Medical Exome: Clinical Exome Sequencing, Additional Family Member
Test Code: 1738
Turnaround time: 2 to 4 weeks
CEN4GEN uses a molecular genomic-based platform for the analysis of the whole exome as part of a comprehensive diagnostic and carrier screen of genetic diseases. This test is for the analysis of an additional family member (affected or unaffected) to assist better diagnosing findings that have unclear significance.
