1. DIAGNOSTIC TESTING
A. Next Generation Sequencing and Copy Number Variation Analysis
Turnaround time for next generation sequencing and deletion/duplication tests is 2 to 4 weeks following receipt of a sample in the laboratory.
B. Sanger Sequencing
Turnaround time for Sanger sequencing tests is 1 to 2 weeks following receipt of a sample in the laboratory.
2. CARRIER SCREENING
CTGT strives to complete all carrier screening tests within 2 weeks of receipt of a sample in the laboratory.
CTGT MAKES EVERY EFFORT TO EXPEDITE CASES INVOLVING ONGOING PREGNANCIES AND CASES WITH OTHER SPECIAL CIRCUMSTANCES (FOR EXAMPLE, SURGERY OR BONE MARROW TRANSPLANT IS DEPENDENT ON THE RESULTS). IF A SAMPLE NEEDS TO BE EXPEDITED, PLEASE INDICATE ON THE REQUISITION FORM OR CONTACT US AT (484) 244-2900 OR SECURE EMAIL TO INQUIRIES@CTGT.NET. PLEASE BE REMINDED NOT TO SEND PATIENT INFORMATION VIA UNENCRYPTED EMAIL AS EMAIL IS INHERENTLY UNSECURE.
While the above turnaround times are CTGT’s stated goal for completing all tests and CTGT meets these turnaround times in >90% of cases, we cannot guarantee that any individual test will be completed within these time frames.
