Innovative GIPCI Card predicts probability of Thalassemia, Sickle cell anemia in offspring, and does automated counselling of prospective parents.
Based on blood test result a GIPCI card is prepared for an individual. On matching male and female card, it can predict chances of disease in their children and do pre-marital counselling for them.
Prevention of Thalassemia and Sickle cell through genetic inheritance pattern identification, and counselling requires special skill. Due to non-availability or scarcity of marriage or genetic counsellor, non-prediction runs substantial risk of transmission of genetic disease in the next generation.
Thus, GIPCI card solves the problem by making it extremely easy for Health care workers, or person with minimum education, or for the prospective parent to identify the genetic pattern of inheritance and counselling on their own.
Superimpose cards of prospective couple and the card instantly displays the probability of disease transmission in their children and whether they can marry or not.
