Genomic Unity® Exome Analysis
The diagnostic odyssey for unexplained genetic disorders is a frustrating and costly process for patients and their families. Unnecessary delays in identifying the molecular cause of the symptoms result in potentially missed opportunities for changes in treatment for the patient as well as missed screening opportunities for family members.
Genomic Unity® Exome Analysis takes full advantage of the Genomic Unity® single platform method, providing a full, phenotypically driven analysis of small sequence changes in relevant genes and short tandem repeats expansions.
Order directly, or reflex up from one of the available targeted analyses.
Traditional practice advocates ordering this test when the patient exhibits phenotypes with significant genetic heterogeneity that are suggestive of multiple conditions or are otherwise unclear or atypical. Or when a specific genetic test is not available and/or prior genetic testing has been unsuccessful.
As conventional wisdom is evolving, this test can alternatively be ordered as the first line of diagnosis when a genetic etiology is suspected.

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