01/01/2020 - Addition of the "custom gene panel" to the genomic's center test menu
We are now offering healthcare providers the option create a personalized gene sequencing panel for their patient. Working with the healthcare provider, we can generate a gene list that is targeted for the patient's condition. Gene lists can be generated by the ordering provider, clinical notes and phenotypic terms provided to the laboratory. We will working with the ordering provider to ensure the gene list is robust and suited to the individual before continuing with the analysis.
This flexibility allows providers to ensure all conditions on the patient's differential diagnosis can be included in a single assay, allowing for a rapid diagnosis.
This assay is ideal for a patient with a well established primary phenotype or has a clear differential diagnosis. If the primary complaint is not well known, or the differential diagnosis is vague, consider pursuing whole exome sequencing.
