The mucus cells of a cystic fibrosis patient produce a thick and sticky fluid that damages the lungs and digestive system.

Attorneys for Scanson and Peters noted that both of those blood tests would have to be run before the lab doing the genetic testing would know which of the hundreds of mutations of cystic fibrosis to test for.
