By offering NIPT as a secondary screening test, the UK hopes to reduce the number of invasive diagnostic tests and associated miscarriages.

Several academic and commercial groups are developing clinical cell-based noninvasive prenatal tests, which could eventually compete with current cell-free NIPTs.

ACMG said in a position statement that NIPS can replace conventional screening for Patau, Edwards, and Down syndrome in most women.

LabCorp plans to acquire all of Sequenom's outstanding stock for $2.40 per share.

Last month, the foundation, in partnership with the Washington State Department of Health, released seven educational videos about prenatal testing.

The firm is using Natera's Constellation software platform, which provides cloud-based access to bioinformatics algorithms for clinical genomics applications.

St. George's University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, which has been offering NIPT since last year, plans to double its capacity by the third quarter.
