Universal Carrier Test provided by Counsyl is a noninvasive, saliva-based assay for more than 100 mostly autosomal recessive, Mendelian diseases offered to individuals or couples. InheriGen, GenPath tests for 164 autosomal recessive and X-linked inherited diseases, including Ashkenazi Jewish Diseases. InheriGen Plus, GenPath includes these 164 diseases and also screens for fragile X, spinal muscular atrophy, and cystic fibrosis carrier status.
The results of a genetic test may be affected by DNA rearrangements, blood transfusion, bone marrow transplantation, or rare sequence variations.
Results are provided for diseases and mutations tested on the panel. Diseases caused by repeat expansions (such as fragile X), sporadic deletions/duplications (such as Duchenne muscular dystrophy) may not included in the panel.
