Genetic Carrier
 

Genetic carrier is an individual who carries and is capable of passing on a genetic variant associated with a disease and may or may not display disease symptoms.






 



 


Most people do not know they are carriers until after they are screened  or have an affected child, because carriers may not have symptoms.











 

What is CarrierCheck?










CarrierCheck is a genetic test to determine whether a person is a carrier of a recessive genetic disorder by using peripheral blood. It provides information about a couple’s risk of having a child with a recessive inherited disorder, facilitating reproductive choices for those at a high risk of having an affected child.

















 

What does CarrierCheck screen for?

CarrierCheck screens for ~100 of the most common genetic disorders for both autosomal recessive and X-linked recessive inheritance, including Fragile X Syndrome, Thalassaemia, Cystic Fibrosis, Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD), Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA), Phenylketonuria (PKU) and etc.
