New Harmony Downs Screening Test Available
We have a new service which is the Harmony Downs Screening Test, that can be carried
out from 10 weeks gestation along with
fetal gender determination if requested.
It has been discovered that a blood sample taken from the mother at any time from early pregnancy can be analysed for cell free fetal DNA, which is essentially a marker in the mother’s blood of the DNA of the baby. The result of the simple blood test (Harmony), taken at 10 weeks or later, is predictive to more than 99% accuracy in Downs syndrome, 98% of Edwards syndrome and 80% of Patau’s syndrome which will hugely reduce the need for invasive testing by CVS or amniocentesis. It is important that an ultrasound scan is performed just before the blood test to confirm the pregnancy, and to check that the mother is not carrying twins or more. The result of the Harmony is predictive to more than 99% in Downs syndrome.
