The Harmony test (NIPT) is currently the most advanced non-invasive pregnancy screening test for for parents that wish to screen for Down’s syndrome (Trisomy 21), Edwards’ 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), Edwards syndrome (trisomy 18), and Patau syndrome (trisomy 13).
The Harmony test has a higher positive predictive value (PPV) than the current NHS combined test.
