Interested in having genetic carrier screening? Let us point you in the right direction.

Our long-term goal is to establish a free, easily-accessible reproductive genetic carrier screening service for all those who want it. In the meantime, genetic carrier screening is already widely available in Australia, but there are costs involved.

There are multiple companies that offer genetic carrier screening. Mackenzie’s Mission does not recommend one test over another, as the tests differ in cost, ease of access and the number of genetic conditions they test for. Below are some of the genetic carrier screening providers available in Australia.

People who are considering having genetic carrier screening should discuss available testing options with their healthcare provider, who can provide further information and guidance. Healthcare providers who can provide access to these tests include GPs, obstetricians and genetics health professionals, including private genetic counsellors.
