How does CarrierCheck work?

  1. After purchasing CarrierCheck, create a Sema4 account to provide your health history.
  2. A doctor reviews your health history information to confirm that CarrierCheck is appropriate for you. If your test request is not approved for any reason, you will not be charged.
  3. Helix sends a DNA kit to your home. Provide a saliva sample and mail the kit back.
  4. Helix sequences your entire exome at their lab. If this is the first product you have ordered from Helix, this will take about 6 to 10 weeks. You can track the status of your test online. Once your results are ready, you will receive an email.
  5. Schedule a consultation with a genetic counselor to learn more about your results.

  6. View, print, and share your customized results report online.
