BGISEQ-500 NIFTY® Kits Receive CE mark

December 12, 2017 BGI’s NIFTY® test kit for fetal chromosome aneuploidy has obtained EU Medical Device CE Certification issued by the BSI (British Standards Institution). This adds to the existing CE certifications already achieved for the BGISEQ-500 platform, its ancillary reagents and nucleic acid extraction kit.

The NIFTY® Test uses next-generation sequencing technology to estimate the risk of a fetus having Down’s syndrome (T21), Edwards’ syndrome (T18) and Patau’s syndrome (T13), by analyzing cell-free fetal DNA from a sample of maternal blood from 10 weeks’ gestation. The test also screens for certain sex chromosomal disorders and deletion syndromes. The NIFTY® Test has processed more than 2,500,000 samples globally as of the end of 2017*.
