.

Carrier screening provides you and your patient with information regarding their reproductive risks and how their children may be impacted. By knowing each parent’s genetic risks, families can understand the chance that a child may or may not be affected by certain hereditary conditions that run in the family.

What information does this test provide?

    • A negative test can reassure your patient that there is a reduced risk of having a child with a genetic disorder.
    • A positive test allows your patient the chance to pursue reproductive options that can reduce the chance of having an affected child.

What can we do with this information?

With positive results you can:

    • Find a specialist
    • Pursue Pre-implementation Genetic Diagnosis/Screening (PGD/PGS)
    • Go through In-Vitro Fertilization (IVF)
    • Make other plans such as (adoption, etc.)
