A Comprehensive GenePass Carrier Screening Panel

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?

  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
