TriScreen - Non-Invasive Prenatal Testing (NIPT)

You have been referred by your doctor for the TriScreen non-invasive prenatal genetic test (NIPT). Each patient that has a genetic test done, should undergo genetic counselling.

Genetic counselling is a medical service that provides you with information about your genetic test, to help you understand the impact of a genetic condition on your life, and assist you with making informed personal and medical decisions.

This short video and quiz will form part of your counselling. Once you have completed watching the video and answering the questions, a communication will be sent to your doctor that you have received information on NIPT.

Should you have any further questions on NIPT, please call Next Biosciences on 011 697 2905.
