The Family Prep Screen looks at hundreds to thousands of critical changes within your DNA, known as mutations. A positive result means that you are a carrier of a genetic disease. Carriers are typically healthy and unaware of the mutation within their bodies. If two people are carriers of the same disease, they can give birth to an affected child.      www.counsyl.com/services/family-prep-screen/carrier-screening/
