NIPT Classic

Exact, non-invasive prenatal test for trisomy 21, 18 and 13

What is Eluthia’s NIPT Classic?

Our NIPT Classic, the VANADIS® Test, screens for the three most common innate trisomies: Down syndrom, Edwards syndrom und Patau syndrome which are caused by trisomies of the chromosomes 21, 18 and 13 respectively. The accuracy is above 99%.

Optionally, your baby’s gender can be detected at no additional charge. VANADIS® Test is non-invasive and therefore without risk for you or your baby.

How accurate is the NIPT Classic?

Studies confirm the high accuracy of the VANADIS® Test:

Trisomy 21 Trisomy 18 Trisomy 13

Detection rate

> 99,65 %

> 92,52 %

> 96,3 %

False positive rate

0,12 %

0,32 %

0,09 %

No call rate
0,68 %

According to PerkinElmer based on clinical data on more than 8,000 pregnancies.

Sometimes NIPTs have to be repeated for different reasons. In this case a second blood draw is required. If a test still cannot generate a result it is called no-call. VANADIS® Test has an extremely low no-call rate of 0.68%. This means that in some of these cases VANADIS® Test can detect trisomies that would be overlooked by other NIPTs.

Where is the test performed?

Our NIPT Classic (VANADIS®) is performed by our experienced Eluthia Team in our laboratory in Giessen, Germany.

When can you expect the results?

The test results are usually available within 5 days.

What are possible results?

If the result shows a low risk: the probability for your child to be affected by one of the screened syndromes is very low. For example: The risk for trisomy 21 is 1:8000. This means that the probability that your child has Down syndrome is 1:8000 if the result was low risk.

If the result shows a high risk: the probability of your child being affected by one of the screened syndromes is high.

However, as screening tests are not 100 % accurate your doctor will consult you about the further course of action. This may include diagnostic tests (such as amniocentesis or CVS) in order to confirm a high-risk result.

No result: In very rare cases a test will be unable to generate a result. In these cases, please talk to your doctor about the further cause of action.
