Mutation-specific Sequencing, Whole Blood
- Sequencing, Follow-up
This test is available for family testing when a mutation has been specifically identified through universal carrier screening (Inheritest® Gene-specific Sequencing, NGS ; Inheritest® Ashkenazi Jewish Carrier Screening Panel, NGS ; Inheritest® Comprehensive Panel, NGS ; or Inheritest® Society-guided Screening Panel, NGS ); or VistaSeq℠ Hereditary Cancer Panel  or VistaSeq℠ Hereditary Cancer Panel Without BRCA ); or through GeneSeq: Cardio testing. (See links to tests in Related Information).
This analysis does not rule out the presence of disease-causing mutations in other regions of the gene(s) analyzed or in other genes, and it does not rule out the presence of large deletion or duplication mutations or complex rearrangements. False-positive results or false-negative results may occur for reasons that include: Genetic variants, technical handling, blood transfusions, bone marrow transplantation, mislabeling of samples or erroneous representation of family relationships.
This test was developed, and its performance characteristics determined, by Esoterix Genetic Laboratories LLC. It has not been cleared or approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
DNA is isolated and specific gene regions amplified by the polymerase chain reaction (PCR). Targeted mutations are detected by direct DNA sequencing using capillary gel electrophoresis and fluorescence detection.
Whole blood, saliva
Whole blood: 10 mL whole blood or 30 mL if ordering multiple tests. Saliva: One 2-mL tube from the Oragene® DNA OG-500 saliva kit
Saliva: Do not eat, drink, smoke, or chew gum for at least 30 minutes prior to collection. See Oragene® DNA OG-500 saliva kit for detailed instructions.
Maintain specimen at room temperature.
Indicate the specific gene and mutation to be analyzed on the test request form. Failure to indicate the gene and mutation will result in testing delays.
