The HerediT® UNIVERSAL Carrier Screening test is the most comprehensive test available to date, offering screening for more than 250 genetic disorders.

Even healthy individuals with no family history of a specific condition and previous healthy children may be a carrier of a genetic disease that can be passed on to their baby.

Carrier screening for certain conditions is recommended for consideration by all pregnant couples especially those with a family history of a genetic disorder or an increased risk for a condition based on ethnicity.

HerediT® UNIVERSAL Carrier Screening provides a comprehensive picture of your risk of having a child with a genetic disorder so you can plan for your family’s future with confidence.

While the results of the HerediT® UNIVERSAL test are highly accurate, discordant results may occur due to bone marrow transplantation, blood transfusions, or other causes. In some cases, genetic variations other than those being tested may interfere with mutation detection, resulting in false negative or false positive results. The test does not test for all forms of genetic disease, birth defects, and intellectual disability. All results should be interpreted in the context of family history; additional evaluation may be indicated based on a history of these conditions. Additional testing may be necessary to determine mutation phase in individuals identified to carry more than one mutation in the same gene. All mutations included within the genes assayed may not be detected, and additional testing may be appropriate for some individuals. A patient with a positive test result should be referred for genetic counseling and further evaluation.

TEST DETAILS

HerediT® UNIVERSAL Carrier Screening Test

Comprehensive and customizable screening.

Broadest screening available

+

The HerediT® UNIVERSAL Carrier Screening test is the most comprehensive test available to date, offering screening of more than 250 genetic disorders.

The HerediT® UNIVERSAL Carrier Screen tests for the most clinically relevant genetic conditions based on carrier rate, clinical severity, and availability of treatment options.

HerediT® UNIVERSAL Carrier Screening is offered in three ways to match testing needs. Order a comprehensive assessment for all 250+ genetic disorders, test only for disorders recommended by ACOG and ACMG, or focus your search with the Jewish Ancestry panel for the 65+ conditions common in at-risk populations.

While results of this testing are highly accurate, a negative result significantly reduces but does not eliminate the chance of being a carrier. The results of this testing, including the benefits and limitations, should be discussed with your patient. A patient with a positive test result should be referred for genetic counseling and further evaluation. The patient’s reproductive partner and at-risk family members may also be tested.
