The SensiGene CF Carrier Screening Test

Because of the increased difficulty in assigning a single ethnicity to an individual, expanded CF panels can provide increased sensitivity for CF carrier screening for many individuals. Having a more comprehensive mutation panel is important as 1 in 17 CF carriers may be missed using a standard ACMG 23 CF carrier screening panel.
