What is NIPT?
NIPT (Non Invasive Prenatal Test) is a blood test which analyses a small amount of baby’s DNA found in the mother’s blood. It can give a strong indication if the baby has Down's syndrome. There are several laboratories which carry out this analysis. We offer the Harmony test and the Panorama test. Both tests have a reporting time of approximately 10-14 calendar days and will assess the most common chromosome conditions such as Down's syndrome (also known as trisomy 21), Edwards syndrome (trisomy 18) and Patau syndrome (trisomy 13); but can also test for some additional rarer conditions.
