Where can I get tested for Jewish genetic disorders (JGDs)?

By Masorti Judaism 19th Feb 2021

Jnetics is the only cross-communal provider for carrier screening for Jewish genetic disorders and Jnetics runs a bi-monthly clinic, in partnership with the NHS, based at Barnet Hospital, with virtual

appointments available for those outside London. Participants meet with a genetic counsellor who will answer any questions and carry out the screening.

Testing is done via a saliva sample and results are returned to you within 8-10 weeks.

The total cost for screening for 9 severe, recessive JGDs, including counselling services, is £190 (subsidised by Jnetics from the real cost of £250).
