Heritable Liver Disease Genetic Testing program.

The Cincinnati Children’s Molecular Genetics Laboratory, in conjunction with Jorge Bezerra, MD, and the Division of Gastroenterology, introduces Liver Panels by Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS).

The Heritable Liver Disease Genetic Testing program at Cincinnati Children’s originated with the development of the revolutionary JaundiceChip resequencing array.  Our program broadened its scope with the advent of our Liver Panels by Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS). The Liver Panels will meet your patients' specialized needs by offering a comprehensive genetic test menu for the diagnosis of an expansive range of heritable liver diseases.   

The Liver Panels are comprised of clinically relevant genes related to heritable liver diseases. We have created custom assays to correlate with your patients' unique clinical symptoms. The Liver Panels include the following genetic test options:

The Liver Panels use SureSelect Target Enrichment technology followed by next-generation sequencing to provide increased test sensitivity in a comprehensive and cost effective manner.  Our team of pediatric gastroenterologists and molecular geneticists will review and interpret each customized analysis, giving you access to unparalleled clinical expertise.

The Laboratory of Genetics and Genomics at Cincinnati Children's also offers single gene analysis for any gene on a panel, targeted variant analysis, and deletion / duplication analysis for several of the genes included in the Liver Panels. See a comprehensive list of tests offered.
