Tests Offered

The Molecular Genetics Lab currently offers genetic testing for DNA mutations associated with cardiac disease as part of the Cardiovascular Diseases Genetic Testing Program. Testing may be ordered for individual genes (see table below) or for panels of genes offered by disease (see dropdown below). In families in which a mutation has been identified, targeted testing is available at a reduced cost. Order known familial mutation testing in these cases. DNA extraction and storage without genetic testing is also available.
