N-Scan N-Guard N-Advance

Three types of plan

N-Scan

Plan recommended for those who want to reduce costs but prefer a full range of tests

  1. Here, in addition to typical diseases, you will find microdeletions, Partial deletions and duplications can be tested in this plan.
    This plan is the most popular with customers among the three types and offers a wider range of testing.
    This plan is recommended for those who want to keep the cost down but want to have a thorough examination.

Coverage of inspection items

The N-Scan comes with all the tests for ‘chromosome 21’, ‘chromosome 18’, ‘chromosome 13’ and ‘sex chromosome’.
The other items are different for each plan, so you can choose the plan that fulfils the items you want to inspect. The plan that satisfies all is N-Scan FM.

When N-ScanFM has a coverage rate of 100%, N-Scan GM has a coverage rate of 80.9%.
The remaining 19.1% are not included in the plan and therefore cannot be reported in the event of a positive result.

N-Scan

N-guard

Plan for those who want to pinpoint the inspection

  1. This plan allows testing for frequent diseases. Chromosomes 13, 18 and 21 and sex chromosomes.
  2. This plan is recommended for those who want to check only specific diseases at a lower cost anyway.

Coverage of inspection items

The N-Guard only includes a test for chromosome 21, which is the most common form of Down syndrome. The plan that only tests for Down syndrome is N-Guard H.
You can choose a plan with ‘chromosome 21’ plus any other items you wish to test, so you can find a plan that suits your needs.
※There are no plans to test for ‘all autosomal whole-region partial deletions/duplications of disease’.

When N-ScanFM has a coverage rate of 100%, N-Guard Hms has a coverage rate of approximately 41%.
