We offer several options when ordering sequencing tests, including patient only testing, family testing (e.g. Duo, Trio) and Patient Plus. See individual test descriptions for available options.
For family testing and Patient Plus, we recommend sending in both biological parents with the patient’s specimen. For Patient Plus, sequencing is performed first on the patient’s specimen. Parental samples are then used for targeted testing of reported sequence variants and parental inheritance is included in the patient’s report. Parents are tested for all sequencing variants included in the patient’s report, except for CNVs. For the highest diagnostic rate, Family - Trio testing is recommended.
|Test Type||Specimens to Send||Requirements to Start Testing|
|Family - Duo, Trio, etc||Patient + 1 - 2 Biological Family Members (Parents Preferred)||All specimens are received with completed paperwork. Testing will be held up to 3 weeks for family member specimens. Testing can be held longer if there is an extenuating circumstance, and this information is provided on the paperwork.|
|Patient Plus||Patient + 1 - 2 Biological Parents||The patient specimen is received with completed paperwork, regardless of receipt of one or both parent specimens. If all specimens are not received by day 7 of testing, testing will continue and an updated patient report will be issued if parent(s) are received at a later date.|
|Patient Only||Patient||The patient specimen is received with completed paperwork.|
