The Aster Clinic offers the Harmony NIPT Test for:
Down’s syndrome (T21)
Edwards syndrome (T18)
Patau syndrome (T13)
The Harmony test (NIPT) is currently the most advanced non-invasive pregnancy screening test for parents that wish to screen for Down’s syndrome (Trisomy 21), Edward's syndrome (Trisomy 18) or Patau’s syndrome (Trisomy 13).
Using a DNA-based technology, the Harmony prenatal test has been shown to identify more than 99% of pregnancies with Down syndrome.
It uses the latest technology to assesses the fetal DNA taken from a simple blood test from the mother and provides a probability for the three most common chromosome disorders, Down syndrome (trisomy 21), Edward's syndrome (trisomy 18), and Patau syndrome (trisomy 13).
The Harmony test has a higher positive predictive value (PPV) than the current NHS combined test.
It is a non-invasive test
From 10 weeks performed by our consultant Obstetrician.
The Harmony Test is processed by The Doctors Laboratory in London. Please see more information about the Harmony Test
No screening test is able to exclude all rare condition.
A low probability NIPT test at 10 weeks of pregnancy does not exclude the finding of a structural concern at the time of the NHS Dating scan or later in the pregnancy. The optimal time for NIPT is 11 + weeks.
