What is Harmony NIPT ?
The Harmony NIPT is a non-invasive prenatal test for pregnant women which estimates the risk of a fetus having Down’s syndrome (T21), Edward’s syndrome (T18) and Patau’s Syndrome (T13). Harmony NIPT also analyses the sex chromosome aneuploidies (SCA). The Harmony test looks for SCAs such as: Monosomy X (a cause of Turner syndrome), XXY (a cause of Klinefelter syndrome) and others. Fetal sex determination is always available as an option.
The Harmony NIPT is an advanced screening test carried out on a small blood sample taken from the mother’s arm with no risk of miscarriage. NIPT has several advantages over other methods of fetal screening. The test can be performed earlier in pregnancy and is 99 % accurate. This means that you get a more reliable result with NIPT than with other screening methods, such as Combined Ultrasound and Blood test (Nuchal Translucency).

NIPT: How it works and who can have it?
During pregnancy, the placenta leaks cell-free DNA which circulates in the maternal bloodstream. NIPT measures the amount of that cell-free DNA and can detect small changes in the DNA ratio between the maternal and placental-fetal cell-free DNA when a fetal trisomy 21, 18 or 13 is present. Trisomies occur when three, instead of the usual two, copies of a chromosome are present.
The Harmony NIPT test is suitable for pregnant women from week 10 + 0 and is suitable for both single or twin pregnancy and assisted pregnancies such as IVF or surrogate.
The Harmony NIPT analyses also gender chromosome abnormalities. Gender chromosome abnormalities generally cause milder and more diffuse symptoms than trisomies , such as learning disabilities and infertility.
NIPT is generally not suitable for women with cancer or who themselves have trisomic syndrome or have undergone a blood transfusion in the last 12 months.
