Where did “Exome Plus” go?

Longtime customers familiar with our Genomic Unity® Exome Plus Analysis may be wondering where did it go?

The short answer is that it’s still available.

 

The “Exome Plus” referred to two components of the analysis:

  • A comprehensive analysis of the nuclear exome for small sequence changes (SNVs and indels), structural variants and tandem repeat expansions in >20 genes
  • Plus a comprehensive analysis of the mitochondrial genome for small sequence changes with ≥5% heteroplasmy (SNVs and indels) and large deletions

 

The components are now broken apart into two separate tests:

Genomic Unity® Exome Analysis: provides a comprehensive analysis of the nuclear exome for small sequence changes (SNVs and indels), structural variants and tandem repeat expansions in >20 genes

Genomic Unity® Mitochondrial Genome Analysis: provides a comprehensive analysis of the mitochondrial genome for small sequence changes with ≥5% (SNVs and indels) with heteroplasmy and large deletions

 

Why split the components apart?

A number of commercial insurance providers have recently revised their policies to explicitly not cover exome tests that include analysis of the mitochondrial genome. We have separated out our analysis of the mitochondrial genome from our analysis of the nuclear exome in order to continue to provide patients affected by these policies with access to our high quality exome test.
