In brief: Yes

Check with your rei specialist for details, but all ovum donors would be asked to report a detailed family history and would be tested for common recessive disorders, such as cystic fibroisis.
Many programs would also request more extensive testing including a panel of 100 such recessive diseases, including such problems as spinal muscular atrophy, the askenazi jewish panel, fragile x, & more.

Yes, i screen all egg donors for routine genetic screening as well as individualized screening depending of their personal, family, or ethic background.
This is commonly done by an egg donor program.
