes which genetic conditions this method may detect. Finally, the future aspects of implementing NIPT in the prenatal screening programme in Denmark are discussed.
