Private Clinics & Hospitals For NIPT (Harmony or Panorama or neoBona Test)

For the past decade, doctors have utilised the Nuchal Translucency Scan to assess pregnant women on their risk of having a baby with Down syndrome, or other possible abnormalities. This scan enables doctors to look at the skin fold of the baby’s neck along with baby’s nose bone near the 12 week mark. This combined with an additional blood test make for a 92% predictive value. While these results are strong, there is still a high margin for error, and women who present as high risk may elect to proceed to Chorion Villous Sampling (CVS) or Amniocentesis. Unfortunately, these tests are invasive and carry a risk of miscarriage of about 1:100.

Even the slightest chance of miscarriage is a scary thought for any new mum. The good news is, Non-Invasive Prenatal Testing (NIPT) is now available. Doctors have discovered that a simple blood sample taken from the mother at around 10 weeks can be analysed for cell free foetal DNA. The results of this test have a predictive value of more than 99%, greatly reducing the need for more invasive and risky testing.

There are currently three main tests available in the UK – Harmony Test, Panorama Test, and neoBona Test. Please contact the clinics listed here to know more about the NIPT they offer during pregnancy.
