 Genetic tests during pregnancy


What makes the NextGen Test different to the Harmony, Panorama or other genetic tests?

There are now so many genetic tests available, it can be confusing to work out if there is any difference between the tests.


Some like the NextGen Test are accredited and done in accredited medical pathology laboratories to test for serious treatable genetic conditions. Others do not provide reliable, trustworthy information that can be used to make medical decisions, they may provide information on ancestry or personal characteristics or probabilities of getting a particular disease which contain a lot of uncertainty.

When a test is completed

The NextGen Test is done on a baby or child after it is born to test for conditions which can be treated. Some genetic tests are done during pregnancy to identify conditions in the baby which can’t be treated.
