Genomic Unity® DMD Gene Analysis

Test Description

Genomic Unity® DMD Analysis uses a whole genome sequencing platform to diagnose genetic causes of Duchenne and Becker muscular dystrophy in the DMD gene.

When to Order

Order this test when the patient presents with symptoms of muscle weakness consistent with Duchenne muscular dystrophy or Becker muscular dystrophy and you’d like the option to reflex up to Genomic Unity® Whole Genome Analysis.

For a broader analysis of genes associated with additional muscular dystrophies (Duchenne and Becker muscular dystrophy, Emery-Dreifuss muscular dystrophy, Limb-Girdle muscular dystrophy, Ullrich congenital muscular dystrophy, Walker-Warburg syndrome and other congenital muscular dystrophies), you may want to consider ordering Genomic Unity® Muscular Dystrophy Analysis.

Included Analyses

  • Sequencing analysis of the DMD gene
  • Deletion/duplication analysis of the DMD gene

Optionally includes:

Included Genes


This test covers the following disorders:

  • Becker muscular dystrophy
  • Duchenne muscular dystrophy
