QHerit™ screening is easy and safe
Screening can be a choice for anyone, regardless of their ethnic background, and takes 4 simple steps:
- You simply have blood drawn, either at your doctor’s office, or at a conveniently located Quest Diagnostics Patient Service Center
- The sample will be sent to a Quest Diagnostics lab for testing
- Your doctor will give you your results in one to two weeks
- If your results come back telling you that you are a carrier for a disorder, your doctor will request similar blood draws from your partner for more genetic screening
These results will help you and your partner better understand your risks, and make more informed plans for the future.
