How does the ethnicity that my provider indicated impact my Foresight® Carrier Screen?

For the Foresight® Carrier Screen. ethnicity is important because the chance you are a carrier for a specific condition and our disease-specific detection rates differ based on your ethnicity. There are certain conditions where ethnicity is important to determine whether you are a carrier or an “uncertain carrier.” Ethnicity does not change your genetic results, but it can change the interpretation of your results and your residual risk to be a carrier. 

If you’d like to update the ethnicity on your report, please contact your ordering provider with your request. Change order requests must be submitted in writing by your ordering provider.
