DNA Genetic Carrier Screenings


CARRIER SCREENING PERSONALIZED SCREENING IDENTIFIES HEREDITARY DISEASES
THAT CAN BE PASSED DOWN UNKNOWINGLY TO CHILDREN

Diseases Include:

  • Cystic Fibrosis
  • Bloom Syndrome
  • Familial Dysautonomia
  • Sickle Cell Disease
  • Spinal Muscular Atrophy
  • Tay-Sachs
  • Fanconi Anemia
  • Gaucher Disease and many more

Carrier screening detects gene mutations linked to many of the most common diseases that can be passed down to a child. By understanding whether a patient is a carrier, they can determine if additional steps should be considered to reduce the likelihood of their children inheriting one of these diseases. In most cases, children are not at risk, but as 80% of all recessive diseases occur in families with no known family history, our simple test can provide invaluable information and peace of mind.

Anyone can be a carrier. Carrier screening for some diseases is recommended by American College of OB/GYN and American College of Medical Genetics for all patients of reproductive age. Most insurance companies cover Carrier Testing for people of reproductive age as it is much more cost effective to prevent these diseases than treat them.

Physicians are provided a dedicated login which grants access to easily retrievable comprehensive reports through our web-based portal. Our laboratory staff is dedicated to providing accurate results, short turnaround times and reporting that is informative. We provide all physician clients with prompt shipping and results within 8 to 10 days after insurance authorization.

HEREDITARY CANCER SCREENING


HEREDITARY  CANCER TESTING PERSONALIZED SCREENING
HELPS IDENTIFY HEREDITARY CANCERS

Cancer screenings are the beginning of prevention, diagnosis and treatment of diseases. As a physician, you want to improve the lives of your patients while maintaining their quality of life. Patients expect personalized care, tailored medications and thoughtful oversight. Early diagnosis based on preventive tests is highly important and can save a patient’s life.

Our Hereditary Cancer Test Panels analyze the most frequent syndromes that present predisposition to cancer. We cover analysis of 31 genes associated with the diseases, increasing the accuracy of diagnosis and treatment. Using test portfolios, our laboratory staff screens the most important aspects related to cancer care: predisposition, prevention, early detection, diagnosis, prognosis and treatment. These aspects allow us to offer a customized service to physicians and patients in terms of cancer treatment.

Breast Cancer

Ovarian Cancer

Colorectal Cancer

Pancreatic Cancer

Endometrial Cancer

Prostate Cancer

Gastric Cancer

Melanoma Cancer

Who should be tested?

  • Patients having several relatives with the same type of cancer
  • Patients having relatives diagnosed with cancer at young ages, usually < 50
  • Patients with several affected generations
  • Patients who have been diagnosed with cancer

Our Laboratory team supports physicians in their fields of activity, offering an on-site employee to assist with sample collection and manage the cancer program on your behalf. We will always assist in material orders, in-office sample reading and interpretation of all results.

Physicians are provided with a personal, dedicated login, which grants direct access to detailed comprehensive reports through our web-based portal. Each result is interpreted by an experienced geneticist in order to ensure quality and create an easily understandable report.

Our laboratory staff is dedicated to providing accurate results, short turnaround times and reporting that is informative and accessible. We produce direct results that provide physicians with immediate actionable diagnosis. We are committed to industry leading service and provide all physician clients with prompt shipping and results within 8-10 days after insurance authorization.

Our laboratory staff provides a genetic counselor to help an ordering physician decide which patients may be good candidates and which of the genetic tests may be appropriate for each of those patients. Our genetic counselors are healthcare professionals with specialized training in genetics. They can speak with the patient before and after the test results become available.

Topics discussed with our genetic counselor:

  • Possible test results the patient can expect
  • Family members who should consider genetic testing
  • Discussing what the patient’s genetic test results mean

TOXICOLOGY


TOXICOLOGY POINT-OF-CARE DRUG MONITORING HELPS IMPROVE ADHERENCE AND OUTCOMES

From a physician’s perspective, the best patient outcomes depend on the best possible information. Basic toxicology, long a foundational element of medical decision making, is perhaps more important now than ever before. Patient behaviors are changing. In an overly medicated society, going back to the basics is often exactly what is necessary. Toxicology tests protect the well-being of patients, practices and physicians.

Toxicology platform is a full service offering. We support medical office staff on all elements of the program and processes. We are able to assist with sample collection by providing an on-site employee to manage the toxicology program on your behalf. Whether we provide an on-site program manager or offer program support from a distance, we will always assist in material orders, in-office sample reading, shipping and interpretation of results.

The retrieval of patient reports is almost effortless using our web-based portal. Physicians are provided with a personal login which grants direct access to comprehensive reports.

Our laboratory staff is dedicated to providing accurate results, short turnaround times and reporting that is informative and accessible. We produce clear, straight-forward results that provide physicians with immediate actionable information. We are committed to industry leading service and we provide all physician clients with prompt, nationwide two-day shipping and results within 48 hours after receiving the samples.
