Dear valued referrers and patients,

With the outbreak of COVID-19, our laboratories are working tirelessly to expand COVID-19 testing across New Zealand, accordingly, our staff and some of our laboratory instruments are being redeployed for this purpose.

We have a responsibility and an inherent desire to do all we can to assist with national testing efforts for the virus. Our dedicated team that carry out the non-invasive prenatal testing are currently setting up COVID-19 testing at Labtests.

Accordingly, we would like to share some important updates pertaining to our Illumiscreen service:

With effect from 24th March, the service will be suspended until further notice.

It is with great disappointment that we make this announcement however we are dedicated to supporting our fellow New Zealanders at this incredibly challenging time. We deliver the Illumiscreen service with great pride and we assure you that as soon as we are able to continue this service we will notify you.

Please reach out to us if you have any questions at

Thank you,

The Illumiscreen Team
