Claritas Genomics announces two new phenotypes to our Pediatric Neurology Region of Interest test as well as updates to pre-existing gene lists.

  • The Autism gene list includes 196 genes specifically curated to autism.
  • The Developmental Delay/Intellectual Disability gene list includes 340 genes relevant to DD/ID.

These two new sub-phenotypes offer providers more powerful testing for their patients with complex pediatric neurology phenotypes. In addition,...

Claritas Genomics has launched the Nephrotic Syndrome Region of Interest (NS-ROI). The NS-ROI sequences 42 genes relevant to Nephrotic Syndrome, an increase of 13 genes from the original Nephrotic Syndrome Panel, which is now discontinued. 

The NS-ROI is built on the Claritas Clinical Exome platform, which allows expansion into any Claritas exome product, and allows rapid changes to the gene list as discoveries in the field occur.  Additionally, clients can request raw data in the form of VCF and BAM files for further investigation into the patient's exome. Gene...
