"The name perfectly describes Aria's goal of bringing harmony to patients, medical service providers and healthcare networks by offering an advanced prenatal test that is highly accurate, accessible and affordable to a broad population," said Todd Whitson, vice president of sales and commercial operations at Aria Diagnostics. "The current landscape of prenatal testing can be cumbersome and confusing. We hope to streamline the process by providing this simple blood test."

The Harmony Prenatal Test utilizes new technology which couples innovative biochemistry, DANSR™, and a proprietary algorithm, FORTE™, to efficiently analyze patients' blood samples.

The company also announces the publication of a study on the effects of temperature during shipping of blood specimens. The article titled, "Influence of Temperature during Transportation on Cell-Free DNA Analysis" is published online in the journal Fetal Diagnosis and Therapy and available at http://content.karger.com/produktedb/produkte.asp?DOI=000335020. This publication follows several recent data announcements, including the peer-reviewed journal publication of three clinical studies in more than 1,000 patients and the launch of a large scale clinical trial comparing the Harmony Prenatal Test with the standard first-trimester screening test in 25,000 women.

The company will be exhibiting information about the Harmony Prenatal Test and its proprietary technology approach at the Society for Maternal Fetal Medicine's 32nd Annual Meeting in Dallas, TX, Feb. 8-11.
