Marfan Syndrome and Related Disorders Multi-Gene Panel, Varies

Method Description Describes how the test is performed and provides a method-specific reference

Next-generation sequencing (NGS) is performed using an Illumina instrument with paired-end reads. The DNA is prepared for NGS using a custom Agilent SureSelect Target Enrichment System. Data is analyzed with a bioinformatics software pipeline for sequence variants and the presence of large intragenic deletions and duplications. Supplemental Sanger sequencing or qPCR may be performed occasionally in regions where NGS is insufficient for data capture or not specific enough to correctly identify a variant. Sanger sequencing or qPCR may also be used for confirmatory testing.(Unpublished Mayo method)

 

Genes analyzed: ACTA2, CBS, COL3A1, COL5A1, COL5A2, FBN1, FBN2, FLNA, MFAP5, MYH11, MYLK, NOTCH1, SKI, SLC2A10, SMAD3, SMAD4, TGFB2, TGFB3, TGFBR1, and TGFBR2.

PDF Report Indicates whether the report includes an additional document with charts, images or other enriched information

No

Day(s) Performed Outlines the days the test is performed. This field reflects the day that the sample must be in the testing laboratory to begin the testing process and includes any specimen preparation and processing time before the test is performed. Some tests are listed as continuously performed, which means that assays are performed multiple times during the day.

Monday

Report Available The interval of time (receipt of sample at Mayo Clinic Laboratories to results available) taking into account standard setup days and weekends. The first day is the time that it typically takes for a result to be available. The last day is the time it might take, accounting for any necessary repeated testing.

2 to 4 weeks after prior authorization approved

Specimen Retention Time Outlines the length of time after testing that a specimen is kept in the laboratory before it is discarded

Extracted DNA: 2 months

Performing Laboratory Location Indicates the location of the laboratory that performs the test
