The Diagnostic Center for Heritable Immunodeficiencies (DCHI) at Cincinnati Children’s is the largest and most specialized center in North America for the diagnosis of rare primary immunodeficiencies, bone marrow failure syndromes and other disorders of the immune system. The DCHI has been recognized as a center of excellence by the Federation of Clinical Immunology Societies and the Jeffrey Modell Foundation.
We are introducing five new next-generation sequencing (NGS) panels for the following disorders:
Other disorders for which the DCHI offers rapid screening and genetic diagnostic testing include hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis (HLH), Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome (WAS), X-linked lymphoproliferative disease (XLP), autoimmune lymphoproliferative syndrome (ALPS) and X-linked immune dysregulation and polyendocrinopathy, enteropathy syndrome (IPEX).
Molecular Genetics LaboratoryHigh-quality molecular genetic testing and sophisticated interpretation of results by clinical and genetics experts
Diagnostic Immunology LaboratoryCorrelated functional assays for a wide range of immune diseases
Immunodeficiencies and Histiocytosis Program (Clinical)Experienced medical management including one of the country’s largest stem cell transplantation programs

Next-generation sequencing (NGS) is a method of sequencing multiple genes at one time. NGS involves randomly fragmenting a patient's DNA, sequencing these fragments and bioinformatically fitting the pieces back together. NGS can be a more efficient solution for you and your patients if more than one or two genes are being tested at once.
