Eurofins LifeCodexx

First NIPT provider in Europe

We have been developing clinically validated, non-invasive prenatal tests (NIPT) since 2010. In 2012 the PrenaTest® was launched on the market as Europe’s first NIPT. It has now become firmly established in many gynecological practices in Europe, the Middle East, and Asia as a reliable, fast and safe test method. Since the start of 2018, LifeCodexx has belonged to Eurofins Scientific, a leading international laboratory group, and has strengthened the technology portfolio of the Clinical Diagnostics business unit.

 

Incidentally, did you know that LifeCodexx brought about a lasting change to prenatal diagnostics with the PrenaTest®? In 2013, we submitted applications for NIPT to be covered by health insurance.The Joint National Committee of Germany (G-BA) has now decided: Perhaps as early as the fall of 2020, NIPT will be paid for by health insurance companies and included in the German Maternity Guidelines.Please also read our press release.
