WHAT is NewbornGeneID
Approximately 80% of all recessive diseases occur in families with no known family history
Studies have shown that the likelihood of being a carrier for an inherited genetic disease is as high as 1 in 4 for some populations
The NewbornGeneID test is non-invasive, using a simple mouth wash and cheek swab for sample collection
Most insurances cover carrier testing for all people of reproductive age
In populations where testing is the norm, disease occurrence has been reduced by as much as 90%

There is value in testing All individuals that plan on having children. Knowledge and prevention are the best way for your patients to make educated decisions about their options. Our Test is a comprehensive preconception and prenatal carrier screening test that follows the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) recommendations.

Testing is especially important in populations that are at higher risk. These populations include, but are not limited to:
African or African American
