We've Built a Bigger Cornelia de Lange Panel

Published on

We are excited to announce a new, 42 gene comprehensive panel for Cornelia de Lange Syndrome and Related Disorders. Because of genetic heterogeneity and phenotypic overlap, identifying the genetic cause of Cornelia de Lange Syndrome and Related Disorders is often challenging. This panel has been carefully designed to maximize clinical sensitivity and to achieve molecular diagnosis for Cornelia de Lange Syndrome and Related conditions.

Our PreventionGenetics' Family

Published on

Since PreventionGenetics was founded in 2004, the company has steadily expanded and is a market leader in clinical DNA testing, DNA banking, and research genomics.  This success is attributed to our hard working employees - our work family.

Although we consider all our employees to be a part of our family, some employees actually are biologically related.  Currently there are three sets of siblings employed at PreventionGenetics.  While some do not work directly together throughout the day, others do work very closely.  For these employees their co-worker is not just a friend, but a person with a bond that cannot be matched. 

You'll Heart our Updated Cardiology Panels

Published on

We are pleased to offer three new cardiology testing panels. Our comprehensive cardiology and pan cardiomyopathy panels are designed to cover a large number of inherited cardiac disorders, while the sudden cardiac arrest panel focuses on genes known to heighten risk for sudden cardiac arrest (SCA). In addition, we’ve increased the number of genes tested in many of our other panels to increase clinical sensitivity.

President's Corner - Genetic Penetrance

Published on

Penetrance may be defined as the fraction of patients with a specific genotype who are affected. Penetrance is critically important in variant interpretation and in reaching medical decisions. As just one example, prospective parents who receive a lab report indicating that their fetus carries an incompletely penetrant sequence variant will want to know the probability that their baby will be sick.

DNA Banking just got easier with at home saliva collection kits

Published on

We know that it’s not always easy to collect blood for DNA banking.  As a leader in DNA banking with over 20 years of experience, we are happy to now offer specialized saliva collection kits to simplify the process.
