through genomic insights

Strand Rare Diseases Test

  • What information can the Strand Rare Disease Test provide?

    The test provides underlying genetic information for more than 400 rare disease conditions by analysing the responsible genes for presence of mutations. The test can detect severe recessively inherited Mendelian diseases with early age of onset.

  • What are the benefits of doing the Strand Rare Disease Test?
    • Genetic confirmation of a phenotypic diagnosis in affected individuals
    • Carrier testing to identify if parents carry the defective gene responsible for cause of disease
    • Prenatal diagnosis for pregnancy decisions*
  • Turnaround Time

    timeThe test report is delivered 4-6 weeks from receipt of sample in the lab.

  • Sample requirement
    • salivaSaliva in collection kits provided by Strand

    (or)

    • bloodBlood in EDTA tubes (2-5ml)

Strand Clinical Exome Test

  • What information can the Strand Clinical Exome Test provide?

    The test provides underlying genetic information for more than 3000 inherited disease conditions by analysing genes associated with known clinical phenotypes for presence of mutations.

  • What are the benefits of doing the Strand Clinical Exome Test?

    The clinical exome test can provide the following benefits:

    • A genetic explanation for disease with complex phenotypes can be established
    • Enables differential diagnosis of diseases
    • Provide comprehensive information on disease subtypes
  • When can the the Strand Clinical Exome Test be ordered?

    The clinical exome test can be ordered for:

    • Genetic confirmation of a phenotypic diagnosis in affected individuals
    • Carrier testing to identify if parents carry the defective gene responsible for cause of disease
    • Prenatal diagnosis for pregnancy decisions*
  • Turnaround Time

    timeThe test report is delivered 8-10 weeks from receipt of sample in the lab.

  • Sample requirement
    • salivaSaliva in collection kits provided by Strand

    (or)

    • bloodBlood in EDTA tubes (2-5ml)

Strand Neurology Panel

  • What disorders types are covered under the Strand Neurology Panel?

    The neurology panel covers the following sub-panels or disorder types:

    • Neuromuscular disorders
    • Neurodevelopmental disorders
    • Neurocognitive disorders
  • What information can theStrand Neurology Panel provide?

    The test provides underlying genetic information of complex and heterogeneous neuro-disorders enabling accurate and rapid clinical diagnosis.

  • What are the benefits of doing theStrand Neurology Panel?

    The neurology panel can provide the following benefits:

    • A genetic explanation for disease with complex phenotypes can be established
    • Enables differential diagnosis between syndromic and nonsyndromic forms of disorders
    • Provide comprehensive information on disease subtypes.
  • When can the the Strand Neurology Panel be ordered?

    The neurology panel can be ordered for:

    • Genetic confirmation of a phenotypic diagnosis in affected individuals
    • Carrier testing to identify if parents carry the defective gene responsible for cause of disease
    • Prenatal diagnosis for pregnancy decisions*
  • Turnaround Time

    timeThe test report is delivered 8-10 weeks from receipt of sample in the lab.

  • Sample requirement
    • salivaSaliva in collection kits provided by Strand

    (or)

    • bloodBlood in EDTA tubes (2-5ml)

*Prenatal Testing

Prenatal diagnosis is only offered based on the identified mutation in the proband sample or after carrier testing in the parents.
Prenatal test requirements:

  • maternal cell contamination certificate
  • Form F/ G

Sample required : Fetal DNA from CVS or Amniocentesis
