Comprehensive, actionable carrier screening
Horizon genetic carrier screening helps couples determine the risk of passing on serious genetic conditions to their child. It can be performed either before or during pregnancy.
What is carrier screening?
All of us are carriers of at least one genetic condition.1Most carriers are healthy with no family history, but they are at risk of passing on a genetic condition to their child. Carrier screening is a genetic test that identifies if you carry a gene with a change, or variant, that can impact your child.
When performed before conceiving, genetic carrier screening can provide actionable knowledge and the opportunity to pursue alternative reproductive options. Carrier screening during pregnancy can help couples decide on prenatal or infant diagnostic testing, and if necessary, help them prepare emotionally, medically, and financially for a baby affected by a genetic condition.
