Inheritest® Carrier Screen
A comprehensive family planning test that can tell if you and your partner are carriers for 110+ genetic disorders.
Knowledge is a powerful tool
The Inheritest® Carrier Screen, offered by Integrated Genetics, can provide you and your partner with information regarding risks of having a pregnancy affected with certain inherited disorders and allows you to make informed decisions for this and future pregnancies.
Inheritest® Carrier Screen
Clearly defined results for informed family planning.
Make peace of mind part of your family planning+ –
Carrier screening tests are for both men and women, and can be performed at any time—ideally, though, before pregnancy or within the first trimester. They can tell if you and your partner are carriers for genetic disorders (such as cystic fibrosis, spinal muscle atrophy, Tay-Sachs disease, and sickle cell disease), which can be passed down from parent to child.
Broadening your testing options+ –
With Inheritest®, we offer choice in carrier screening from tests screening for only one disorder to a comprehensive screen for more than 100. Ask your doctor which is right for you.
No test is perfect+ –
A negative result reduces, but does not completely eliminate, the risk of being a carrier of the genetic diseases included in the Inheritest® Carrier Screen. Screening cannot test for all mutations or all diseases. If it is determined that you are a carrier for one of the inherited disorders, you can speak to your doctor or genetics health professional about the implications of your result and appropriate testing for your partner. With the exception of X-linked diseases, since both parents must be carriers for the pregnancy to be at risk of the disease, the next step is to have your partner tested.

Inheritest® Carrier Screen
Comprehensive carrier screening for 114+ genetic disorders.
At Sequenom Laboratories, which is now a part of Integrated Genetics, we are pleased to introduce is an upgraded carrier screening test offered by Integrated Genetics, Inheritest® Carrier Screen by next generation sequencing (NGS).
The Inheritest® Carrier Screen test offers four panels—Comprehensive, Ashkenazi Jewish, Society Guided, and Core—and many single-gene tests for patients who may only want to screen for a specific disorder, such as cystic fibrosis or spinal muscular atrophy.
HerediT® UNIVERSAL Carrier Screening Test
Comprehensive and customizable screening.
Beyond NGS to deliver greater accuracy+ –
Inheritest Carrier Screen uses next-generation sequencing (NGS) to capture a broad spectrum of mutations, including rare variants, with Sanger sequencing run to confirm positive results and deliver optimal sensitivity and specificity.
Focused partner testing+ –
If your patient’s result is positive, Integrated Genetics can offer her partner full gene sequencing for any autosomal recessive gene in the Inheritest panels (except SMA, for which we offer partners SMN1 copy number analysis).
Full gene sequencing detects disease-causing variants as well as variants of uncertain significance, to identify a greater number of at-risk pregnancies.
Prenatal diagnosis+ –
Additionally, once an at-risk pregnancy is identified, we can perform mutation-specific prenatal diagnostic testing—for any of the disorders in the Inheritest panels—to deliver insights regarding the baby's condition.
Where some testing service providers are unable to offer single gene testing, VUS identification, or prenatal diagnosis—sometimes resulting in time-consuming retesting—Integrated Genetics offers a continuum of care for patients that can both save time and reduce anxiety.
