Everyone carries genetic mutations that have the potential to cause a disorder—even if there is no family history of the disorder. And sometimes, these genetic mutations are passed on to their children.
Carrier screening can be done at any time but is most useful before pregnancy or as early as possible during pregnancy. Early insight can help you better prepare for your family’s future.
If you’re pregnant or planning to become pregnant, Inheritest provides useful information about risks for certain genetic disorders and allows you to make informed decisions for a current or future pregnancy and ensure you have access to available treatments.
Inheritest is available in a variety of different panels. Click on each of the panels below to view the specific disorders for which each panel screens.
