Get answer to your questions about EVITA TEST

Here you can find answers to the most common questions in relation to EVITA TEST COMPLETE. If you do not find the answer to your specific question, do not hesitate to reach out to us. Find our contact information below.

When during my pregnancy can I have the test taken?

You can take the test when you are in the pregnancy weeks of 10+0 to 14 + 6.

Where can the test be carried out?

Please contact one of our partner clinics and book a time to have a blood sample taken.

How long does it take to get the result of the COMPLETE test?

You will have the result of the test for chromosomal aberrations within 12 working days.

How does the EVITA TEST COMPLETE differ from other conventional NIPT tests?

The difference between the conventional NIPT test, also referred to as cell-free NIPT (cfNIPT), and EVITA TEST COMPLETE is that cfNIPT analyses fragments of fetal DNA circulating in maternal blood. These fetal DNA fragments are contaminated with maternal DNA, hence limiting the resolution of analysis. EVITA TEST COMPLETE uses a technology to isolate fetal cells from maternal blood and analyse pure fetal DNA. Hence, EVITA TEST COMPLETE has the ability to detect smaller changes in the fetal DNA.

Can EVITA TEST COMPLETE be equated with the prenatal diagnostic test offered in pregnancy week 10?

EVITA TEST COMPLETE is a screening test that examines for chromosomal abnormalities in the form of aneuploidies in the fetus such as Trisomy 21 (Down syndrome), and for copy number variations (microdeletions and microduplications). If chromosomal abnormalities are detected by an EVITA TEST COMPLETE, an invasive diagnostic test such as Chorionic Villus Sampling (CVS) is always recommended to verify the finding.

A CVS is a diagnostic analysis and is typically offered in pregnancy weeks 10-12, if there is a risk that the fetus has chromosomal aneuploidies. The CVS has an even better resolution, as it is based on the analysis of tissue biopsy, and thus it is possible to find even smaller copy number variations in the fetus.

Can I get information about the sex of my child, if I have the COMPLETE test?

Yes, you can get information about the sex of your child. The information can be provided to you when you are in 12th pregnancy week or more. Please inform the staff at our partner clinic about your request.

The first trimester screening based on my age, the maternal serum blood test (double test) as well as fetal nuchal translucency have shown that I am in the low risk. Can I still benefit from the EVITA TEST COMPLETE?

Yes, the first trimester screening is performed to assess the risk of the most common trisomies, especially Trisomy 21 (Down syndrome). Small changes of the DNA may not be detected in these screenings.
EVITA TEST COMPLETE, which analyses pure fetal DNA, has the necessary technology to detect small changes in the DNA. All relevant findings in the analyses of the fetal DNA will be informed to you.

How do I get the result of the test?

The result of the test will be sent to the clinic where you have had your sample taken.

What do I do if a fetal chromosomal aberration is detected?

If a chromosomal aberration is detected, we advise you to contact your GP to arrange the further course.

How big is the risk that the EVITA TEST COMPLETE detects an aberration which cannot be explained?

All results are being analysed by clinical geneticists with many years’ experience within genetic results from fetal cells. All relevant findings of the analysis of the fetal DNA will be communicated to you.

I don’t live in Denmark. Can I still have an EVITA TEST COMPLETE carried out?

Yes, you can. Please contact one of our partner clinics or contact us at contact@evitatest.com, and we will provide you with information about the nearest clinic.

How much does an EVITA TEST COMPLETE cost?

The price of the EVITA TEST COMPLETE is DKK 12,000.
