Comprehensive Autism Spectrum Disorders and Intellectual Disability (ASD-ID) Genetic Testing
Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASDs) and Intellectual Disability (ID) are a heterogeneous group of neurodevelopmental disorders that are inherited in a multifactorial fashion. PreventionGenetics’ ASD-ID Comprehensive Panel is exome-based and allows for reflex to PGxome whole exome sequencing. The ASD-ID panel also includes exome-wide copy number variant (CNV) detection. This method allows for cost-effective identification and reporting of potentially important, large CNVs across the full exome in conjunction with any sequencing variants and/or smaller CNVs identified within the panel.
