CARRIER Screening Family Planning
When you plan for
a new family
you need certainty
Everyone should have access to a genetic screening before conception.
We all carry two copies of all our genes; one is inherited from our mother while the second one comes from our father.
You are a CARRIER of a genetic condition if one of those 2 copies is altered; that gene alteration could be passed down to a future child.
Carriers are healthy and do not experience symptoms. Most of us are carriers of at last one genetic condition without being aware of it.
In most cases, if both parents are carriers of the same genetic alteration, then there is a risk that any of their future children will be affected by that genetic condition.
More than 80% of children with a genetic disorder are born to parents with no family history or symptoms of the disorder (1).
Carrier screening will inform you, your partner and your doctor if you are at risk in a future pregnancy.
This risk CAN be EASILY avoided by In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) and Preimplantation Genetic Testing (PGT) when you can choose unaffected embryos.
Certainty in health in paramount. Regardless of whether the conception is natural or in an IVF laboratory, you want answers.
THAI StemLife’s COMPREHENSIVE CARRIER screening in over 300 genetic conditions, including all recommended by American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology (ACOG) and American College of Medical Genetics (ACMG) for all ethnic populations can be available for you.
It will provide all the insight you need to make informed decisions and prepare for tomorrow. The turnaround time is no longer than
10-21 days, at a CAP and CLIA accredited genetics laboratory in the US and it will provide an answer to the question:
what genetic conditions might I transmit to my future children?
Full gene sequencing
with deletion and duplication analysis leading to a 99% detection
rate for most genes.
Severe and prevalent disorders
across all ethnicities.
Enhanced SMA testing
to help identify
no reporting for variants of unknown significance.
There is no more complete test at this moment. If by any chance both of you are carriers of the same genetic condition (e.g. Thalassemia or Cystic Fibrosis to name some conditions), then there is no reason for despair. Our Preimplantation Genetic Testing (PGT) by Superior ART will make sure that your future child is FREE from any genetic condition. Our successes have been published internationally. If your family has already a child with a genetic condition or a childhood cancer treatable by stem cell transplantation, again, do not despair. Contact us for a PGT-HLA (for genetic conditions) or only HLA genetic matching. This means that it is possible to have a second child that is free of the genetic conditions that affects the older child and at the same time be HLA-compatible (meaning the tissue type of the new sibling will be an EXACT MATCH of the affected older child). At birth of the second sibling, his/her cord blood stem cells will be collected and used at a later date for a CURATIVE stem cell transplantation of the affected sibling! See here our international publications about our success in curing Thalassemia in 12 affected siblings! (click).
There is no justification for taking any risks when this INDISPUTABLE genetic knowledge is available before any decision to plan for your new and healthy family. Ask us.
