Performance Characteristics



  • Entire test performed in-house

Analytical Validity


Sequencing: >94% for single nucleotide and >76% for small insertion/deletion variants for the nucleotides evaluated. Exonic deletions/duplications: >97% for unique regions of the genome. This test is not validated to identify small deletions/insertions of greater than 20bp, exonic deletions and duplications in pseudogenes or other repetitive regions of the genome (e.g. segmental duplications), nucleotide repeat expansions, mitochondrial DNA variants or mosaicism. Disease-associated variants in regions that are not captured and/or sufficiently sequenced will not be detected by this assay.
