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
PGxome 30 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.
