Lower Rates of Miscarriages and Safer to Use, Makes NIPT a Preferred Choice
Among all the properties of non-invasive prenatal testing, the significant ones such as safety, precision, and its non-invasive nature are the major contributing factor for its demand in the global market. It is one of the most preferred techniques among the medical professionals and expecting mothers as it allegedly reduces the risk of miscarriages and safely detects the chromosomal abnormalities along with the sex determination of the fetus. Moreover, owing to high occurrence of babies born with down syndrome, the demand for NIPT rises in the market. Another fueling factor for the increase in the demand for non-invasive prenatal testing is that as per the research conducted, the conventional therapies and diagnostic tests such as amniocentesis, and chorionic villus sampling (CVS) include higher possibilities of miscarriages. Besides, there has been a noticeable shift towards conceiving babies at older age and thus to avoid the risk of miscarriages and abnormalities, NIPT is preferred more over other tests due to its significant properties.
