CLINICAL IMPLEMENTATION FOR PATIENTS
With Carrier DNA Screening, patients can gain knowledge on their risks of passing inheritable genetic diseases to their children or future children. A more comprehensive assessment can be obtained if both parents are tested.
MORE ABOUT CARRIER STATUS DNA SCREENING
Carrier Status DNA Screening can be ordered from a licensed and registered physician or other qualified healthcare provider.
Once your test has been ordered for you by a physician, you will provide a saliva sample using the saliva collection kit found in the Luminus Diagnostics box.
You or your authorized health care professional will mail your saliva sample back to Luminus Diagnostics, along with your test requisition and consent form (return shipping provided).
Typically within two to three weeks, your personalized results will be available to the ordering health care professional. The results will then be released to you. Luminus Diagnostics has a team of genetic counselors who are available to ensure that you understand the information in your report, and to answer any questions you may have about your results.
