    Default 12 week down syndrome blood test

    Hi all, just curious to know how long it took you to get your blood test results for the 12 week test where they screen for down syndrome. I have searched high and low for a turnaround time on this testing but can't find it anywhere! I am in Melbourne, Vic. Cheers!

    Is that the one they use with the scan to determine?
    I only know about that one and I was told to have it about ten days before so that on the day of the scan it would be ready. So around a week I guess?

    If its the harmony test / NIPT, its around 10 business days..
    The QML website says 3-7 business days but after no results i called and thats when i was told the 10 business days.

    Yes if it's the NIPT like harmony etc it's about a week if tested in Aus or about 10-12 days if sending it to the US.

    Do you mean the standard test that they use with the 12 week scan to calculate the odds? I think the pathology place here said get it done at least a week before your scan. That means that hopefully the scan place will have the blood test results when you go for the scan, but they can always chase the results up and forward the report to your Dr.

    The Harmony test you pay privately for (it's about ($500), you get the referral from your dr, go online to Sonic Medical (I think?) book a collection time & pay online. I got mine done on a Tuesday and had the results on the Monday, although they said 10 working days for results.
