National Cervical Screening Program

A Healthier Future for Australian Women is on the way.

From December 2017, a new National Cervical Screening Program comes is to be implemented which will changes the way Australian women are screened for cervical cancer. The MBS will not longer cover traditional Pap-smears on glass slides, moving to a Molecular HPV DNA test.

Under the new guidelines, a sample of cells is collected from the cervix and placed into a liquid based specimen vial, which will be analysed to identify the presence of HPV viral DNA at the molecular level. The aim of the new HPV program is to improve detection rate of precursor lesions of SCC and to have an impact to lower adenocarcinoma rates.

Harmony Prenatal Testing

Harmony is a non-invasive pre-natal test which is analysed from a simple blood sample during pregnancy from week 10 onwards.

The basic principle of prenatal screening is to offer a safe, accessible and accurate test to ALL pregnant women in order to identify those women with an increased likelihood of having a baby with a chromosomal aneuploidy that can cause birth defects and mental retardation such as Down Syndrome (Trisomy 21), Edwards Syndrome (Trisomy 18) or Patau Syndrome (Trisomy 13).

Australian Clinical Labs is NATA accredited for the Harmony Non-Invasive Prenatal Testing/Screening (NIPT/NIPS), performed at our Clayton Laboratory in Melbourne which allows for high accuracy and quick result turn-around times.
