The Harmony Prenatal Test
The Harmony Non-Invasive Prenatal Test
“Clear answers to questions that matter.”
Since Non-invasive Prenatal Testing (NIPT) first became available in early 2013, there have been changes to test methodologies and new evidence has emerged about test performance. We carefully reviewed the evidence regarding the accuracy and reliability of different forms of NIPT, and chose the Harmony Prenatal Test. We constantly review the medical literature on NIPT to ensure that we are providing you with a test that meets these high standards.
As part of the testing process, our NIPT includes a precise and accurate measure of the amount of fetal DNA in your blood before proceeding with chromosome analysis. This step is important as it ensures that there is enough of your baby’s DNA available in your blood to provide a reliable result.
From as early as 10 weeks, non-invasive prenatal testing accurately assesses the risk of Down syndrome in pregnant women, of any age or risk category – learn more about the recent New England Journal of Medicine study.
The quality and stability of the Harmony Prenatal Test has been documented in almost one million patient samples through the Ariosa laboratory in the USA. Other NIPT methods cannot provide the same assurance regarding consistency.
Performed in Australia
Sonic Genetics has performed the Harmony non-invasive prenatal test in our Australian laboratory since 2015. We have tested many thousands of women in that time.
The Harmony test is also provided by other laboratories in other countries. To date, Harmony has been performed on more than one million patient samples around the world.
