DNA Carrier Screening

We are proud to offer our patients the Preparent™ Carrier Screen from Progenity.

If you’re thinking about starting a family, you probably want to do everything you can to prepare. The Preparent™ Carrier Screen provides a closer look at your genes, to see if you are at risk of passing a hereditary genetic disorder to your child. Knowing your genetic carrier status is one of the most important things you can do to prepare for parenthood.

Couples who learn about their carrier status before conception can take steps to build a healthy family. There are a number of potential choices to consider. Some couples become pregnant naturally, with or without prenatal diagnosis. Some pursue in vitro fertilization (IVF), using a diagnostic test to help select healthy embryos for implantation. Others use donor eggs or sperm from a person who is not a carrier. Some couples choose to adopt a child. A genetic counselor can discuss these options in greater detail.

Preparent™ screens for 29 genetic disorders.  For more in-depth information about DNA Carrier Screening, go to Progenity.com.
