Notation will be made on the proband report for qualifying variants, including both single nucleotide variants (SNV) and copy number variants (CNV). Please note only testing performed at MNG Laboratories is eligible for the MNG VIP service.
Parental samples are encouraged, but MNG understands that in some cases both parents may not be available. We will only accept immediate familial samples that will be able to help in classifying the variant in the proband. Please feel free to contact us to help determine if family members will be accepted for those cases in which both parents are not available.
Family members tested through MNG VIP will not receive an individual variant report. Only the proband will receive an updated report, even if there is no change to the classification of the variant. If those family members tested through the MNG VIP would like to receive a report, they will need to order standard known familial variant testing at list price.
Additional or non-informative family members can be tested through standard Known Familial Variant testing. This includes SNV and CNV variants. Separate reports will be generated for each family member submitted.
Familial testing for proband samples not performed at MNG are limited to SNV variants only and can be submitted through our Known Familial Variant testing. Separate reports will be generated for each patient submitted.
