The sensibility or reliability of the test is very high, as it has screening rates higher than 99% with false positives lower than 0,1%.Therefore, the great difference with respect to the routine tests used nowadays, is a clear reduction, of up to five times, of the false positive results that to perform unnecessary invasive tests.
Is not useful in multiple pregnancies but it can be applied in all other pregnancies achieved after assisted reproduction treatments, included the egg donation ones.
