About Carrier Screening:
The goal of carrier screening is to detect couples who are at risk of passing down serious inherited conditions.
Universal carrier screening for cystic fibrosis and spinal muscular atrophy is recommended by American College of Medical Genetics (ACMG) and American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists. (ACOG).1,2
