Genome Sequencing Service

Available as a diagnostic genetic test for patients with balanced translocations or inversions where characterisation of the breakpoint(s) will confirm/refute a genetic diagnosis [1]. The test price of £1750 includes low coverage (6-8x) genome sequencing and Sanger sequencing confirmation of the breakpoint(s). Please contact sian.ellard@nhs.net to discuss individual cases.
