Non-Invasive Prenatal Testing
Harmony Non-Invasive Prenatal Testing (NIPT)
Clinical Labs is proud to be the exclusive Australian provider of Harmony NIPT, the most accurate non-invasive prenatal test, including 22q11.2 microdeletion.
The Harmony® prenatal test is a DNA-based blood screening test for the most common chromosomal abnormalities, including Down syndrome. Harmony is more accurate than traditional tests and can be performed as early as 10 weeks into pregnancy with just a simple blood test 1,2.
Harmony is a highly accurate test, with clinical testing demonstrating its ability to identify over 99% of Down syndrome cases and maintain a false-positive rate of less than 0.1% 1,2. In comparison, combined first trimester screening (cFTS) can detect 85-90% of pregnancies with trisomy 21 and has a higher false-positive rate of 3-5%2. Clinicians in more than 100 countries have trusted Harmony 3.
