Carrier screening for California Cryobank clients
Sema4 Expanded Carrier Screen is a comprehensive and accurate genetic test used to screen
California Cryobank sperm donors.
Most carriers do not experience any health problems due to being a carrier. Offspring of carriers are usually not at risk to be affected by an autosomal recessive* condition unless both biological parents are carriers of the same condition.
Discover your carrier status
Sema4 Expanded Carrier Screen provides insight into your carrier status for more than 280 inherited diseases, including cystic fibrosis, spinal muscular atrophy, and Fragile X syndrome. Just a simple blood or saliva sample is required.
To get started, talk to your doctor about carrier screening. Please print out this requisition form to share with your doctor. You can also request a carrier screening kit by filling out the Sema4 customer support form.
Carrier screening is covered by most insurance plans
Copays, co-insurance, and/or deductibles may vary by health plan. To learn more, please contact Sema4 billing specialists at 1-800-298-6470 or your insurance provider by calling the number on the back of your insurance card.
*The risks for carriers of X-linked recessive disorders differ depending upon the sex of the carrier parent and the sex of the offspring. Sperm donor applicants are not eligible to be in California Cryobank’s sperm donor program if they are identified to be carriers for X-linked disorders.
