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.
|Method||TAT (Calendar Days)||Notes|
|NextGen Sequencing Panels||18 days||Includes panels, single gene requests and PGxome Custom Panels|
|Sanger Sequencing & Targeted variants||14 days|
|Prenatal Targeted Variants||8 days|
|STAT Sanger sequencing||8 days||If we are unable to complete STAT Sanger sequencing requests within 10 days, STAT surcharge will be waived.|
|Repeat Primed PCR Tests||12 days|
|Rapid PGxome||14 days|
|Neonatal Crisis Panel||14 days|
|ASD-ID Panel||30 days|
|Skeletal Disorders and Joint Problems Panel||30 days|
|Del/dup via aCGH or MLPA||20 days|
|STAT del/dup via aCGH||8 days||We will only charge STAT surcharge if testing is completed within 10 days.|
|Rapid Prenatal Chromosomal Microarray||6 days|
|Chromosomal Microarray||20 days|
We prioritize all testing related to ongoing pregnancies in order to get the results out as quickly as possible. Please alert us if your testing is for situations of extreme clinical urgency.
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.
