Comprehensive Hereditary Cancer Risk Assessment - our state-of-the-art, CLIA certified and COLA accredited facilities perform Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) based screening for mutations known to affect an individual’s risk of developing hereditary cancer. Results from the Hereditary Cancer Screening test enables physicians to make better informed treatment decisions.
