This prenatal genetic testing panel can be used to identify carriers of hereditary conditions which occur more often in people of Jewish heritage from the eastern European area. About 1 in 4 people of Ashkenazi Jewish heritage are carriers for one of these genetic disorders. The Jewish Ancestry Reproductive Profile includes testing for Canavan Disease, Cystic Fibrosis profile and Tay-Sachs Disease. These conditions are more common of people with Jewish heritage but can still be found in other people.
This test is typically ordered by people who are planning to conceive to assess their risk of having a child with a hereditary disorder. Results from this test can help a person and their doctor to determine additional testing which may be necessary during pregnancy.
Turnaround time for the Jewish Ancestry Reproductive Profile is typically 7-10 business days.
Note: Result turn around times are an estimate and are not guaranteed. Our reference lab may need additional time due to weather, holidays, confirmation/repeat testing, or equipment maintenance.
Collected Monday thru Thursday only. This prenatal blood test has no fasting requirements.
This test is not appropriate for non-Ashkenazi Jewish individuals. This test may not detect carriers of rare variants of Tay-Sachs disease such as the B-1 variant or the activator protein deficiency.
