What are the different types of Genetic Testing?
Presymptomatic & Predictive testing: If there is a family history of a genetic condition, undergoing genetic testing may show if there is a risk of developing that particular condition.
Diagnostic testing: Genetic testing can identify a suspected disorder if you have symptoms of a disease that may be caused by genetic alterations.
Carrier testing: If there is a family history of a genetic disorder or if you belong to an ethnic group with a high risk of particular genetic disorders, undergoing a carrier screening test is recommended.
Prenatal testing: For pregnant women, genetic tests are available, such as prenatal screening for chromosomal abnormalities, that can detect different types of abnormalities in their unborn baby’s genes.
Newborn screening: This is one of the most important and common types of genetic testing. It is required that newborns get tested for certain gene abnormalities so that care and treatment can begin right away.
Preimplantation testing or Preimplantation genetic diagnosis: This type of testing is used for when you attempt to conceive a child through in vitro fertilization. The embryos are screened for genetic abnormalities and embryos without abnormalities are implanted in the uterus.
