What is NACE?
- NACE is a non-invasive prenatal screening test for the most frequent chromosomal abnormalities. The test is non-invasive, meaning that there is no risk to the fetus.
- A simple blood draw from the mother allows free fetal DNA circulating in the maternal bloodstream to be detected via next-generation sequencing (NGS) technology and our proprietary bioinformatic analysis tool.
What options are available?
- NACE: Detects abnormalities in chromosomes 21, 18, 13 and the most common anomalies in the sex chromosomes (X and Y).
- NACE 24: Analyzes the full set of chromosomes at the resolution of a standard karyotype. It identifies deletions and duplications that are associated with clinically relevant genetic syndromes.
