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)
|NGS||PGnome and PGxome||5-7 weeks|
|STAT (PGnome, PGxome, Panels)||2 weeks*|
|Sanger||Full Gene and Targeted Variants||4 weeks|
|Repeat Expansions (Repeat Primed PCR)||3 weeks|
|aCGH||High Density Gene-Centric aCGH (Deletion/Duplication)||3 weeks|
|Chromosomal Microarray (CMA)||3 weeks|
* Rapid surcharge will not apply if report is delivered after 16 days and blood sample was submitted
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.
|Sanger||Full Gene and Targeted Variants||2 weeks|
|aCGH||High Density Gene-Centric aCGH (Deletion/Duplication)||2 weeks|
|Chromosomal Microarray (CMA)||1 week|
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.
