CGT is an advanced carrier genetic test before pregnancy, which determines whether a couple are carriers of genetic mutations that could be transmitted to their children.
It detects disorders such as Cystic Fibrosis, Spinal Muscular Atrophy, Fragile-X Syndrome amongst others by NGS.
Most carriers of genetic mutations don’t have a family history of these disorders.
(*) According to the World Health Organization (WHO)
The tested person carries a mutation in a particular gene. The test should be carried out in the other member of the couple.
A negative result indicates that the person doesn’t carry any of the mutations studied.
There is still a small risk of carrying another mutation not analyzed by the test.
