Familial variant testing
Familial variant testing is available for variants identified in the proband by prior Variantyx testing.
Familial variant testing will be performed at no additional charge for those cases where we determine that testing of family members has the potential to provide additional information relevant to variant classification.
For all other cases, familial variant testing is available for a fee:
The request for no-charge reanalysis may be made at any time, however, we recommend waiting at least one year. Variantyx updates databases quarterly and therefore requesting reanalysis sooner is less likely to yield different results. If there have been significant changes in the patient’s clinical presentation it may be appropriate to request the no-charge reanalysis sooner.
Ordering clinicians may request additional reanalyses which will be performed for a fee. Please contact us for pricing.
- Findings in the set of 73 genes recommended by the American College of Medical Genetics and Genomics (ACMG)
- Findings in other genes
More information about both sets of genes is available here.
