Turnaround Time (TAT)

At PreventionGenetics, we value the patient's need for fast turnaround time (TAT). We are continuously implementing process improvements that decrease TAT yet maintain the high quality you have come to expect from PreventionGenetics.

Shown below are our current TATs by method based on the average calendar days from when the specimen is received in our laboratory.

In cases where we experience technical difficulties with specimen performance or determine that additional chemistries are needed to clarify results, our TAT may be extended to ensure that we get the test right. At PreventionGenetics, we do not sacrifice quality for the sake of TAT.
