Mission Statement

To prevent genetic diseases by making high quality preconception genetic screening and counseling easy, convenient, and affordable to everyone.

Description

JScreen makes genetic carrier screening easy for diseases like Tay-Sachs, Sickle Cell Disease and Cystic Fibrosis. The JScreen test is saliva-based and uses new technology that ensures the highest possible carrier detection rates for the diseases on our panel - all for $99! Once someone registers on our website, www.JScreen.org, we mail a saliva kit straight to the person’s home and provide genetic counseling by phone to explain the results. Our goal is to make screening easily accessible, affordable and convenient, and to help couples plan for their families’ healthy futures.
