Single Genes

The type of test method required depends on the type of change that causes the disorder.

  • Sanger sequencing for hotspot analysis and single gene sequencing, with protocols established for more than 2,700 genes.
  • Next generation sequencing (NGS) for single gene sequencing and NGS-based copy number variation (CNV) analysis for over 6,500 genes.
  • Methylation assays to test for epigenetic disorders.
  • Deletion/duplication testing to identify large deletions or duplications using MLPA (multiplex ligation-dependent probe amplification), qPCR (real-time polymerase chain reaction) or ddPCR (digital droplet polymerase chain reaction).
  • Fragment length analysis (FLA) and/or repeat primed assays (RPA) to detect the extent of the repeat expansions using a capillary sequencer.

Single Gene Testing Is Recommended for Patients With

  • Distinctive clinical features  
  • Family history of a specific disorder 
  • Single gene disorders 
  • Possible epigenetic disorder 
  • Possible Triple repeat disorders
