Variant Interpretation:
What is the protocol for interpreting a variation as a VUS? Help
Interpretation and classification of clinical significance of the detected variant are based on catalogued information from the NCBI ClinVar database (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/clinvar/variation/), LOVD database (http://databases.lovd.nl/ shared/genes/) and other locus specific databases as well as information from published literatures

Are family members with defined clinical status recruited to assess significance of VUS without charge? Help
Yes.

Will the lab re-contact the ordering physician if variant interpretation changes? Help

Analytical Validity: Help
sensitivity and analytical specificity depends on total amount of DNA present and this assay can detect approximately 20% of mutant in the background of wild type genomic data. our assay identified 15 V600E mutation samples from all 59 FFPE specimens and gave 100% sensitivity and 98% specificity of the assay: … View more
