How to Build a Smarter Panel

At Ambry, we offer many different options for genetic testing, sometimes more than one for the same disease, which we call “panels”. Ambry’s multi-gene testing panels are comprised of genes that have a threshold of evidence between a gene and the disorder for which a patient is being tested.  These panels are made up of genes that are known …

Improve Patient Care by Reducing Ambiguity in Gene-Disease Relationships

New discoveries are rapidly expanding our understanding of the human genome, and diagnostic laboratories use different approaches to interpret this knowledge. A challenge for laboratories is translating vast amounts of published evidence to determine the clinical validity of gene-disease relationships, which need to be integrated into a patient’s …

Exome Sequencing Provides More Coverage Than You Think

Advances in molecular diagnostics offer clinicians more choices than ever when it comes to disease-targeted genetic testing for their patients.1 However, the amount of options can complicate deciding which test is best for each patient.  Next generation sequencing (NGS)-based clinical genetic tests, such as multi-gene panel testing (MGPT), offer …
