Carrier Testing

Claro Labs helps bring science and technology to provide specialized testing for carrier diseases. Working in conjunction with your team, Claro helps your patients uncover their health-risk horizon to determine if they may be a carrier before or during their pregnancy.

 

How Does Carrier Disease work?

Expanded carrier screening now enables all couples, regardless of their ethnic or geographical profile, to test for a broad array of genetic conditions before conceiving. It can screen for the carrier gene of hundreds of diseases, giving you the power of knowing whether you and your partner are at risk of passing along any of these genetic conditions to a baby you conceive together.

ACOG has specific recommendations for which disorders practitioners should include in an expanded carrier panel. Conditions should occur in at least 1 in 100 people, reduce the quality of life, impair cognitive or physical abilities, require surgical or medical intervention, and have an onset in childhood. Here are a few of the most common diseases expanded carrier screenings test for:

  • Alpha-Thalassemia
  • Beta-Thalassemia
  • Cystic Fibrosis
  • Familial Hyperinsulinism
  • Fanconi Anemia Group C
  • Fragile X Syndrome
  • Gaucher Disease
  • Glycogen Storage Disease Type 1a
  • Maple Syrup Urine Disease Type 1A/1B
  • Neimann-Pick Disease Type A/B
  • Sickle Cell Disease
  • Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA)
  • Tay-Sachs Disease
