Custom Family Sequence Analysis
(Familial Mutation/Variant Analysis)
Test Information: Confirmation of Clinical Diagnosis - Known Mutation(s), Presymptomatic Testing - Known Mutation(s)
Test Details
Test Code: 1580
Test Includes: Sequencing of the region(s) containing the familial alteration(s)

Special Notes: Test codes 1580-1589 are to be used when requesting sequencing of a known familial variant(s) for which the BMGL does not provide a separate specific test code. These should only be used when the BMGL has already identified the sequence change in the proband/original patient. If proband testing was performed at another lab, call to discuss prior to sending sample. Please select one test code per each gene requesting targeted testing (EX: first gene is test code 1580, second gene is test code 1581, etc.).
