Why take this test?
Our highly accurate Vanadis NIPT test is a simple blood test with no risk to mother or baby. It can be taken by expectant mothers 10 weeks into pregnancy, meaning you can get results sooner than the standard NHS serum test.
Do I need to fast?
Fasting is not necessary for this test. Please stay hydrated for the appointment and avoid consuming tea, coffee or caffeinated drinks before the test, as these may make the blood draw more difficult.
No hidden costs
Everything from the at home blood draw and tracked shipment of samples to the lab, through to delivery of the results and personlized medical report by a GMC-registered doctor is included in the price.
This test is performed as an at home blood draw by a trained health professional and the samples are analysed by an UKAS accredited NHS laboratory.
