Eugene’s carrier test is an at-home genetic test to see if you or your partner carry a gene variant that could cause a serious genetic condition in your child.
The common conditions we screen for include Cystic Fibrosis, Spinal Muscular Atrophy, Thalassemia, and Tay-Sach disease, but there are 780+ recessive and X-linked conditions that are screened in our comprehensive carrier test.

Our carrier screening genetic tests are saliva-based and easy to do at home.

Some tests have options for individuals, couples and donors, and some are covered by Medicare.
