What is HORIZON®
HORIZON® carrier screening is a simple test that checks to see if you are a carrier of one or more autosomal recessive or X-linked genetic conditions. Many people do not know they are carrier of an inherited genetic condition until they have an affected child. A carrier is usually healthy, but they have a risk of having a child affected with a specific condition.
HORIZON® Carrier Test can help you and your partner to know your risk of having a child affected by an inherited genetic disease.
You can have HORIZON® Carrier Test before or during pregnancy.
What does it mean to be a carrier?
A carrier of a genetic condition is someone who has a change (mutation) in one gene copy of a pair of genes. A carrier is usually healthy because the other copy of the genes works normally. Carriers do, however, have a risk of having a child affected with a specific condition.
HORIZON® Carrier Test is available in 5 screening panels and can screens for up to 274 genetic conditions.
