CarrierMap is recommended for people who are planning a family or early in pregnancy.

Results from genetic testing can be complex and confusing. Recombine’s genetic counselors will help you navigate your personal results and discuss how they may impact your decisions.

For anyone taking CarrierMap, your results will tell you your carrier status for each condition screened. Carriers may have an increased chance of having a child affected with that specific genetic disease. Your genetic counselor will discuss the details of each condition that you carry in relation to your specific reproductive risk.

For anyone taking ChromoMap, your results will indicate whether the conditions tested for are likely to be present in your pregnancy. Based on these results, your genetic counselor and your doctor can then help determine what follow-up testing is most appropriate for you.

CarrierMap and ChromoMap search for the presence of many different genetic mutations and chromosome abnormalities, respectively. However, neither can look for every disease or reduce all risk. Your Recombine genetic counselor will ask you questions about your personal medical history as well as the medical history of your family members to determine if there are any additional health risks you may want to consider.

Once you have a firm understanding of your screening results and your family history has been discussed, your genetic counselor will review your follow-up options and help guide your next steps. A detailed letter summarizing your consultation will be sent to you and your doctor.

Your Recombine genetic counseling session is the perfect time to ask any questions you may have about genetic testing, results, and family history. Your genetic counselor is here to make sure you understand how your genetics may impact you and your family.

How it Works

  • Before the Test
  • Results Available
  • Speak to a Counselor
  • Follow Up

Recombine’s genetic counselors are available to answer any questions you might have about CarrierMap and ChromoMap, including who these tests are appropriate for and what kind of information they will provide. To speak with a genetic counselor before testing, please call 855-687-4363 ext. 4.

1-2 weeks after your CarrierMap sample is received at Recombine’s laboratory or 3-5 days after your ChromoMap sample is received at Recombine’s laboratory, you will receive an email notifying you that your results are ready and asking you to schedule an appointment with one of Recombine’s genetic counselors. If you do not receive this email, please call 855-687-4363 ext. 4.

Your genetic counseling session will be conducted over the phone and will likely take around 30-60 minutes. We offer weekend and evening availability to help accommodate any schedule. Try and choose a time where you can be somewhere quiet and private. If your partner had testing too, you may want to select a time where he or she can join the call as well, though this is not required.

During your genetic counseling appointment, the genetic counselor will go over your results, ask you questions about your family medical history, and discuss your risk of having a child affected with a genetic condition. You will also have the opportunity to ask any genetics or family planning questions you may have.

Within a week of your genetic counseling appointment, you and your doctor will receive an email with a copy of your results as well as a detailed letter summarizing everything you and your genetic counselor discussed. Your Recombine genetic counselor is always available for follow-up should you have additional questions that you didn’t ask during your call.
