Vantari Genetics

Discover the Inheritance You Can't See

Know Your Chances

While the genes we inherit from our family are the source of many of our best traits, they can also impact our health. Certain inherited conditions can increase our risk for cancer or other illness. You’ll learn through testing whether you have an inherited condition that places you at higher lifetime risk of cancer or other diseases. If testing reveals you’re a carrier, you can take charge of your health through proactive lifestyle changes and medical care.

Protect Your Family

Many people are healthy carriers, meaning they carry the genes for a disease but don’t show symptoms or have a family history of the condition. However, if you and your partner are both carriers of a genetic predisposition, your children have a 1 in 4 chance of being affected by the disease. Testing for your carrier status can help you and your partner plan and prepare.

If you’ve recently had a baby with a developmental disorder and don’t know the cause, genetics testing could provide you with the answer. Vantari’s inherited conditions test screens for more than 100 inherited health conditions that can be passed on from parent to child.

Common Reasons for Testing

Vantari testing can help you gather valuable information about your health and prepare for the future. Testing may be right for you if:

  • Preparing for a Family
    Before you begin planning a family, genetic testing allows you and your partner to evaluate inherited genetic risks. Such information empowers you to monitor your pregnancy and pay special attention to conditions for which you’re a carrier.
  • Peace of Mind
    Information gained from testing can alleviate unnecessary fears or help you take proactive steps toward health.
  • Personal or Family History
    Do you have a personal or family history of Cystic Fibrosis, blood clotting disorders, Spinal Muscular Atrophy or Fragile X? In conjunction with genetic counseling, testing can help you evaluate your children’s risk for inherited conditions.
  • Missing Information
    If you’re adopted or have gaps in your family history, inherited condition testing can provide information about conditions you may be predisposed to or conditions you may risk passing on to your children.
  • Ethnic background
    Certain ethnicities experience specific genetic conditions at higher rates. Examples include Tay-Sachs in people of Ashkenazi Jewish descent or sickle cell anemia among people of Afro-Caribbean descent.

How Testing Works

1 – Begin the Process

Like any diagnostic screening, inherited conditions testing must be authorized by a doctor.

2 – Collect DNA Sample

The inherited conditions test is performed through a simple, painless saliva sample. The sample is then sent to the lab for testing.

3 – Analyze Results

Our federally-certified lab analyzes your DNA for variations contributing to inherited conditions. Results are typically sent to your doctor within five to seven business days.

4 – Plan and Prepare

Many test results confirm non-carriers or healthy carriers. Even healthy carriers are encouraged to meet with a genetic counselor. This will enable you to make informed decisions in family planning. Knowledge is key to positive health outcomes.
