  • 219 women in Western Australia were surveyed regarding the use of NIPT to detect multiple different single gene and chromosome conditions.
  • Most women (96%) supported expanded NIPT for single gene and chromosome conditions as long as the test does not pose any risk to the pregnancy and can provide relevant medical information about the fetus. Most women (80%) indicated that expanded NIPT should be available at any stage during pregnancy and 68% indicated that the cost of the test would influence their participation in testing.
