Vanadis® NIPT system: Proof of principle data for trisomy screening

Herein we describe a simple microplate-based technology, which is presently in development, to precisely quantify cell-free DNA molecules. Our technology will enable cost-effective and high-throughput prenatal screening by eliminating the need for microfluidics, microarrays and DNA sequencing.


Vanadis® NIPT: An Automated System for High-Precision Prenatal screening

Non-invasive prenatal testing (NIPT), which is based on the analysis of placental cell-free DNA (cfDNA) circulating in maternal blood, provides a highly accurate screening option and reduces the need for invasive testing.
