Carrier Screening is a simple non-invasive test that looks for genetic changes (gene mutations) that are linked to many of the most common and devastating diseases that can be passed unknowingly from parent to child.
The Hereditary Carrier Screening is for parents and prospective parents, and provides information regarding whether an individual’s genetic make-up has genetic mutations that are linked to a recessive disease that could be passed onto their offspring. The results provide information on the likelihood that a child will inherit one of a number of rare diseases.
