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:
- Cystic Fibrosis (CF)
- Fragile X Syndrome (FXS)
- 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.
