InheriGen Pan-Ethnic Carrier Screening
What is InheriGen Pan-Ethnic Carrier Screening?
Carrier screening for hereditary genetic conditions is an important part of preconception and prenatal care. Historically, genetic carrier screening only covered single genes for specific ethnicities. According to the Census Bureau, by the year 2043 the majority of the US population will be so ethnically diverse that no single group will make up a majority. Thus, offering carrier screening based on a patient’s specific ethnicity is becoming increasingly more difficult. InheriGen carrier screening options perform carrier testing for multiple conditions at once, at a significantly lower cost than if each of these tests were run separately.
InheriGen Carrier Screening Panel Options
InheriGen Carrier Screening
The InheriGen Panel is comprised of over 180 hereditary diseases and more than 720 pathogenic variants tested from a single blood or oral rinse sample. These autosomal recessive and X-linked disorders are associated with childhood onset conditions, many of which are either lethal or have severe symptoms. It includes mutations chosen based on current ACMG and ACOG* recommendations as well as hundreds of variants selected through careful review of scientific literature and evaluation of clinical utility.
