Peace of mind during your pregnancy

EVITA TEST COMPLETE is the only risk free Non-Invasive-Prenatal-Test (NIPT) that in detail examines all the fetal chromosomes in whole fetal cells. The test can be taken during pregnancy from week 10+0 up to 14+6 days. As for now EVITA TEST is only available in Denmark. As for now EVITA TEST is only available in Denmark.

Accuracy and confidence with EVITA TEST COMPLETE

  • Complete fetal DNA screening based on whole and pure fetal cells.
  • Screening for abnormalities in all chromosomes: both in number of chromosomes and for disease causing variations within all chromosomes.
  • Test accuracy unaffected by maternal DNA, BMI and malignancies – which challenges traditional NIPT tests based on fragments of circulating DNA.
  • Only available NIPT test in the private market where all steps in the process from blood test to genetic reporting takes place within Denmark.
  • Provides accurate gender identification.

How EVITA TEST COMPLETE works

Want to book a test? Simply contact one of our partner clinics.

Step-by-step guide to the EVITA TEST COMPLETE

1. Order a blood test

Contact your preferred clinic to book an appointment for a blood test. This can be done anywhere from week 10+0 days until week 14+6 days of pregnancy.

2. A blood sample is taken and analyzed

The blood sampling will be completed at the clinic. The blood sample is then processed and analyzed by ARCEDI, and the results evaluated by an experienced clinical geneticist.

3. Your results

Your test results will be ready within 12 working days, from the date of the test.

Receiving your test results

A) Most EVITA TEST COMPLETE results are normal and you receive the test results by phone from the clinic. A short report is also mailed to you.
B) In the rare event that the results indicate an abnormality in the fetal DNA, you will be called by the clinic, who will guide you through the findings and talk you through the next steps.

Pricing

Our partner clinics will be happy to inform about pricing when you call to book your test appointment. See the list of clinics below.

Want to know more about NIPT?

EVITA TEST COMPLETE is a cell-based Non-Invasive Prenatal Test. There are several variations of the test called cell-free Non-Invasive Prenatal Test which are available on the market today, but EVITA TEST COMPLETE is the only one that:

  • Is based on the analysis of whole and pure fetal cells with the complete fetal genome
  • Examines all fetal chromosomes for genetic defects and disease causing deviations down to 5 million DNA base pairs
  • Can be used by all pregnant women regardless of their own genetics or BMI.

The differences between the various prenatal test types can be seen below.

The combination of complete insight into possible chromosomal abnormalities along with the fact that the test is completely risk-free makes EVITA TEST COMPLETE the safest choice.

EVITA TEST COMPLETE, has been developed together with researchers from Aarhus University Hospital. Between 2018 and 2023 a clinical validation study was conducted in the Central Region on 344 pregnancies.

The results are published in the journal; Prenatal Diagnosis: How does cell-based NIPT perform against chorionic villus sampling and cell-free NIPT in detecting trisomies and copy number variations? A clinical study from Denmark.

Based on this published data, sensitivity and specificity have been calculated for cbNIPT, EVITA TEST COMPLETE:

  • Sensitivity is a measure of how many with abnormal genetics are correctly identified as abnormal in the test
  • Specificity is a measure of how many with normal genetics are correctly identified as normal in the test.

EVITA TEST COMPLETE screens all fetal chromosomes for the gain or loss of complete chromosome (eg. Downs syndrome is caused by an extra copy of chromosome 21) and deletion and duplication syndromes, also called copy number variations (CNVs), where parts of a chromosome are duplicated or deleted. Fortunately, deletion and duplication syndromes are rare, but can occur anywhere within the different chromosomes. Some deletions and/or duplications are more frequent and have a syndrome named after them, while others are rarer and often de novo  but can still be serious.

For EVITA TEST COMPLETE, any pathogenic (disease causing) copy number variation greater than 5 million DNA base pairs in size will be reported. This could, for example, be:

Number errors (loss or increase of an entire chromosome)
All aneuploidies on the autosomal chromosomes – i.e. chromosomes 1-22.

 

For example:

  • Trisomy 21 – Downs syndrome
  • Trisomy 18 – Edwards syndrome
  • Trisomy 13 – Pataus syndrome

Number errors of the sex chromosomes

  • Turner’s syndrome
  • XXY – Klinefelters syndrome
  • XYY syndrome

Deletions/duplications* (loss or increase of subsets of a chromosome)

  • Prader Willi syndrome,
  • Angelman syndrome,
  • Cat-eye Syndrome,
  • 1p36 microdeletion syndrome
  • Cat Cry Syndrome

 

* These are examples of deletions or duplications over 5 million DNA base pairs in size, but this is not a complete list of deletions/duplications that EVITA TEST COMPLETE can detect. Copy number variations can occur anywhere on the various chromosomes, and EVITA TEST COMPLETE will report any disease-causing copy number variations over 5 million DNA base pairs in size.

EVITA TEST COMPLETE is not yet a diagnostic test, it is a screening test like the other NIPT tests. Thus, a positive test finding of an anomaly needs to be confirmed with a followup invasive diagnostic test. A positive screening result means that a fetus has a high risk of having a specific genetic chromosomal abnormality. Consequently, any medical decisions regarding the screening test results should only be taken after a discussion with a medical doctor or specialist health care professional.

In a small number of maternal blood samples (5%), not enough fetal cells can be found to carry out the chromosome examination. In this case, a new blood test (within the gestational age of 10+0 -14+6) is offered. After this point, the number of samples where a chromosome examination of the fetus cannot be completed drops to 2%. If still unsuccessful at this point in time a refund is provided.

Development work is ongoing for clinical validation of EVITA TEST COMPLETE for:

  • Deletions/duplications below 5 million DNA base pairs in size
  • Twin pregnancies
  • Monogenic diseases (mutation in a single gene, e.g. cystic fibrosis)
  • Mosaicism (a small fraction of cells in the placenta or fetus have a chromosomal abnormality)

 

EVITA TEST COMPLETE cannot be used to test for:

  • Polyploidy (more than two of each kind of chromosomes)
  • Balanced translocations (exchange of chromosomal material between two different chromosomes, but the total amount of the chromosomes is unchanged
  • Uniparental disomy (UPD) (two copies of a chromosome are inherited from only one parent)
