In June 2017, the Victorian Clinical Genetics Services became the first to include the assessment of all 24 chromosomes (chromosomes 1-22 + X and Y) in its non-invasive prenatal testing (NIPT) service. Most NIPT services identify pregnancies at increased chance of the common chromosome conditions such as Down syndrome, however percept™ now gives women and couples access to additional information about the health of their pregnancy.
