Carrier Gene Test

Genetic carrier testing includes tests for the heterozygous status of a recessive inherited disorder in mothers and fathers who, although apparently healthy themselves, have a high risk of transmitting the genetic disorder to their offspring. Carrier testing allows couples of childbearing age to make informed reproductive decisions. Genetic carrier tests are used by people who have a family history of an inherited disorder or carrier ship, reproductive partners of carriers and partners of individuals who have the disorder. A prerequisite for knowledge about a possible risk for relatives and the availability of testing is the dissemination of information in the family. Carrier testing can also be offered as a screening test to persons who do not have an a prior increased risk of being a carrier based on their family history. With new genetic testing technologies, it is possible to screen for a growing number of disorders simultaneously.
