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.
