Cystic fibrosis (CF) is the most common recessive lethal genetic disorder affecting primarily Caucasians of Northern European descent, with an incidence of approximately 1 in 3300 births and a carrier rate of 1 in 29. This test analyzes approximately 1000 variants that account for greater than 98% of disease causing variants. This test is only appropriate when there is a strong likelihood of cystic fibrosis and the variant is not detected in the general cystic fibrosis variant panel and familial variants are unknown.
