Harmony Pre Natal Testing

 

We are pleased to advise that Labtests are now able to offer Harmony non-invasive prenatal genetic testing (NIPT) to all specialists, general practitioners and midwives in the region. This is a response to the continued requests from our obstetric community for a safe and effective screening tool in the prenatal period.

Currently this testing is not covered under the community contract for funded pathology testing services, and does incur a cost of $1,000 NZD per patient. This sum covers collection, transport of samples to the USA, testing and reporting of results.

Turnaround time is around ten working days from collection to result, and tests can be taken from ten weeks onwards.

Please follow the link below for Labtests NIPT request form. Kindly complete the form and give to your patient who must take the original form to one of the Labtests collection centres listed below. Please note that this test is not available at any other Labtests collection centre.

Please advise your patient that payment for the test must be made at time of collection. Results will be sent to you either by email or mail within 10 working days of collection of sample.

We are delighted to be able to offer this test and trust you will find it a very useful addition to your current prenatal resources. For further information on this test please call Wayne Dawn, Customer Services Manager Labtests on 021 407 300 or email: wayne.dawn@labtests.co.nz
