This is Mapmygenome’s comprehensive couple carrier screening test. Ideal for preconception screening, MatchMyGenome can be used to determine the carrier status of common recessive genetic disorders in both the partners to estimate the risk of disease in their future children. Reporting is as per guidelines set down by the American College of Medical Genetics (ACMG), and the report is supplemented with pre-test and post-test genetic counselling to further the value of the test for the customer. Over 2000+ genes associated with known autosomal recessive and X-linked recessive diseases can be analyzed for comprehensive carrier screening. Apart from the customers, this test also empowers health practitioners to be able to provide suitable reproductive counseling and options.
