While a comprehensive carrier screen is recommended if you are pregnant or planning for pregnancy, the Expanded Carrier Screen panel can also be customized for your unique family planning needs. We have 4 test offerings:
- Standard Panel: The 4 diseases on this panel are recommended for people of any ethnic background who want to receive only standard carrier screening
- High-Frequency Panel: These 10 diseases have been found to occur at an increased frequency in all ethnic backgrounds.
- Comprehensive Jewish Carrier Screen: This panel of 96 diseases includes 48 diseases relevant to the Ashkenazim, 38 diseases relevant to the Sephardi and Mizrahi communities, and 10 diseases common to all people of Jewish descent
- Expanded Carrier Screen: A comprehensive carrier screen, which tests for 281 genetic diseases
Your doctor may also recommend customizing the carrier screen to test for just one or more diseases. For additional information about carrier screening, please speak with your doctor or contact us to speak with one of our genetic counselors.
