Fetal DNA is a genetic material secreted by the placenta and circulates in the mother’s blood during pregnancy. Fetal DNA usually reflects the genetic makeup of the developing baby, the fetus. Fetal DNA Screening, also called noninvasive prenatal screening (NIPS), is based on examining possible defects in Fetal DNA after it has been separated from the mother’s blood. It is a high-capacity, high-accuracy “screening” test performed without harming the baby.
