Genetic Carrier Screening

Genetic carrier screening gives individuals and couples information about their risk of having a child with a genetic condition.

It will tell you if you are a carrier for three common inherited conditions:

  1. Cystic Fibrosis (CF)
  2. Fragile X Syndrome (FXS)
  3. Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA)

Many people are carriers of Cystic Fibrosis, Fragile X Syndrome and Spinal Muscular Atrophy even though they do not have anybody in their family who has the condition.
