 Harmony test

The Ariosa HarmonyTM prenatal test is a new option in prenatal screening for Down’s syndrome (trisomy 21), Edward’s syndrome (trisomy 18), Patau’s syndrome (trisomy 13), and also fetal sex (X and Y) chromosome conditions and works by analysing cell-free DNA circulating in the pregnant mother’s blood.

It is non-invasive and therefore does not carry a risk of miscarriage or a risk of other adverse outcomes that may be associated with invasive testing such as chorion villus sampling (CVS) or Amniocentesis.
