What is Illumina?

NIPT testing is offered primarily using next-generation sequencing (NGS) technology. This test non-invasively tests for chromosomal abnormalities in the foetus during pregnancy and screens for conditions such as Down syndrome and trisomy.

What is Medicover?

It offers NIPT testing using proprietary technology. In addition to screening for chromosomal abnormalities in the foetus, it also provides information on the sex of the foetus and the amount of free DNA in the pregnancy.

The only NIPT test in Japan with an
exclusive contract with Medicover


Hiro Clinic is the only company in Japan with an exclusive contract with Medicover.

Medicover’s NIPT is more technically advanced than conventional NIPT tests, which also require international patents. In addition to four types of microdeletion syndromes, 228 serious recessive genetic disorders, and in South East Asia only the Tokyo Health Laboratory, with which Hiro Clinic is affiliated, provides the technology. Hiro Clinic is the only laboratory in the country that carries out the test, so the results are available quickly.

We have experienced Japanese Society of Obstetrics and Gynaecology specialists and Japanese Society of Human Genetics-certified clinical geneticists on staff to meet the various needs of pregnant women. We also offer a wider range of tests and advanced technology.

  • 3CAP certification
  • Dec 2023 CAP certification renewed.
    The laboratory that carries out NIPT testing at HIRO CLINIC has obtained CAP (College of American Path – ologists) certification, which is valuable as only two (2) laboratories in the country have obtained CAP certification for NIPT testing. This ensures that testing accuracy and procedures are guaranteed by an external organisation.
    This certification is renewed every two years, when CAP auditors from all over the world visit the hygiene laboratory and inspect whether inspections are carried out in accordance with the rules of the certification body. The survey verifies that the equipment and personnel are managed and operated correctly, and that errors are verified and reported when they occur and corrective action is taken correctly. Renewal of this certification must be supervised by a laboratory director who has performed administrative tasks at a CAP certification body, and regular verification must be carried out.
    Additionally, what sets CAP apart from ISO is its biannual verification. During this verification, the actual specimens are sent by the CAP governing body to each facility to verify that the tests are consistent across CAP facilities.

We respect the “right to know” of pregnant women and their families so that they can have a safe and healthy birth.
Towards a proper understanding of NIPT
NIPT aims to be widely understood not only to provide information on the health of the foetus, but also to maintain the health of the mother.
