Whole Exome Sequencing Comparator - Father
This assay is not currently available in New York state.
This specimen should be collected from the father of the patient for whom Whole Exome Sequencing - DUO (Proband)  or Whole Exome Sequencing - TRIO (Proband)  is being ordered. The test to be ordered for the father is Whole Exome Sequencing Comparator - Father (620197).
Expected Turnaround Time
2 - 4 weeks
Turnaround time is defined as the usual number of days from the date of pickup of a specimen for testing to when the result is released to the ordering provider. In some cases, additional time should be allowed for additional confirmatory or additional reflex tests. Testing schedules may vary.
Lavender-top (EDTA) tube
Ship ASAP, but stable up to 5 days post-collection at room temperature. Do not freeze.
Causes for Rejection
Frozen blood EDTA tube
Whole exome sequencing (WES) is a genetic test used to identify a hertiable cause of disorder. This test should be used in cases of WES Duo or Trio sequencing where the father can be used as a comparator to inform the diagnosis of the proband.
This test was developed and its performance characteristics determined by LabCorp. It has not been cleared or approved by the Food and Drug Administration.
