Non-Invasive Pregnancy Test (NIPT) (from £425)

Non-invasive prenatal testing (NIPT) uses cell-free DNA (cfDNA) derived from the pregnancy to evaluate possible chromosomal conditions in a pregnancy. NIPT is a prenatal chromosomal screening test that can be performed as early as 10 weeks of pregnancy using a single blood draw.  

We offer the Illumina VeriSeq v2 NIPT for £425 (which has replaced Harmony) with a complimentary courier service to take your sample directly to the UK-based laboratory for speedier turnaround which is usually 5 working days.  We also offer IONACare (£450-£515) which has additional SCA and AA tests (costing an extra £65 so costing £515 in total) - IONA's lab is in Manchester and if sample is hand delivered can return results in 2-3 working days.

Price for both Illumina VeriSeq v2 and IONA NIPTs includes the blood test and an ultrasound scan with scan prints.
