The IONA® test is the first complete CE-IVD product for labs wishing to offer their own in-house non-invasive prenatal testing (NIPT) service. 

The IONA® test is an advanced prenatal screening test which is offered to pregnant women to estimate the risk that their fetus may be affected with:

  • Trisomy 21 (Down’s syndrome)
  • Trisomy 18 (Edwards’ syndrome)
  • Trisomy 13 (Patau’s syndrome)
  • Fetal sex determination optional

The analysis is performed on cell-free placental DNA from a maternal blood sample, with test results available with a turnaround time of just 3 days. By offering this service locally, laboratories can broaden their offering and provide pregnant women fast, reliable results that reduce the need for invasive tests and the associated stress and anxiety.
