  • OBJECTIVE To determine the effects of gestational age and maternal weight on percent fetal cell-free DNA (cfDNA) in maternal plasma and the change in fetal cfDNA amounts within the same patient over time. [...] Key MethodMETHODS The cfDNA was extracted from maternal plasma from 22 384 singleton pregnancies of at least 10 weeks gestation undergoing the Harmony(TM) Prenatal Test. The Harmony Prenatal Test determined fetal percentage via directed analysis of cfDNA. Expand Abstract
