Non-Invasive NIPT Test For Genetic Conditions

Are you looking for non-invasive prenatal genetic testing? Book your NIPT Test formally known as “Harmony Test” with Ultrasound Plus – one of the UK’s leading private providers of NIPT testing from as early as 10 weeks. With our clinics nationwide, we make it easier for women to access quality prenatal care in a private and welcoming environment. NIPT (Harmony Test) analyses cell-free DNA in maternal blood and gives a strong indication of whether the baby has at high or low chance of having trisomy 21 (Downs syndrome), trisomy 18 (Edwards syndrome) or trisomy 13 (Patau syndrome).

What Is Non-Invasive DNA Prenatal Testing?

NIPT (Similar To Harmony Test ) is a highly developed non-invasive NIPT testing method that determines the likelihood of a fetus having a genetic disorder caused by an extra chromosomal abnormality, commonly known as trisomy. This specific test searches for chromosomal abnormalities including trisomy 21 (Downs syndrome), trisomy 18 (Edwards’ syndrome), and, trisomy 13 (Patau’s syndrome), as well as sex chromosome conditions. The NIPT test results are intended to be used in conjunction with other clinical and other diagnostic test findings, consistent with professional standards of practice, including confirmatory fetal diagnostic testing, parental evaluation, clinical genetic evaluation, and counselling, as appropriate.

What to Expect During Your NIPT Test

Upon arrival at our clinic for an NIPT, you will be requested to fill out a consent form online prior to conducting the scan and blood test. Following the signing of the consent form and completion of the non-invasive prenatal and simple blood test itself, the sample will be forwarded to our UK laboratory to extract the DNA. The blood test, also referred to as the harmony test, accurately detects DNA and identifies any potential issues that may not be visible on an ultrasound scan.

At least 2% Sufficient DNA must be present in the maternal blood for accurate results. If the quantity is inadequate, an additional blood sample will be required at no extra cost. The results of the blood test and your NIPT scan report will be available within five to seven working days. The Prenatal Test is a non-invasive prenatal testing (NIPT) based on cell-free DNA analysis.

Understanding Your NIPT Test Results

If an NIPT Test result is deemed high-risk, an invasive follow-up procedure is recommended, such as amniocentesis or CVS. The likelihood of requiring this invasive procedure is less than 1%. While this first screening result can be concerning, rest assured that medical professionals will conduct further testing, and all results will be provided to you for forwarding to your GP or midwife.

It’s important to note that a high-risk result for trisomy 21, 18, 13, or sex chromosome conditions does not necessarily mean that the fetus has one of these conditions, but it is highly probable. Taking this step is essential for ensuring your baby’s safety and health throughout your pregnancy.

I booked my appointment (Growth Scan) with the Northampton unit, however, the Ultrasound Plus team called me the day before saying that they would have to rebook it to a different unit. Due to date availability, we chose to go to the Birmingham unit. The clinic is very small and the team is quite nice. I must say that it was a bit rushed compared to other private scans that I've had before, so I'm not sure if I was squeezed in between appointments or if it is usually like this. Since the assessments were done as requested when booking, I must say that overall it was a nice experience.
