What is Adventia carrier screening?

Adventia is a new genetic test for carrier screening to determine whether a phenotypically healthy person is a carrier of a genetic disease. The genetic insight provided by Adventia can inform, guide and empower people on their reproductive choices and minimize the risk of people who are carriers transmitting a genetic disease to their children.

.Adventia panels

Focus panels –  Six individual panels for high frequency and severe genetic diseases:

  • A-Thalassemia,
  • B-Haemoglobinopathies,
  • Cystic Fibrosis,
  • Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy,
  • Fragile X,
  • Spinal Muscular Atrophy.

Guidelines Based panel – Single panel that detects 19 genetic diseases recommended by international genetic organizations like ACMG and ACOG* due to their high incidence and severity. The Guidelines Based panel includes all diseases tested in the Focus panels, and other diseases including Phenylketonuria, Fanconi Anemia Group C and Tay-Sachs disease.

Comprehensive panel – Single panel for 229 diseases that have moderate to severe, well-defined phenotype and high cumulative frequency. The Comprehensive panel includes all diseases of the Guidelines Based panel, and covers a wide range of metabolic, cardiovascular, haematological, muscular, immunological, neurological and pulmonary diseases amongst others.
