    There are few of NIPT test that is offered by doctors in Singapore like Verifi, Panorama and Harmony. It is important to note that they are not screening test and not diagnostics. The only diagnostic test available in the market is CVS or amniocentesis and both these testes are invasive which carry some risk in miscarriages. NIPT can be conducted as early as 10 weeks but it also has a certain level of false negative result. It does not test the baby itself but the chromosomes of the placenta.
