Which test is right for your child?2>
Let us help you select the right test.
Feel free to call our genetic counselors now at 435-292-8064. Once you submit your child’s information, it will be reviewed by a physician. If the test you have chosen doesn’t make sense for you, we will reach out to explain and you will be refunded.
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.
Price includes independent physician review fee of $38 for the Essential Test.
Think of your genetic code, or genome, as a book of instructions for how you should grow, develop, and function. The Advanced test checks the book for missing or duplicated chapters (the same evaluation as the Essential Test), as well as spelling errors within the text itself. It may be chosen by families whose child had prior negative (or normal) results. It is also a great choice for those who have not yet had genetic testing but want a comprehensive approach without undergoing a lengthy, stepwise testing process. Importantly, the cost of multiple tests often exceeds the cost of the Advanced Test, so this may allow you to reach a diagnosis sooner and at lower total cost.
Because you will have access to raw data, the Advanced Test is highly valuable because the information can be re-evaluated over time as the medical community’s knowledge about genetic variants advances. This test takes less than 8 weeks from swab to results.
