Genomic Unity® Exome Analysis
Test Code – CP002
The diagnostic odyssey for unexplained genetic disorders is a frustrating and costly process for patients and their families. Potentially unnecessary delays identifying the molecular cause of a person’s symptoms may result in missed opportunities for changes in treatment and limit inheritance information for family members.
The exome makes up approximately 1%-2% of the human genome; however, 85% of disease causing variants can be found in the exome. Genomic Unity® Exome Analysis takes full advantage of the Genomic Unity® single platform method, providing a full analysis driven by a person’s clinical features of small sequence changes and short tandem repeats expansions in relevant genes.
Include family member samples for a duo or trio. Order directly, or reflex up from one of the available targeted Analyses.
When to order
Order this test when clinical symptoms can be caused by a wide variety of genes or genetic mechanisms, are suggestive of multiple conditions, are atypical for a certain condition, do not have specific diagnostic genetic test available, or have had previous non-diagnostic genetic testing.

Short tandem repeats:
Due to the variable nature of repetitive sequences and sequence-specific differences in detection and repeat evaluation, orthogonal confirmation is performed on a case-by-case basis. Reportable pathogenic or intermediate repeat expansions may be reported with or without repeat count.
