The flexibility of our services is based on the wide amount of sequencing data that we get for every patient. By performing always clinical exome sequencing (that is sequencing all the 6,000+ clinically relevant genes at once) we are able to look at every single gene within the blink of an eye (including those that might be of future relevance for the patient – see incidental findings).
Once sequencing is completed, based on the detailed clinical information of the patient, we can look straight at one particular gene (EXOME GENE) or panel of genes (EXOME PANEL). If these are negative, we can immediately activate the clinical and bioinformatic analysis of any additional gene or panel (ADD-ON GENE, ADD-ON PANEL). This methodology represents the most innovative and cost-effective approach to stepwise testing, because there is no need to pay (and wait) for additional lab runs if the first round of genes is negative: the sequences of all genes are just there to be read and interpreted. If the results keep on being negative, we can even upgrade the analysis to the study of all the remaining genes at once (UPGRADE TO EXOME 15MB).
All ADD-ONS come at very reasonable prices and with a turnaround time for the supplementary Medical Report of just three days:
ADD-ON GENE: TURN-AROUND TIME: 3 DAYS
ADD-ON PANEL: TURN-AROUND TIME: 3 DAYS
UPGRADE TO EXOME 15MB: TURN-AROUND TIME: 7 WORKING DAYS
Please note that, due to the different enrichment protocols utilized, EXOME DISCOVERY (6,000 genes) cannot be upgraded to EXOME 33MB or EXOME 50MB (20,000 genes).
