Why screen with Foresight?

Screen for diseases that matter most

Bigger is not always better. Foresight’s carefully selected universal panel of 176 genes prioritizes clinical significance. These genes were selected based on associated condition severity, condition prevalence, clinical actionability of results, and detection sensitivity.

Detect at-risk couples with unmatched technology

Foresight offers the highest published at-risk couple detection rate for serious inherited conditions (1 in 22 couples)1 in our Universal panel. You can trust both positive and negative screening results – the detection rate for the vast majority of genes on our panel is over 99% across ethnicities.2

Test with a proven, trusted partner

Foresight is the only validated carrier screening panel in the US, backed by 20+ peer-reviewed publications and >900,000 patients screened.

Clear, actionable results to guide planning and care

Every Foresight Carrier Screen delivers a detailed report that includes test results, testing methodology, carrier results for each condition, and recommended next steps for patient care based on medical society guidelines.

For patients receiving a positive carrier result for one of the screened conditions, the Foresight report provides a comprehensive overview of the condition(s), the patient’s specific variant(s), and details about the screening methodology and interpretation. Positive carrier results also provide recommended next steps, which may include partner testing and/or genetic counseling.

Test results are typically available within two weeks of sample submission (blood or saliva).

Foresight Patient story

Meet the Pantier family

After screening with Foresight, Ashley and her husband discovered that they are both carriers of spinal muscular atrophy, also known as SMA. Knowing the Pantiers’ carrier status allowed physicians to diagnose their children faster and intervene quickly with time-sensitive treatment.
