Laboratory ServicesWe partner with several full service, CLIA compliant specialty laboratories that offer the most technologically advanced “Gold Standard” analyzing equipment in the industry.
With a combination of state-of-the-art laboratory testing, processes, methodologies and cutting edge technology we assist in providing the highest quality of care.
We have designed a laboratory with clinicians and patients in mind. From the ease of submitting samples to the quick turn-around time of results, our clients are able to focus on patient care knowing our results are accurate.
We offer PGx testing for accurate prescription therapy as well as urine toxicology for pre-employment, court mandated, or as part of a treatment plan. We can perform a complete range of tests for alcohol and drugs including marijuana, cocaine, methamphetamine, PCP, MDMA, Ecstasy, benzodiazepines, barbiturates, prescription medications, pain medications and synthetic drugs.
Patients may respond to prescription medications in very different ways. It is often difficult to predict if an individual will benefit from a particular medication, whether they may experience an adverse reaction to it, or whether it may not affect them at all. Pharmacogenetics (PGx) testing is used to analyze a patient’s genes in order to identify any genetic variations which might influence how they respond to certain medications. PGX testing uses genetic information obtained from the patient to look for underlying factors contained in the DNA which may account for differences in drug metabolism and other physiological reactions. PGX testing helps doctors to eliminate “trial-and-error” methods of prescribing and allows for more accurate methods of treatment.
We offer a full spectrum of genetic tests:
- Pre-conception and Prenatal
- Neonatal Screening
- Adult Genetic Testing
- Personalized Medicine Oncology
- Reproductive Carrier Screen
The results provide information about you and your partner’s risk for having a child with certain genetic conditions, such as cystic fibrosis, Tay-Sachs disease, Fragile X syndrome and Duchenne muscular-dystrophy.
The test analyzes your DNA to determine if you carry a mutation related to these and other conditions.
The carrier screen focuses on two primary types of genetic disorders, those that will have a significant impact on a child’s health and those that may be treatable if detected early.
Family Genetic Test
Genetic diseases/disorders affect many people in the U.S. There are 158 different genetic diseases/disorders tested by the family genetic test. The test analyzes your DNA to determine if you carry a change in a gene that is linked to known diseases/disorders. Our Laboratories analyzes a small amount of your saliva to reveal a world of medical knowledge for you and your family.
Pre-conception and Prenatal
Tests to inform the expecting parent of the health of the fetus or couples contemplating conceiving of the potential risks of passing on a genetic disease.
Genetic disease is the leading cause of infant death in the United States, accounting for approximately 20% of annual infant mortality. Advances in genomic medicine and technological platforms have made possible low cost, pan-ethnic expanded genetic screening that enables obstetric care providers to offer screening for over 100 recessive genetic diseases.
Rare Mendelian genetic diseases are collectively present in 1 in 280 births, which is more common than Down syndrome.
All couples planning a pregnancy should consider screening because it allows them to consider all reproductive options, including pre-implantation genetic diagnosis, prenatal diagnosis, gamete donation, or adoption.Neonatal Screening Includes routine and complex tests to determine causes of developmental delay and intellectual disability Extensive menu of prenatal testing to detect deviations and abnormalities in the embryo Chromosomal microarray analysis and next generation sequencing, including whole exome sequencing and disorder-speciﬁc panels Biochemical testing for the quantitative determination of a broad array of analytes and over 30 enzyme assays are available for speciﬁc disorders
Adult Genetic Testing
Identiﬁes adult inherited disorders, predispositions or sensitivity to speciﬁc therapeutics
Personalized Medicine Oncology
Includes consultative diagnostic path, hematopath, cancer cytogenetics, FISH, PCRbased mutation analysis and gene sequencing
Who Should Get Tested?
Anyone who is currently pregnant or planning a pregnancy may want to consider carrier screening. Additionally, individuals who have a family history of a genetic condition may want to determine their risk to have a child with the condition.
Why Should I be Tested?
Choosing the carrier screening will help determine if you are at an increased risk of having a child with an inherited disease. If your test results are negative, your risk for having a child with a condition included in this panel is reduced. If your results indicate that you are a carrier, then you and your partner can talk more with your healthcare professional about additional testing and reproductive options.
Who is Eligible for Genetic Testing? All individuals and couples of adult age who are interested in discovering if they carry changes in genes that are linked to diseases/disorders known to affect individual and family health.
Virtually all private insurance plans cover genetic testing.
