As the only non-invasive prenatal test approved by Health Canada, the Harmony test from Dynacare Prenatal Solutions provides accurate screening for Trisomy 21 (Down syndrome), Trisomy 18 and 13, and sex chromosome abnormalities.
Harmony analyzes a sample of the mother’s blood to determine the risk of Trisomy 21 (Down syndrome), Trisomy 18 (Edwards syndrome) and Trisomy 13 (Patau syndrome) in the fetus using DNA shed from the placenta (cfDNA). It can be done as early as 10 weeks of pregnancy, and can also identify whether the fetus is male or female.
The Harmony test from Dynacare Prenatal Solutions detects T21 (Down syndrome) with an accuracy rate greater than 99%.
