Cell-Free Fetal DNA Testing

Cell-Free Fetal DNA Testing is especially used for pregnant women to assess the risk of your developing baby having certain chromosome disorders.

The result can be positive or negative.

A negative cffDNA test result means that it is very unlikely that the baby has trisomy 13, 18, or 21, but there may be some exceptions.

A positive cffDNA result shows that the fetus is at an increased risk of having the identified abnormality. However, the test is not diagnostic.

Questions on interpreting the results of a cffDNA are usually best answered by someone experienced in genetic counseling.
