PreventionGenetics' Partnership with the Simons Foundation Autism Research Initiative
PreventionGenetics has partnered with the Simons Foundation Autism Research Initiative to perform clinical confirmations for variants identified in the largest autism research study known as SPARK. The goal of SPARK is to enroll over 50,000 families impacted by ASD to further understand the genetic mechanisms behind this condition. To learn more about SPARK, click here.
Because of this partnership, PreventionGenetics is at the forefront of autism genetics research. We use this knowledge and expertise to keep our gene lists for our autism and intellectual disability tests exceptionally current. We also offer custom panels which allow clients to choose their exact gene set. To learn more about our testing options, click here.

Comprehensive Hearing Loss Testing at PreventionGenetics
Hearing loss is one of the most frequent congenital anomalies, affecting up to 1 in 500 newborns worldwide (Sloan-Heggen, et al. 2016). While both genetic and environmental factors contribute to hearing loss, an estimated 80% of pre-lingual hearing loss is due to genetic causes. PreventionGenetics offers a comprehensive and flexible test menu for hearing loss. Our new 190-gene Hereditary Hearing Loss and Deafness Sequencing Panel with CNV Detection covers both sydromic and non-syndromic hearing loss.
