Blueprint Genetics Boosts the Cost-Effectiveness of Family Member Testing

Apr 24, 2014

Following the successful launch of our index diagnostic panels the number of family members tested at our laboratory has increased significantly during past months. The risk stratification of family members is one of the major reasons for genetic testing and we want to lower the barrier of testing further and provide more cost-effective family member testing. We are happy to announce a new decreased pricing for family member testing. The prices of Sanger sequencing based tests have been reduced by 50% on April 23th 2014.

In addition to mutation-specific Sanger tests, we provide NGS sequencing panels for family member testing. The NGS panel is an economical and effective tool for the complete segregation analysis when evaluating large number of variants. Similar to index patient testing, the results for family member testing are also available within 21 days.

Family member testing                                  Price

Sanger: Family member test 1 mutation             €150
Sanger: Family member test 2 mutations           €225
Sanger: Family member test 3 mutations           €300
NGS: Family member testing                            €600
