Jnetics offer carrier testing (sometimes called carrier screening) for 47 of the most severe recessive Jewish genetic disorders. This includes a range of Ashkenazi, Sephardi and Mizrahi conditions (optional testing for a 48th condition, Fragile-X, is offered as an option for female participants of the clinic only).
Please note – the carrier testing covers severe RECESSIVE disorders only and does NOT include the BRCA1 or BRCA2 genes. Find out more about BRCA testing by clicking here.
A full list of the disorders covered by Jnetics screening can be found here.
Carrier testing is an essential first step in ensuring you do not have a child in the future who is affected by one of these disorders.
To be eligible for screening, you only need one or more Jewish grandparent.
