Think of your genetic code, or genome, as a book of instructions for how you should grow, develop, and function. The Essential Test checks the book to make sure there aren’t any missing or duplicated chapters. This identifies genetic conditions that are referred to as “deletion” or “duplication” syndromes. Our team has over 8 years of experience in testing children with autism or developmental delay, and this test identifies the top 30 most common conditions.
The Essential Test is a fast, accurate, and guideline-recommended way for most families to begin their genetic testing journey to reach a diagnosis. This test takes less than 3 weeks from swab to results.
