How to design the perfect panel

March 06, 2018

How can a lab capture the current clinical and genetic expertise into an accurate diagnostics tool? As science moves forward, panels must be constantly improved and reviewed to ensure that the latest genetic knowledge is integrated. In this podcast, we discuss what to take into account when designing new panels to match clinical needs. "Many of the genes we have been currently adding are only very recently identified as clinically relevant. You really need to go to publications and investigate," says Eveliina Salminen.
Clinical interpretation in genetic testing of inherited disorders

August 10, 2017

Accurate diagnosis of a patient with suspected inherited disorder requires detailed clinical information of the patient combined with family history and genetic testing results. Correct diagnosis confirmed with genetic testing forms the basis for selecting impactful and efficient treatments and surveillance for patients with inherited disorders and enables genetic counselling of the patient and the family.
Transparency in genetic diagnostics

June 15, 2017

There is a significant completion to drive down the price and TAT of genetic diagnostics. To survive in this competition, laboratories have to either rigorously innovate or then make compromises in quality and performace standards. In an untransparent diagnostic environment, health care professionals have a hard time to evaluate optimal and best testing for their patients.
