The PTC Pinpoint program offers testing with the Invitae Neurotransmitter Disorders Panel.
The Invitae Neurotransmitter Disorders Panel analyzes up to 37 genes that are associated with disorders of monoamine metabolism, GABA metabolism, and neurotransmitter receptors and transporters.
Individuals tested through the PTC Pinpoint program are eligible for post-test genetic counseling to help them understand their test results. This service is provided through GeneMatters, a third-party genetic counseling service, and is made available by Invitae at no charge as part of the program.
Patients can access genetic counseling by having their provider:
1. Complete the referral form
2. Attach the genetic test results to the referral form
3. Fax both the referral form and the genetic test results to GeneMatters at 612-808-5186
Patients will then be contacted by GeneMatters to schedule an appointment.
