The AURORA test is a non-invasive and risk-free prenatal test performed on the mother’s blood. The test can be performed starting from the 10th week of pregnancy and is used to detect in the fetus:
- the most frequent aneuploidies affecting autosomal chromosome (e.g. Down syndrome and other trisomies) and sexual chromosomes
- the main microdeletions (loss of a chromosome region);
- the baby’s sex (at the discretion of the parents).
