Panorama Non-Invasive Pre-Natal Test (NIPT)

The Panorama non-invasive prenatal test ( NIPT ) costs £450.00 for the standard base test and £650.00 if you choose extended microdeletion panel also ( inc ultrasound scan )

The standard base test includes :

  • Trisomy 21 ( Down Syndrome ), Trisomy 18 ( Edwards Syndrome ), Trisomy 13 (Patau Syndrome)
  • Monosomy X – Also called Turners syndrome, a condition where a female is missing an X chromosome, and as a result, may have heart, endocrine, and learning problems
  • DiGeorge syndrome (22q11.2 deletion syndrome) – A condition caused by a small missing piece (‘deletion’) of chromosome 22, which can result in heart, kidney, learning, and growth problems
  • Sex Chromosome Aneuploidy – It is useful to detect the difference in the number of X and Y chromosome. This can result in certain learning and/or behavioural challenges in addition to other health issues.
  • Fetal sex – Knowing whether your baby is male or female (also available with twins) can help you bond with the baby and prepare for either a boy or a girl.

The base NIPT test can be used in singleton, twin, IVF, egg-donor pregnancies and surrogate pregnancies.

All twin pregnancies can be screened for gender of both twins and zygosity (whether identical on non-identical)

Non-Identical twins can be screened for Trisomy 21/18 and 13 only.

The extended microdeletion panel will include the above PLUS:

  • 1p36 deletion syndrome
  • Prader Willi syndrome
  • Angelman syndrome
  • Cri-du-chat syndrome

Please note that for Twin/Donor/Surrogacy pregnancies the extended Panorama panel/microdeletions cannot be performed.

Panorama test results – 10 days from arriving at the laboratory in the United States.

Delays can occur due to bank holidays, and sample failure.

There is a 1.5% chance that we might not get a result and a repeat sample will be required. This can be due to lack of fetal DNA or laboratory failure.

Two samples are sent to the laboratory and both samples are analysed to obtain as much cfDNA to be tested simultaneously.  If both samples fail, we offer a repeat test at no extra cost.

Panorama NIPTs performed at MUMS on Saturdays will not leave for couriering to the United States laboratory until the following Monday.

Additional lab work can delay the test result.
