What is The Harmony Prenatal Test?
The Harmony Prenatal test is a Non Invasive Prenatal Test (NIPT) for Down’s syndrome (Trisomy 21) and similar chromosomal conditions.
It assesses free fetal DNA which is present in the mothers blood circulation. The laboratory techniques will extract the fetal DNA from a simple blood test from the mother.
It has over 99% accuracy in detecting Down's syndrome (trisomy 21) in addition to Edward's syndrome (trisomy 18), and Patau's syndrome (trisomy 13) without the risk of miscarriage.
At the Aster Baby Scan Clinic it is performed by Dr Bamfo and we work The Doctors Laboratory (TDL) to provide the Harmony Prenatal test to our mums to be.
