Detects up to 25% more clinically relevant chromosomal information than other leading NIPTs. Provides karyotype-level insight, information about deletions or duplications of chromosome material 7 Mb or larger, as well as analysis of seven clinically relevant microdeletion regions less than 7 Mb in size.
