Genetic carrier screening gives individuals and couples information about their chance of having a child with an inherited genetic condition, such as cystic fibrosis. Cystic fibrosis mainly affects the lungs and is one of the most common inherited conditions in the general population.

Carrier screening gives individuals and couples information about their chance of having a child with an inherited genetic condition: specifically cystic fibrosis (CF), fragile X syndrome (FXS) or spinal muscular atrophy (SMA). These three genetic conditions have serious health consequences and are some of the most common inherited conditions in the general population.

Our 'reproductive genetic carrier screen' (RGCS) has changed names and is now known as prepairTM.

The prepairTM genetic carrier screen gives individuals and couples information about their chance of having a child with cystic fibrosis (CF), fragile X syndrome (FXS) or spinal muscular atrophy (SMA). Regardless of family history, couples should be offered information about carrier screening before pregnancy. Awareness of carrier status prior to conception gives couples greater reproductive choice.
