Why genetic testing is important

Genes are a wonderful, powerful thing. From eye colour to dimples – the genes we pass on influence how our children grow up.

We all carry gene variations, but when a partner or donor is a carrier of the same condition, there’s a 1 in 4 chance that your children could be affected by that condition.

It may be daunting, but knowing this risk can help you make empowered choices about how you plan your pregnancy, or even significantly reduce the risk of having a child affected by the condition.

Carrier screening delivered with care, convenience and compassion

Genetic carrier testing is for anyone who would like to have a family some day.

It tests you and your partner’s or donor’s DNA for variations that could cause a serious genetic condition in your child.

Eugene tests for conditions like cystic fibrosis, spinal muscular atrophy, kidney disease, and almost 300 more.

“Carrier screening unlocks one piece of that puzzle to help you understand your genetics, and empowers you to use that knowledge when preparing for your family.”
Stephanie Groube, Eugene Genetic Counsellor

We could talk about it all day.

But don't take our word for it. Australian women were waiting for this
You’ve made a complex and overwhelming test and all that involves seems less daunting especially given how you can explain things in everyday peoples terms. We’ve learnt a lot and I believe in turn we’ve educated so many of our family and friends on what’s available and the importance of testing, I only wish we had done it sooner.
Genetic Carrier Customer
We were unsure about genetic testing but so happy we were recommended to Eugene! The process was simple, everything was so easy to understand and Zoe explained everything with care and compassion. Highly recommended!
Genetic Carrier Customer
I highly recommend Eugene to anyone considering a pregnancy, whether you have already started your family or not. The information provided by this service allows you to understand your genetic health in a supported environment. Eugene is a true step forward in the accessibility and affordability of this type of testing. A+
