Test purpose: Help
Drug Response
Clinical validity: Help
All drugs are metabolized to some extent in the human body. Nearly all of the enzymes and transporters involved in drug metabolism are known to contain genetic polymorphisms across the human population. Some of these polymorphisms are known to contribute to altered function and subsequent altered drug metabolism. Therefore, determination … View more

Technical Information
Test Procedure: Help
Buccal swabs are used as the specimen type. Genomic DNA is extracted from buccal swabs using an ABI magnetic particle processor (MagMAX). Purified DNA is then quantified using qPCR. Microarray analysis is then performed using the Illumina Global Screening Array v3 (w/DTC booster) beadchip and the Illumina iScan. CYP2D6 copy … View more

Test performance comments
Reports are generated at the laboratory, by laboratory staff, but are produced using an API owned and operated by Coriell Life Sciences.
Analytical Validity: Help
The minimum concentration of this assay was validated using 384 samples and was determine to be between 2.5 ng/uL and 50 ng/uL. Qualitative reproducibility was determined to be 99.90% percent using a total of 12 samples and over 7.9 million genotypes in total. Qualitative accuracy was determined by testing 382 … View more

Assay limitations: Help
Extracted samples with a DNA concentration below 2.5 ng/uL are unable to be tested. Additionally, this assay does not detect genetic variants other than those listed on the report.
Proficiency testing (PT):
Is proficiency testing performed for this test? Help

Method used for proficiency testing: Help
Formal PT program

PT Provider: Help
College of American Pathologists, CAP

Description of PT method: Help
Formal PT is performed using the APOE, MGL1, and PGX products available from the College of American Pathologists. Each program consists of two sets of challenges per year, with each challenge consisting of three samples. Assays that are not covered in a formal PT program are subject to an in-house … View more

Description of internal test validation method: Help
Prior to patient testing an internal validation was designed using the parameters set forth by the College of American Pathologists (CAP). This validation meets or exceeds all defined parameters. Additional validations are performed per processing cycle that consists of negative (no template controls) and positive (samples of known genotypes) reactivity.
