Flexibility

We pride ourselves in providing the highest level of flexibility and customization. If you were not able to find a panel suiting your patient's needs you can create a Custom NGS panel using any of our 18,000+ genes.

Reflex Testing Options

Reflex options are designed to broaden your patient’s genetic analysis to exome sequencing when primary testing is non-diagnostic. First, select a single gene, preset panel, or custom panel. If genetic variants are identified which are sufficient to make a molecular diagnosis the result is reported, typically within 3-4 weeks. If our curation scientists find that no diagnosis can be made, the selected reflex testing is initiated. Both of our exome sequencing reflex options are patient-centric, phenotype-driven analyses designed to examine coding regions and splice junctions for thousands of genes, and report only the variants which are of plausible clinical relevance for your patient. As such, we require clinical information for all exome related tests. These options allow for a shorter turn-around-time and a lower cost than sequential or individual test orders. This flexibility eliminates the need for separate office visits, blood draws, and requisitions, and allows the diagnostic search to continue unimpeded.


All-In-One Reflex

With this option, the reflex test is Fulgent’s Clinical Exome Sequencing (CES), which targets over 4,000 genes enriched for clinical significance. This approach is best suited for individuals with multiple clinical features who do not fit a specific clinical diagnosis, but fall within the spectrum of well-established Mendelian conditions.

Whole-In-One Reflex

With this option, the reflex test is Fulgent’s Whole Exome Sequencing, which targets over 18,000 genes. This approach is best suited for individuals with very rare clinical presentations, either because of a single atypical finding or an unfamiliar combination of phenotypes.
