Carrier screening research provides genetic data insights that are used to identify the most promising reproductive options. Until recently, the practice has been restricted to a limited number of single-gene tests offered mainly to study higher-risk individuals or populations. However, the landscape of carrier screening research and its role in reproductive health is changing fast.
As our society becomes more interconnected and culturally diverse, racial and ethnic distinctions are becoming blurred, making it more difficult to define who is at risk. At the same time, remarkable technological advances are converging in a way that is rapidly transforming our knowledge of the many genes and variants underlying inheritable diseases.
With Thermo Fisher Scientific's high-density microarray research solutions, hundreds of disorders can now be studied at once using a single sample, opening the possibility of more comprehensive and universal carrier screening research. Thermo Fisher Scientific helps you carry out studies in your lab with outstanding data insights.
