This review describes different characteristic of cell free fetal DNA including the origin, size and percentage of cell free fetal DNA compared to cell free maternal DNA. The small percentage of cell free fetal DNA in maternal plasma is the most important challenge for the routine usage of fetal DNA in clinic. After the discovery of cell-free fetal DNA in maternal blood during pregnancy, researchers tried to develop more reliable extraction and detection methods and now there are a promising view employing cell free fetal DNA for the non-invasive prenatal diagnosis.
Keywords: Non- invasive prenatal diagnosis, cffDNA, Maternal plasma
