Noninvasive Prenatal Testing (NIPT) is a new technology that allows women to have prenatal testing for some genetic and chromosomal conditions from a simple blood test.
We have produced a series of e-learning sessions for different types of health professionals involved with offering, administering and delivering the results of NIPT. Find out more about NIPT.
What is the RAPID project?
RAPID (Reliable Accurate Prenatal non-Invasive Diagnosis) is a 5 year UK national programme funded by the National Institute for Health Research. The aim of the research programme is to improve the quality of NHS prenatal diagnostic services by evaluating early non-invasive prenatal diagnosis. You can find out more about the project on the about us page.
