The expanded carrier screen offers hotspot molecular detection of variants for one X-linked and multiple autosomal recessive disorders at the same time and allows testing of individuals regardless of ancestry or geographic origin. Carrier screening aims to identify couples who have an increased risk of having an affected child in order to facilitate informed reproductive decision making. The expanded carrier screening panel (QHerit), analyzes 24 genes associated with 22 diseases, including: Alpha Thalassemia, Beta-Hemoglobinopathies (Including Sickle Cell Disease), Bloom Syndrome, Canavan Disease, Cystic Fibrosis (CFvantage), Dihydrolipoamide Dehydrogenase Deficiency, Familial Dysautonomia, Familial Hyperinsulinism, Fanconi Anemia Type C, Fragile X Syndrome, Gaucher Disease, Glycogen Storage Disease Type IA, Joubert Syndrome 2, Maple Syrup Urine Disease, Mucolipidosis Type IV, Nemaline Myopathy, Niemann-Pick Disease Type A, Spinal Muscular Atrophy, Tay-Sachs Disease, Usher Syndrome Type IF, Usher Syndrome Type IIIA, and Walker-Warburg Syndrome.
