Population Screening Act: NIPT for multiple pregnancies

The NIPT consortium has applied for a permit to offer the non-invasive prenatal test (NIPT) to women with multiple pregnancies as part of two ongoing studies. In these studies, pregnant women can opt for NIPT as prenatal screening test for the detection of trisomies 21, 13 and 18.  The Health Council advises the State Secretary for Health Welfare and Sport to grant the permit.
