NIPT (non-invasive prenatal testing)

Test for chromosomal abnormalities such as trisomies in the fetus by assaying fetal cfDNA in the mother's blood. Because the test assays chromosomes it can also detect fetal gender. 

NIPT does not carry the increased risk of miscarriage associated with CVS or amniocentesis.
