This table shows noninvasive prenatal genetic tests being offered commercially in select developing and developed countries, where NIPT is currently marketed, or where marketing deals have been signed. This list is a subset of 61 countries where NIPT is currently marketed (the full list is available in table S1), generated from Internet searches of press releases, company websites, industry trade reports, and newspapers/popular press articles between 1 January 2012 and 15 March 2014. Searches focused only on commercial offering of noninvasive prenatal tests for chromosomal aneuploidies using cell-free fetal DNA.
