What is Horizon™ carrier screening?

Horizon screens your genes to see if you’re a carrier for up to 274 autosomal-recessive and X-linked genetic conditions. 

 

Why screen for inherited conditions?

It is common for people to be carriers of at least one genetic condition. Carriers are usually healthy; however, they have a risk of passing on a genetic condition to their children. Horizon can be ordered before or during pregnancy.

Conditions tested

We screen for 274 autosomal-recessive and X-linked genetic conditions, including:

  • Cystic Fibrosis – Horizon offers truly comprehensive screening of the cystic fibrosis gene via Next Generation Sequencing.
  • Fragile X – Horizon automatically detects AGG interruptions for select premutation carriers, further refining risk for an affected child
  • Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy – the most common form of muscular dystrophy affecting children
  • Hemoglobinopathies – including alpha thalassemia, beta thalassemia, and sickle-cell disease
  • Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA) – including enhanced SMA (2+0) screening which refines the chance to be a silent carrier
