GenePass Carrier Screening Overview

Carrier screening is a genetic test used to determine if a healthy person is a carrier of a single-gene disease, & if they are at risk of having an offspring affected by it. Most people do not know if they are a carrier for an inherited genetic disease until they have a child with the disease. LifeCell’s GenePass Carrier Screening test gives couples important information on reproductive risk and their chances of having a child with a genetic disease.

Who should consider the test?

Couples who:

  1. Are currently pregnant or planning a pregnancy
  2. Have a family history of a genetic disorder
  3. Would like additional information about the reproductive risks of having a child with a genetic disorder
  4. Are planning to donate eggs, sperm, or embryos
  5. Belong to a high-risk ethnic group
  6. Have a consanguineous partner

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. Carriers are typically healthy and do not have symptoms.
  2. Most of us are carriers of at least one genetic condition.
  3. For most diseases, both partners have to be carriers for the same condition for the child children to be at increased risk

An autosomal recessive disorder is a condition wherein both partners have to be carriers, to have a 25 per cent chance of passing it on to the child during each pregnancy. Most carriers for these conditions have absolutely no symptoms.

X-linked conditions involve mutations on the X-chromosome. In such conditions, only the mother has to be a carrier for the mutated gene in order for the child to be at risk of getting the condition.
