Fragile X screening with HorizonTM
Fragile X syndrome is the most common inherited cause of intellectual disability. For some, fragile X causes a mild intellectual disability. For others, it can manifest as autism.
Carrier screening for fragile X can identify at-risk pregnancies and help diagnose unexplained carrier symptoms, like infertility. Horizon assesses fragile X risk more accurately than typical screens. Learn more in our webinar.
