Dynacare Selected by BC Prenatal Genetic Screening Program as Exclusive Provider for Funded NIPT.

We are pleased to announce that as of February 22, 2016, Dynacare Next is the exclusive provider of funded Non-Invasive Prenatal Testing (NIPT) for the BC Prenatal Genetic Screening Program for women who meet specific criteria. This award was made following a Request for Proposal (RFP) by the BC Provincial Health Services Authority (PHSA).
Dynacare Next offers the HarmonyTM Prenatal Test - a maternal blood screening test from which cell free fetal DNA is analyzed to identify risk of fetal trisomies (21, 18 and 13) in pregnancies of 10 weeks or more. The HarmonyTM test can be performed on singleton and twin pregnancies as well as IVF pregnancies, and also offers options for testing sex chromosome aneuploidies.

Dynacare Next has a network of collection sites for the Harmony test across the province. For the full list of funded NIPT collection sites or for more information on the BC program, go to www.bcprenatalscreening.ca.

Women who are not defined as high-risk as per the BC funded criteria but who are interested in the Harmony Prenatal Test have the option of a self-pay test. For more information on how to access the HarmonyTM Prenatal Test, please contact Dynacare Next at 888.988.1888 or DynacareNext@dynacare.ca.
