Additional information The Counsyl Foresightª Carrier Screen is a physician-prescribed DNA screen performed on a blood or saliva sample. This screen provides information about whether you are a carrier of an inherited disease, such as cystic fibrosis (CF), spinal muscular atrophy (SMA), and fragile X syndrome. A carrier is typically a healthy individual with no family history of the disease he/she is carrying. If parents are carriers of the same genetic condition their baby has a one in four chance of inheriting that disease.
