This announcement positions Avrio Genetics as one of the world’s leading providers of genetic testing products.
According to the CDC, one in every 33 babies is born with a hereditary defect or condition. The vast majority of these conditions can be prevented through prior screenings of both parents. The CDC recommendations state that all women should be offered carrier screening for conditions such as cystic fibrosis, spinal muscular atrophy, sickle cell disease and thalassemia.
Avrio Genetics’ expanded screening services respond to these trends by offering carrier testing for the above-named diseases along with hundreds of others. The company uses two methods, genotyping and sequencing, to test for a wide spectrum of conditions.
The company recommends that for couples, the woman get tested first, and if she is found to be a carrier for a genetic condition, then her partner should be tested as well. Test results are typically returned within 3 weeks of the lab receiving the sample.
Prospective clients can request a carrier testing kit by filling out a short form on the company’s website. After submitting their enquiry, a representative will respond promptly to discuss their specific needs.
Founded in 2017, Avrio Genetics has quickly developed a strong reputation for its high-quality genetic testing products and services. With this update, the company reaffirms its commitment to providing those considering pregnancy with the knowledge they need to make reproductive decisions. In addition to providing carrier testing, the company also offers reproductive microbiome testing and endometrial receptivity tests, among others. The company’s website features helpful resources for clients, including nutrition information and educational articles.
A spokesperson for the company said: “Avrio Genetics Carrier Screening provides information that empowers planning or soon-to-be parents to make informed decisions for reproductive planning, and preparation for the birth of a child with a potential to have a genetic disorder or disease.”
