Variant Interpretation:
What is the protocol for interpreting a variation as a VUS? Help
The PreventionGenetics protocol for interpreting sequence variants has been carefully developed over a period of 10 years. We are conservative in our interpretations. We do not label a variant as pathogenic or benign without conclusive evidence. Although we use a variety of software to assist us in interpretation, we rely … View more

Are family members with defined clinical status recruited to assess significance of VUS without charge? Help
Yes. Please visit our website for details at https://www.preventiongenetics.com/forms.php for Targeted variant tests.

Will the lab re-contact the ordering physician if variant interpretation changes? Help
Yes. Please visit our website for details http://preventiongenetics.com/

Technical Information
Test Procedure: Help
For PGxome® we use Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) technologies to cover the coding regions of targeted genes plus 10 bases of flanking non-coding DNA in all available transcripts along with other non-coding regions in which pathogenic variants have been identified at PreventionGenetics or reported elsewhere. As required, genomic DNA is … View more

Analytical Validity: Help
As of March 2016, 6.36 Mb of sequence (83 genes, 1557 exons) generated in our lab was compared between Sanger and NextGen methodologies. We detected no differences between the two methods. The comparison involved 6400 total sequence variants (differences from the reference sequences). Of these, 6144 were nucleotide substitutions and … View more
