Pricing Comments

Testing run on PG-select capture probes includes CNV analysis for the gene(s) on the panel but does not permit the optional add on of exome-wide CNV analysis. Any of the NGS platforms allow reflex to other clinically relevant genes, up to whole exome or whole genome sequencing depending upon the base platform selected for the initial test.

An additional 25% charge will be applied to STAT orders. STAT orders are prioritized throughout the testing process.

This test is also offered via a custom panel (click here) on our exome or genome backbone which permits the optional add on of exome-wide CNV or genome-wide SV analysis.

Turnaround Time

3 weeks on average for standard orders or 2 weeks on average for STAT orders.

Please note: Once the testing process begins, an Estimated Report Date (ERD) range will be displayed in the portal. This is the most accurate prediction of when your report will be complete and may differ from the average TAT published on our website. About 85% of our tests will be reported within or before the ERD range. We will notify you of significant delays or holds which will impact the ERD. Learn more about turnaround times here.

Clinical Features and Genetics

Clinical Features

Factor V deficiency (also known as Owren Disease and parahemophilia) is an inherited bleeding disorder with a broad spectrum of symptoms. Mucosal bleeding is the most common manifestation with menorrhagia, muscle hematoma, and hemarthroses present in smaller subsets of patients (Thalji et al 2013). Unlike hemophilia A and B, bleeding severity is not directly correlated to factor serum levels. Patients may be treated with antifibrinolytics or receive fresh frozen plasma infusions to mitigate symptoms (Shakhnovich et al. 2013). About a third of patients are asymptomatic until incursion of trauma or surgery. Factor V deficiency may also be acquired in rare cases with auto-inhibitory antibodies directed against FV protein (Lippi et al. 2011). Patients with other pathological conditions such as liver disease have been shown to have reduced FV levels (Thalji et al. 2013). Genetic testing is helpful in the differential diagnosis of congenital and acquired Factor V deficiency states.


Factor V deficiency is a rare autosomal recessive or compound heterozygous disease characterized by mutations in the F5 gene that affect males and females. To date, more than 200 different mutations have been documented as causative for the disease (Thalji et al. 2013). Missense mutations represent nearly 50% of causative alleles and are clustered to the A and C domains of the F5 gene and often affect secretion of FV protein (Montefusco et al. 2003; Chapla et al. 2011). Nonsense and splice site mutations leading to premature termination account for nearly 40% of Factor V deficiency (Delev et al. 2008; Cutler et al. 2010). Combined Factor V and VIII deficiency is phenotypically similar, but is due to causative mutations in the MCFD2 and LMAN1 genes (Peyvandi et al 2013). FV protein is part of the common coagulation pathway. Its activated form is an essential cofactor in the prothrombinase complex which is required to convert prothrombin to thrombin to promote clot formation.

Clinical Sensitivity - Sequencing with CNV PG-Select

About 95% of mutations in the F5 gene are detected through sequencing. If combined Factor V and VIII deficiency is ruled out, clinical sensitivity is predicted to be high as mutations in the F5 gene are the only known cause of congenital Factor V deficiency.

Testing Strategy

This test provides full coverage of all coding exons of the F5 gene, plus ~10 bases of flanking noncoding DNA. We define full coverage as >20X NGS reads or Sanger sequencing.

Indications for Test

This test is for individuals with symptoms and assays of hemostasis (prolonged PT and PPT) that suggest Factor V Deficiency. Ideal candidates have FV-specific PT assays indicating Factor V deficiency. Genetic testing is especially helpful in differential diagnosis of prolonged bleeding disorders. This test may also be considered for the reproductive partners of individuals who carry pathogenic variants in F5.
