Additional Information
  1. This genetic test needs nucleated cells. Please don’t centrifuge or freeze the EDTA blood tube.
  2. Genomic DNA must be extracted from the specimen prior to testing. This incurs an additional charge (see GDNA). Laboratories may prefer to submit DNA for testing. Please provide a minimum of 5 micrograms of DNA at 20 nanograms / microlitre.
  3. Note to overseas labs: Report and invoice will be directed to the referring laboratory only. It is the referring laboratory’s responsibility to ensure that all interested parties receive test results and are appropriately charged.
