The Harmony Test is a non-invasive prenatal screening test (NIPT) with a specialized design that results in an exceptionally high detection rate and a very low false positive rate. The test analyses defined gene sequences, leading to a reduction of the analysis time and low test costs.
A mother’s blood contains her own genetic information as well as that of her child, even in the early phases of pregnancy. This so-called “cell-free fetal DNA” (cffDNA) can now be tested for the presence of chromosomal disorders in the unborn child (e.g. trisomies) by means of a simple blood test for the mother.

The Harmony Test is now able to determine fetal sex in twin pregnancies. This breakthrough has been achieved through refinements of the Harmony Test’s specialized analyzing algorithm (“FORTE”). For the sex determination the test detects sequences of the Y chromosome in the cell-free DNA. If DNA from the Y chromosome is detected in maternal blood […]
For pregnant women and their families, waiting for the results of a prenatal test is often a huge mental burden. We are pleased to inform you that Cenata has reduced the analysis time for the Harmony Test by 25% – to just three working days. This means that the results of the Harmony Test are […]
