Yenetics is the first non-invasive prenatal test (NIPT) based on the application of the Next Generation Sequencing (NGS), a high-sensitivity technology capable of detecting genomic mutations. The sequencing of fetal DNA in the maternal plasma (cffDNA) via NGS coupled to a pipeline of integrated analysis based on ad-hoc algorithms for genetic analysis, comparison with genetic variants databases and the statistical analysis of data, represent an innovative process compared to prenatal tests currently available.
