We provide targeted DNA sequencing allowing us to focus specific areas of interest at a reduced price and faster delivery time. Our laboratory’s technology can accommodate small blood sample sizes, making it viable alternative to a trip to the phlebotomist and reducing the impact of blood-drawing on patients’ health.
NEXT GENERATION SEQUENCING – GERMLINE MUTATION
Our mtDNA Amplicon Sequencing Panel targets 21 mitochondrial genes associated with myopathy that include muscle weakness and wasting and other problems with movement. This assay is performed using mitochondrial DNA isolated from human peripheral mononuclear cells.
The test is intended to identify the variants found in mitochondrial genes that are associated with myopathy. The test is performed as a pre-symptomatic genetic test in order to determine whether an individual with a family history of a myopathy disease, but no current symptoms, has the gene alterations associated with the disease. The test can also be used for post-symptomatic genetic testing to confirm variants of association to myopathy disorders.
All tests are performed in Ayass BioScience, LLC. Ayass BioScience, LLC (DBA Ayass Lung Clinic, PLLC) is a CLIA certified laboratory.
