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.
The five most common questions:
You can take the test when you are in the pregnancy weeks of 10+0 to 14 + 6.
Please contact one of our partner clinics and book a time to have a blood sample taken.
You will have the result of the test for chromosomal aberrations within 12 working days.
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.
The EVITA TEST can almost be equated with Chorionic Villus Sampling (CVS) which is normally offered in weeks 10-12, if there is a risk that the fetus is affected by a chromosomal aberration. CVS as well as the EVITA TEST detect whether there are chromosomal aberrations in the fetus such as Trisomy 21. The only difference is that CVS has a slightly better resolution in detecting even smaller changes in the fetal DNA because it is based on the analysis of a biopsy.
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.
The result of the test will be sent to the clinic where you have had your sample taken.
If a chromosomal aberration is detected, we advise you to contact your GP to arrange the further course.
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.
Yes, you can. Please contact one of our partner clinics or contact us at email@example.com, and we will provide you with information about the nearest clinic.
The price of the EVITA TEST COMPLETE is DKK 12,000.
