Carrier screening is for everyone, including healthy adults

  • Even if you're perfectly healthy, the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists recommends information about carrier screening be provided to all women who are pregnant or planning to become pregnant.

  • Here's why: 80% of babies born with a genetic condition are born to parents with no personal or family history. The Invitae genetic test checks to see whether you may pass something down to your child that you may not be aware of.

Let one of our genetic explain how it works

Most of us are carriers of at least one genetic condition, but usually both parents have to be carriers of the same condition for your children to be at increased risk. Here's Julia Wilkinson, M.S. You can also view a list of all the disorders we test for here.

Your Invitae carrier screen is also used by doctors.

It checks for 288 conditions that can be passed down through your genes such as cystic fibrosis, fragile X syndrome, and spinal muscular atrophy.

After you receive the results, one of our genetic experts will explain what they mean, answer any questions you may have, and talk about any next steps.

We accept HSA/FSA payments. Carrier screening is $250, and if your results indicate that your partner needs testing, too, his or her price is just $100. Learn more.
