Prenatal Trio Whole Exome Sequencing
Test Information: The Prenatal Trio Whole Exome Sequencing (Prenatal Trio WES) test is ordered by a physician and must be accompanied with a consent form and detailed clinical information. In general, the test is used when prenatal imaging detects an anomaly that strongly suggests that there is an underlying genetic etiology. Prenatal Trio WES is often considered only after fetal chromosome microarray analysis has been non-diagnostic.

Test Code: 1622
Test Includes: Fetal report includes:
Pathogenic or likely pathogenic variants in disease genes related to the prenatal indications.

Variants in disease genes unrelated to the prenatal indications but likely to cause significant disorders during childhood.

Carrier status for autosomal recessive conditions will include disorders recommended for reproductive screening by professional societies such as ACMG or ACOG.
