Drug Response
Clinical validity: Help
Genetically-guided (precision) cardiac medication prescribing is a rapidly evolving technological frontier. It offers hope for reducing trial-and-error prescribing, thereby enhancing patient outcomes. Given the global burden of cardiovascular conditions, better therapeutic approaches are a global health and economics priority.
Clinical utility: Help
Target population: Help
Quantigen's COR120 Comprehensive Pharmacogenetic Test is designed to provide guidance to caregivers in creating and/or modifying their patient's prescription drug regimen, based on the patient's genetic status for several clinically relevant pharmacogenetics-associated genes.
Variant Interpretation:
What is the protocol for interpreting a variation as a VUS? Help

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

Will the lab re-contact the ordering physician if variant interpretation changes? Help
Yes. We are a reference contracted by Coriell. Coriell has provided the following information: Regular reassessment of genetic test results is an integral aspect of the process—it allows for the incorporation of any new research or knowledge that may impact the interpretation of the results. To this end, our system automatically … View more
Is research allowed on the sample after clinical testing is complete? Help
No, samples are stored and disposed of after a certain period of time. The samples are only used for the clinical testing.

Life Technologies TaqMan OpenArray MicroRNA Panels
Test Confirmation: Help
Positive predictive value, defined as the probability that subjects with a positive screening test have the disease, is not applicable re not applicable to these LDTs, as they are used only to guide drug treatments, but not to detect disease.
Test Comments: Help
The clinical characteristic most relevant to our LDTs is their predictive value for determining which patients will respond to optimized drug treatments. Currently, we utilize the clinical genomics company Translational Software (Bellvue, WA), and the Coriell Institute for Medical Research (Camden, NJ) to correlate genotypic data with clinical outcomes.

Analytical Validity: Help
All 62 LDTs performed well in the assay validation studies. High levels of accuracy and precision were observed for all LDTs, with most displaying 100% accuracy and precision. Genetically defined reference standards were used for accuracy testing, and results generated by a partner laboratory were included for precision, further strengthening … View more
