Single-gene screening

ALL SINGLE-GENE

Focused screening for specific disorders

While we offer a more comprehensive test—Inheritest®, that can screen for more than 110 clinically significant genetic disorders—some people choose to investigate their carrier status for a specific disorder instead of pursuing a wider screen.

To accommodate these specific requests, Integrated Genetics offers single-gene screening in addition to the expanded carrier screening panels.

Most common single-gene screens

Cystic fibrosis

Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a genetic disorder that can lead to life-threatening lung infections, and it can occur in any ethnic background. Determine if you’re at increased risk for having a child with CF.​

Spinal muscular atrophy (SMA)

Spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) is a hereditary disorder that destroys nerves, and the leading genetic cause of infant death.1 You could be a carrier even if no one in your family has SMA.​

Fragile X syndrome

Fragile X syndrome is the most common cause of inherited intellectual disability, affecting approximately 1 in 4,000 males and 1 in 8,000 females.2 In addition to carrier screening, we offer both prenatal and pediatric diagnostic testing.​

Other testing options

In addition to carrier screening, we also offer: noninvasive prenatal testing (NIPT) and serum screening for Down syndrome and other conditions; diagnostic testing options for post-pregnancy or further confirmation of screening tests; and hereditary cancer screening.

If you’ve not had a test and have questions about costs or coverage, use our estimator.

If you have already had a test performed, we can help answer questions about results.

Ask questions about genetic testing options or results, or schedule an appointment.
