Neobona v Harmony NIPT

Has anyone chosen the new Neobona test over the Harmony test? My clinic have just switched over but it is an additional £400 and I can't quite work out whether it is worth the additional money...

Hi Bellabelloo,
What did you end up doing? We are now faced with the same dilema. The combined test showed high risk and unsure which test to choose next. Would be great to get our advice.

I recently had a neoBona in London after research around Harmony testing online I found neobona was the better test due to the low level of the babies dna in mothers blood. I had a small placenta detected on my scan at 12 weeks. Due to a high risk with triple test on NHS due to me being 40 I decided i wanted to have the NIPT test to put your mind at rest early in my pregnancy. I was 13 weeks and wouldn't have a invasive test due to previous miscarriages as I had finally got to 12 weeks. So I paid £500 and i had the blood test along with a scan to check babies heart beat. After the appointment the clinic gave me a call to go through my results which were all ok and to inform me I was having a baby girl. (I already have a boy so this was exciting news!!) I had the basic neobona with fetal sex. Hope that helps!! The relief is worth every penny, believe me.

NIFTY is another alternative.

I've had Neobona and the lab in Spain lost my sample and didn't think to inform my private clinic. It was only after waiting two weeks and my private clinic hassling them (after the Neobona clinic ignored emails originally) that we found out. So I have to have my bloods re-drawn. Not impressed.

I have undergone Neobona Test before weeks. Neobona test will give you efficient result as its the only nipt test which examines both ends of the DNA sequence . In my case first Doctor asked me to do Harmony Test but the result was not accurate and he asked me to do Neobona Test from FML . You can get the test details from here . As per his advice i did Neobona test and paid only some extra fees . As FML is a joint venture with Synlab which is a pioneer for the new advances related to the non-invasive prenatal test on maternal blood all test was done efficient and give accurate results in one week.

I recently had a neoBona advanced, still waiting for my results. After research around Harmony I also found Neobona was the better test in my case, as I am overweight and was afraid of low level of the babies dna in my blood. The second reason was that they use both ends of the DNA sequence.
But now I am in process of waiting and did some search on it and it seems I can't find any information on false negative and false positives of this test, any reviews on it. Now I am a bit worried that there no much clinical studies on it and I wish I had done Harmony which is more popular.
