The Beacon ACOG/ACMG panel screens for the most common genetic disorders seen within the general population. Carrier screening for these disorders have been recommended by the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) and the American College of Medical Genetics and Genomics (ACMG) for all pregnant women and women considering pregnancy.
The Beacon Ashkenazi Jewish carrier screening panel analyzes genes for pathogenic carrier variants known to cause recessive genetic disorders seen at high carrier frequencies within the Ashkenazi Jewish population as well as Fragile X Syndrome, hemoglobinopathies, and spinal muscular atrophy.
Fulgent understands that a large carrier screening panel is not right for everybody. The Beacon Focus Carrier Screening is the pan-ethnic screening panel that analyzes 30 genes for pathogenic mutations known to cause autosomal recessive and X-linked disorders seen at high carrier frequencies within the general population and within a few specific populations. The tested conditions vary in morbidity, mortality and treatment.
The Beacon Expanded Panel screens for more than 320 recessive and X-linked conditions that covers people of all ethnic backgrounds. Our lab receives samples from all over the world and since there are many diasporic communities in the United States, what may be rare to one person may be common to another. Most of the disease included in this have a significant impact on morbidity and mortality, or daily activities.
The Beacon Expanded Panel screens for more than 320 recessive and X-linked conditions that covers people of all ethnic backgrounds. All genes from the Beacon Expanded Carrier Screening panel are included with the addition of 9 “opt-in” genes that are associated with mild or adult-onset presentation of disease, but may be of interest to specific families or clinics.
