Quest Exome with CNV Evaluation helps to improve disease diagnosis, monitoring, and treatment of rare neurological disorders. Exome with CNV Evaluation is used when the conditions are so rare no diagnostic tests exist, targeted testing is impractical, or definitive tests are unavailable or non-informative. This genetic testing portfolio includes Proband, Duo, Trio, and Reanalysis.

Quest Exome with CNV Evaluation can help:

  • Shorten a long, frustrating, costly diagnostic journey for adult and pediatric patients
  • Provide a genetic diagnosis
  • Lower costs for physicians and patients1

Quest Exome with CNV Evaluation includes:

Proband: Only the individual with the suspected genetic condition is tested

Duo: The individual with the condition and one biological family member, preferably a parent, are tested (whether the family member is affected or unaffected)

Trio: The affected individual and both family members are tested (whether either or both family members are affected or unaffected, parents are preferred).

Reanalysis: Reanalyzes previously generated exome data

Quest also offers genetic testing services than can support physicians, and help to turn test results into clinically actionable insights:

Variant IQ: Our highly specialized scientists and genetic counselors review and determine the significance of genetic variants. The team uses Quest’s extensive database and a rules-based, weighted process that is aligned with the American College of Medical Genetics and Genomics (ACMG) and the Association for Molecular Pathology (AMP).

Genetic counseling: Our highly trained geneticists and genetic counselors support physicians with clinical consultations, expert interpretive assistance on test results, assistance with patient information collection, and test selection.

Secondary Findings: We follow the recommendations to the ACMG for reporting secondary findings, with appropriate consent, on 59 medically actionable genes. Reporting these findings helps to identify and manage risks for selected highly penetrant genetic disorders on the list.

Exome testing has become a well-established tool for diagnosing genetic conditions in situations where no targeted gene testing exists, or when targeted genetic testing has failed to identify the cause of disease. Exome testing can provide or clarify a diagnosis and, in many cases, minimize invasive testing.2

Copy Number Variation (CNV) is a structural variation in the human genome and is an important genetic cause of disease. When exome testing includes CNV, it can increase the clarity of diagnostic reporting for physicians3.

For many, a genetic diagnosis is likely to impact healthcare management in one or more ways. These may include surgical decisions, changes in diet or pharmaceutical treatment, or a switch to palliative care.
