Gene sequencing panels with the NGS method

Gene sequencing panels with the NGS method (NGS analysis) can be offered to patients who have had amniocentesis or chorionic biopsy.

 

Provides information about the smallest units of chromosomes –genes. The analysis of 6,700 genes this test can identify monogenic diseases, including hereditary recessive (both parents pass a defective gene to their child, affects 25% of children) and X-linked diseases (mother is a carrier of the disease, affects her sons). These diseases can often not be discovered before birth and present after birth during the first years of a child's life.

 

The purpose of this analysis is to discover definite or possible disease-related genetic variants that cause serious genetic diseases presenting in childhood. With parents' approval, results are given about secondary findings enabling medical intervention that currently includes 73 genes as well*.

    Detailed description of incidental dindings

 

 

This test examines 25 monogenic diseases assessed in the Vistara test as well as 276 autosomal recessive and X-linked diseases assessed in the Horizon test. It also examines 19 metabolic disorders which newborns are currently being screened for in Estonia.

 

The answer to the NGS analysis comes 35 days after the invasive procedure.
