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 average TATs by method based on the calendar days from when the specimen and completed order are received.
POSTNATAL Turnaround Times (TAT)
|Method||Test||Avg TAT (days)||Avg STAT/Rapid TAT (days)|
|NGS||PGnome and PGxome||28||13
Rapid surcharge will not apply if report is delivered after 16 days.
|Neonatal Crisis Panel||N/A||13|
|Panels||18 for panels, single gene requests & Custom Panels 28 for most panels with >300 genes. See individual test descriptions for specific TAT.||13 25% STAT surcharge will not apply if report is delivered after 16 days.|
|Sanger||Full Gene and Targeted Variants||12||8 25% STAT surcharge will not apply if report is delivered after 10 days.|
|Repeat Expansions (Repeat Primed PCR)||12||8 25% STAT surcharge will not apply if report is delivered after 10 days.|
|aCGH||High Density Gene-Centric aCGH (Deletion/Duplication)||20||8 25% STAT surcharge will not apply if report is delivered after 10 days.|
|Chromosomal Microarray (CMA)||20||6|
|MLPA||Deletion/Duplication||20||14 25% STAT surcharge will not apply if report is delivered after 16 days.|
Prenatal Turnaround Times (TAT)
See our Prenatal Policy to verify the clinical situation meets our testing policy. Prenatal TAT refers to testing ongoing pregnancies. Non-ongoing pregnancy TAT is reflected in the Postnatal TAT chart.
All tests for ongoing pregnancies are treated as high priority specimens.
|Method||Test||Avg TAT (days)|
|Sanger||Full Gene and Targeted Variants||8|
|Repeat Expansions (Repeat Primed PCR) Most tests are not validated on prenatal specimens. See individual test descriptions or contact us.||8|
|aCGH||High Density Gene-Centric aCGH (Deletion/Duplication)||8|
|Rapid Prenatal Chromosomal Microarray (CMA)||6|
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.
