The Mount Sinai Genetic Testing Laboratory has announced a partnership with Counsyl to expand options for prospective parents, for preconception and prenatal genetic screening for a greater number of recessive diseases. New tests developed by Counsyl. This new partnership between Mount Sinai and Counsyl will facilitate access to carrier screening for many more recessive genetic diseases and some of the more common X-linked diseases, so that couples can learn about potential risks at the pre-pregnancy stage to inform reproductive decision-making. Mount Sinai offers prenatal diagnostic testing in combination with on-site expert genetic counseling, thus providing a comprehensive and convenient service for patients and providers Mount Sinai also provides additional prenatal testing on site, such as rapid 24-hour aneuploidy fluorescent in situ hybridization (FISH) testing, chromosome analysis, and array- comparative genomic hybridization. Mount Sinai's genetic testing laboratory, part of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, already offers a comprehensive set of screening options for more than 100 disorders, including a cystic fibrosis mutation panel, spinal muscular atrophy test, Tay-Sachs enzyme analysis, and an expanded Ashkenazi Jewish panel. The lab has been a leader in carrier screening for Ashkenazi Jewish genetic disorders and was the first to offer carrier screening for Walker-Warburg Syndrome in this population.
