PrenatalSafe® is a non-invasive prenatal test that analyzes circulating cell-free fetal DNA isolated from a maternal blood sample.

It is also possible to detect the presence of 6 of the most common microdeletion syndromes:
Prevalence (at birth)
1/2.000 – 1/4.000
1/15.000 – 1/50.000
1/10.000 – 1/20.000
1p36 deletion Syndrome
1/5.000 – 1/10.000
PrenatalSafe® Plus is not indicated for dichorionic twin pregnancies.
