This is a new, non-invasive, pre-natal screening test for Down’s syndrome (Trisomy 21), Edward’s syndrome (Trisomy 18), Patau’s syndrome (Trisomy 13) and the fetal sex if requested.
The Harmony test measures fetal DNA present in the mothers blood and is available from 10 weeks gestation. It can be requested for single and twin pregnancies including IVF pregnancies.
The Harmony Prenatal test supersedes the nuchal, and all other screening tests. It is proven to give a 99.6 % accurate result without putting the pregnancy at risk of miscarriage or other adverse outcomes associated with invasive testing such as amniocentesis.
The test involves an accurate dating scan and a blood sample taken from the mother. The blood sample is sent by courier to London where it is tested. The results are returned to us within 5 working days and will be relayed immediately by phone to the mother with a follow up written report.
Full details can be found on the Harmony website for expecting parents. The NHS website also provides some useful information here. If you have any other questions or would like to make an appointment, please contact us and we will be happy to help.
