Genetic carrier screening

Background: The human body consists of many things among them cells. The cells are a bit like pieces of lego that are used to build the body. Each cell has a nucleus, a core. In the nucleus, we can find the DNA organised in chromosomes. DNA decides and influences a lot of things. A gene is a piece of the DNA that codes for a function in the body, for example eye colour.
To get blue eyes you need to get one gene from both your biological parents that codes for blue eyes. When you need two genes for something it is called a recessive gene.
To get brown eyes you need one gene for brown eyes from one biological parent. In comparison to the gene for blue eyes, this means that the brown eye gene is dominant.
The test: We offer testing for recessive diseases that are interesting specifically for you, for example, if you have relatives with cystic fibrosis or other recessive diseases.
How is the test performed: Common (venous) blood sample
Price: Price offer will be given when interest is shown since the price varies depending on what to analyse.
