Why take this test?

Safe, early and accurate

With a simple blood test there is no risk to mother or baby. Our test can be taken by expectant mothers 10 weeks into pregnancy, which gives you results sooner than the standard NHS serum test. The Vanadis NIPT test offered by Melio also has a higher detection rate than the NHS serum test.

Do I need to fast?

Fasting is not necessary for this test. Please stay hydrated for the appointment and avoid consuming tea, coffee or caffeinated drinks before the test, as these may make the blood draw more difficult.

No hidden costs

Everything from the in-clinic blood draw and tracked shipment of samples to the lab, through to delivery of the results and medical report is included in the price.

Professional testing

This test is performed as an in-clinic blood draw by a trained health professional and the samples are analysed by UKAS accredited labs.

Markers included in the analysis

Non-Invasive Prenatal Testing (NIPT) is a screening test that looks at the baby’s DNA in the mother’s bloodstream to identify if the baby is affected by Trisomy 21 (Down’s Syndrome), Trisomy 18 (Edwards’ Syndrome) and Trisomy 13 (Patau’s Syndrome). It can also tell you the baby's sex, if you desire, at no additional cost. The test only requires a small blood sample taken from the mother and is analysed at a UKAS accredited NHS laboratory. The results are available in 5-11 business days.

“I bought a general health monitoring test for prevention reasons. I have always had high cholesterol but did not know to what extent it could indicate cardiovascular risk. With Melio I have learned a lot about health and healthy habits.”
