What is the Harmony Test

The Harmony prenatal test is a DNA-based blood screening test for the most common chromosomal abnormalities, including Down syndrome.

This test can be performed as early as 10 weeks into pregnancy and was developed to be a more accurate prenatal screening test, minimising the chance that further testing would be recommended due to a false-positive result.

The Harmony prenatal test can screen for:

  • Down syndrome
  • Conditions caused by having an extra or missing copy of the X or Y chromosomes
  • The gender of your baby

Results will be provided to you as:

  • A“low probability” result (the test did not find evidence of specific chromosome conditions).
  • Or a “high probability” result (a larger or smaller amount of DNA than expected from a specific chromosome was found). This does not necessarily mean that the fetus has a chromosome condition & all results should be discussed with your healthcare provider.

Please be aware that the Harmony test is currently not covered by Medicare or Private Health Insurers. Speak to us to discuss all your options for prenatal screening.
