Panels and Screens
Clarity Genetics screens for up to 120 genetic disorders that can affect you, your baby, and your family's future. Most clients opt for a set of screens, called panels, that combine several individual screens for the most frequently occurring diseases or disorders. Scroll down for details on our panels or stand-alone screens.
The panels listed below were developed to meet the needs of unique groups. For the facts on each and downloadable brochures on panels, click the related link below. You should talk to your doctor about which screens align with your health, age, ancestry, and current needs.
Stand Alone Screens
A stand-alone screen can reveal your risks for passing an inheritable genetic disease or non-inheritable genetic condition to your child. Click for details on a specific disease or condition and to download its fact sheet.
Discovering Your Genetic Inheritance
Every cell in our body carries two sets of genes — a set from each parent (one from the mother's egg and one from the father's sperm). Genes are made up of chromosomes, which are made up of DNA. And by looking at your DNA, screening can reveal your risk for carrying and passing along a gene or a chromosomal abnormality to your child. Genes can be either "recessive" or "dominant." The charts below show the possible outcomes depending on the genes of the mother's egg and those from the father's sperm.
Recessive Genetic Disease
In order for carriers to pass on a recessive gene, both partners would have to be carriers of the same genetic disease.
Dominant Genetic Disease
