Image: In contrast to tests that use MPSS (massively parallel shotgun sequencing), randomly sequencing all cell-free DNA (cfDNA), the Harmony test focuses on cfDNA from the chromosomes of interest. This unique, directed approach allows deeper analysis and ultimately yields more accurate results (Photo courtesy of Ariosa Diagnostics).

DNA-Based Blood Test Detects Down Syndrome as Early as the Tenth Week of Pregnancy

Down syndrome can now be detected using a noninvasive blood test to evaluate cell-free DNA found in maternal blood as early as 10 weeks into pregnancy.   More...
