The Counsyl Foresight Carrier Screen is methodically designed to maximize at-risk couple detection for serious, clinically actionable, and prevalent diseases.
Counsyl Complete offers a comprehensive suite of support services designed to streamline and enhance practice workflow at every stage of genetic testing.
Elevate quality of care by offering expanded carrier screening to all patients regardless of family history or ethnicity.
The true goal of carrier screening is to detect at-risk couples of serious diseases. That’s why we’ve designed the Foresight Carrier Screen to maximize detection rates for the diseases that matter the most. Selecting a lab that enables you to offer the best test while streamlining the work associated with detecting more carriers allows you to confidently integrate expanded carrier screening into your practice.
Focusing on 175+ serious, clinically-actionable, and prevalent conditions ensures you are providing meaningful information to your patients.

Unmatched detection rates for the vast majority of genes on our panel means you can trust both positive and negative results.
Whether it’s automated results reporting and tracking, merged reports for couples, or on-demand genetic counseling, we support your practice where you need it.
175+ serious inherited conditions
Who to screen
Men and women planning to start a family
4mL blood, or saliva sample

The Foresight Carrier Screen is designed to maximize detection rates for the diseases that matter the most. Our experts evaluated >650 genes based on strict criteria in an effort to produce not simply more, but meaningful clinical information.Read more about our systematic panel design in Genetics in Medicine.
Full-exon sequencing provides a significant advantage over targeted sequencing.
Custom assays for prevalent, technically-challenging, difficult-to-sequence genes like 21-hydroxylase-deficient congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH) substantially boosts at-risk couple detection.
Panel-wide deletion calling with select duplication calling for certain prevalent conditions to further boost sensitivity.
Real-time curation combines automation with manual investigation to classify variants.Learn more about the Foresight Carrier Screen

We automate results delivery and follow up with patients to save your practice time.
Our board-certified genetic counselors are available on-demand for all patients to ensure results are understood.
Carrier screening is used to identify couples who are at risk of passing inherited disorders to their children. Traditionally, carrier screening has been offered to patients based on their ethnic background or family history.
However, this approach can miss couples at risk of having a pregnancy affected by a genetic disease.
In 2017, the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology (ACOG) recognized expanded carrier screening as an acceptable screening strategy. Offering ECS routinely, regardless of family history or reported ethnicity, improves outcomes for all patients.
In fact, the total risk of serious disorders identified through ECS is higher than the incidence of routinely screened for conditions.
