The PTC Pinpoint Neurotransmitter Disorders program offers testing with the Invitae Neurotransmitter Disorders Panel.
The Invitae Neurotransmitter Disorders Panel analyzes up to 27 genes that are associated with disorders of monoamine metabolism, GABA metabolism, and neurotransmitter receptors and transporters.
Individuals tested through the PTC Pinpoint Neurotransmitter Disorders 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.
If you don’t find answers with your initial order, PTC Pinpoint™ Neurotransmitter Disorders program includes one re-requisition within 90 days to genes within the original clinical area.
Simply log into your account, navigate to the order, and click "Add rerequisition”
If a positive result is identified, testing for your patient’s family members is available.
Simply follow the ordering instructions, selecting only the gene(s) you are interested in testing for the family member. The partner code will automatically be added with the order.
