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.
