Carrier Screening Report


Carrier Screening

Pathologies with recessive transmission, in order to manifest themselves, require that both copies of the gene (one of maternal origin and one of paternal origin) are mutated. The carriers of a single mutated gene are asymptomatic subjects unaware of having it. If, however, both subjects of the couple are carriers of the same mutated gene, there is a 25% chance, with each pregnancy, that a sick child will be born. Carrier screening is therefore an important tool for knowing one's carrier status.

More than 100 genes analyzed

It is recommended if:

This report is particularly suitable for couples who are planning a pregnancy and who want to have information on their possible carrier status. This awareness, in the event that both members of the couple have mutations on the same gene, facilitates the informed decision-making process, planning the best possible interventions and management strategies of a hypothetical pathological status transmitted to the offspring.

List of main conditions:

How will my data be used?

Your data is yours. Which is why we have developed proprietary software linked to a dedicated platform, the Genome Manager, to provide you with unique access to your data whenever you want, wherever you are.

How can my doctor use the results?

You will be provided with a digital version of the raw data and reports. Thanks to these in-depth tools, you will be able to share your preferred information with your geneticist and/or doctor to indicate and plan the healthiest course for you. 

How will I receive my reports?

The first thing to do when you receive your kit is to register it on your Genome Manager account. Dante's proprietary platform will keep you up-to-date on all stages of your genetic journey, providing you with the real-time status of your sample and where you can download your free report and raw data* at any time.

*Raw data will be available free of charge for the first 30 days after release.

How can I add other reports to my account?

At any time, you can log into your Genome Manager account and visit the Shop section. Here you will find a catalog with more than 150 additional reports dedicated to all areas of health. In addition, by subscribing to our newsletter you can always see new reports and panel updates.
