Harmony Basic (trisomies 21, 18 and 13 + fetal sex)
Harmony Basic is a non-invasive prenatal test (NIPT) designed to assess the risk of trisomies 21, 18, 13. If the pregnant woman wishes, the sex of the fetus is indicated. The NIPT test is based on the analysis of free DNA. Free DNA (cfDNA) that circulates in the blood of a pregnant woman also contains a fraction of fetal placental DNA (cffDNA). The assay is performed using targeted microarray sequencing technology. Determination of the sex of the fetus (in the case of a twin pregnancy, it can be determined whether at least one of the fetuses has a Y chromosome, i.e., is male). Suitable for singleton and twin pregnancies, except for pregnancies with non-developing twins.
