Methodology

How is a carrier screening performed?

Results

POSITIVE +

NEGATIVE -

The tested person carries a mutation in a particular gene. The test should be carried out in the other member of the couple.

A negative result indicates that the person doesn’t carry any of the mutations studied.
There is still a small risk of carrying another mutation not analyzed by the test.
