Genetic Carrier Screening

Genetic carrier screening is a type of genetic testing that is used to identify individuals who carry a genetic mutation that can cause a specific inherited disorder. This test is usually offered to couples pursuing IVF or to individuals who have a family history of a specific genetic disorder. The test is designed to identify individuals who carry a genetic mutation for a specific disorder, such as cystic fibrosis, Tay-Sachs, or sickle cell anemia, even if they do not have symptoms of the disorder themselves.

Why is Genetic Carrier Screening Important?

Carrier screening can help couples understand their risk of passing on a genetic disorder to their children. It can also identify individuals who are at risk of developing a disorder themselves, and they can take steps to manage or prevent it. This can help couples make informed decisions about their family planning and give them peace of mind.

How is Genetic Carrier Screening Performed?

The screening process typically involves a blood or saliva test, which analyzes the individual's DNA for specific genetic mutations associated with the disorder in question. The test results are usually available within 2 weeks.

Preimplantation Genetic Testing for Aneuploidies (PGT-A)

PGT-A is a test used to identify chromosomal abnormalities in embryos before they are implanted during an IVF cycle. This test can help couples reduce the risk of having a baby with chromosomal disorders, such as Down Syndrome, Turner Syndrome, or other chromosomal abnormalities. It can also be used for couples who have had recurrent pregnancy loss.

PGT-A allows patients and their physicians to select the healthiest embryo for transfer increasing chance of a successful pregnancy and a healthy baby.

What Our Patients Say About Us

RGI made our dreams come true! And Samantha’s gift of hope….there really aren’t words to express how they changed our lives. We won their grant in 2019 and it has continued to bless us several years later. Every time we make a financial decision I think of SGH and how I don’t know if it’d be possible if it wasn’t for them.
RGI and Samantha’s Gift of Hope has forever changed our lives in the best way possible because they have given us the greatest gift we could ever get—our sweet daughter. We have this joy of being parents we had previously only dreamed about, and honestly weren’t sure we would ever have. Now, everyday is filled with baby giggles and snuggles, cheering her on to her next milestone (which is currently crawling), and trying to be the best parents we can be. We will never be able to repay RGI and Samantha’s Gift of Hope, but we will forever be grateful to them and are daily reminded of it.
RGI made it possible for us to experience the joys of becoming parents. There is no greater feeling or love in this world that we’ve experienced than bringing Liam into this world. We truly understand the miracle and blessings babies are. SGOH we will forever feel grateful for. We cannot thank Lisa, Matt and Sam enough for their generosity and helping couples pay towards their IVF journeys. Honestly, SGOH really does provide HOPE. Winning the grant also helped us to feel like this is really happening, it’s meant to be.
Because of Samantha’s Gift of Hope, our dream of having a child came true. We could focus more on each step of the process and keep a positive attitude through it all instead of constantly worrying about what things cost and how we would make it work. Now, our sweet Tenley girl is 1 week old and I continue to be thankful each day for the opportunity Samantha’s Gift of Hope gave us. We are now living out our favorite roles as mom and dad and are filled with so much love for our little girl!
