As a first step in family planning, Prenatal Carrier Preventive Screening can help detect an increased risk of specific inherited disorders in babies.
This screening is done either prior to conceiving or within the first trimester of pregnancy. Understanding testing options will help prepare you for future health and hereditary genetic predispositions. Moreover, these results will also be true for following generations.
At PathemaGx, we offer genetic-carrier testing for single disorders as well as comprehensive testing for multiple disorders.
