Single-gene carrier screening
In addition to a comprehensive screening test for more than 500 genetic disorders (Inheritest), we also offer screening for specific disorders, such as spinal muscular atrophy (SMA), the most common inherited cause of early childhood mortality.1 With more than 600,000 tested samples, Integrated Genetics has been a leader in the field of SMA research and testing.
Because of the severity and relatively high carrier frequency, there has been increasing interest in carrier screening for SMA in the general prenatal population. “Screening for spinal muscular atrophy should be offered to all women who are considering pregnancy or are currently pregnant.” – ACOG Committee Opinion No. 691, March 2017.
