Eugene’s genetic carrier screening is a convenient saliva-based test that can be completed from home. It's the test that checks to see if you or your partner carry a gene variant that could cause a serious genetic disease in your child.
All of our tests screen for the more common genetic conditions including cystic fibrosis, spinal muscular atrophy, Tay-Sachs Disease and fragile X syndrome. In addition, our Expanded panel screens for 268 recessive conditions, and 21 X-linked conditions and our Comprehensive panel for more than 500 conditions.
“Carrier screening for genetic conditions should be recommended to all couples planning a family, irrespective of whether they have a known family history.”
