If you’re interested in discovering more about your family’s genetics or how your DNA could affect your future children, CarrierCheck may be right for you. CarrierCheck is a simple genetic screen that you can order online. It gives you insight into your carrier status for 67 inherited diseases. Every CarrierCheck order also includes a customized test report to help you understand your results.
If you're pregnant or planning for pregnancy, a more comprehensive carrier screen like our Expanded Carrier Screen, is recommended by medical experts, such as the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists. It screens for additional conditions, like spinal muscular atrophy, that are important to test for if you are trying to have a child. The Expanded Carrier Screen is designed to give you a comprehensive and accurate understanding of your risk of passing a genetic condition onto your child. It screens for 281 inherited diseases, including cystic fibrosis, fragile X syndrome, and spinal muscular atrophy. The results of the Expanded Carrier Screen are 99% accurate, to help you have the information you need to feel confident when making family planning choices.
