DNA Banking just got easier. Patients can now order and submit payment online in a few easy steps. Providers can also assist their patients with banking and receive confirmation when the process is complete. No more worrying about lost or incomplete paperwork, or tracking down payments. The online ordering system collects all required information for DNA banking, including specimen kit selection. Depositors have the choice to receive either a blood or saliva kit. Other specimen types are also accepted for DNA banking, but kits are not provided (see acceptable specimen types for more details). Get started today.

Expanded testing options for PGxome and large PGxome-based tests
PreventionGenetics is excited to announce the addition of Patient Plus for PGxomeⓇ and large exome-based tests - Autism Spectrum Disorders and Intellectual Disability panel and Neonatal Crisis panel. Patient Plus involves sequencing and copy number variant (CNV) analysis of the patient, and then use of the parental specimens to perform targeted testing for the key sequence variants found in the patient. This approach permits detection of de novo variants and phasing of variants in recessive genes.
PreventionGenetics’ Neonatal Crisis panel is a unique ~1,200 gene panel designed for critically ill neonatal and pediatric patients. The panel includes sequencing and copy number variation detection as well as an accelerated turnaround time. The panel has yielded ~17% clear positive results.
