Sequence&Deletion/Duplication w/Inversion Analysis IDS Comprehensive - Sequence & Deletion/Duplication w/ Inversion Analysis
Test Code: 6814


IDS Comprehensive - Sequence & Deletion/Duplication w/ Inversion Analysis
Test Information: Confirmation of Clinical Diagnosis, Carrier Testing
Test Details
Test Code: 6814
Test Includes: Sequence, Deletion/Duplication and Common Inversion Mutation Analysis of IDS gene.


Special Notes: If the mutation to be tested in this individual is one previously identified in an affected family member, please order test (#6391). For Carrier Testing with known familial mutation(s), please order test (#6391). Please see detailed requirements under this test code.
Technical Information
Methodology: Sequence analysis is performed in both forward and reverse directions and Multiplex Ligation-dependent Probe Amplification (MLPA) analysis is performed to detect gross deletion and duplications. Testing for the common inversion mutation between the IDS gene and IDS pseudogene is performed by PCR amplification of the proximal/distal inversion junctions.
