There are over 50 different diseases that are categorized as lysosomal storage diseases — genetic testing can be crucial to finding a diagnosis. Some of the main symptoms can include:
The Invitae Detect LSDs program offers testing with multiple panels as well as with single genes. If the test comes back negative, clinicians have the option of re-requisition to another panel within the original clinical area.
You can also order the Invitae Canavan Disease Test, Invitae Wilson Disease Test, and single genes from the metabolic clinical area. To view those genes, view the paper order form.
*This panel does not currently test for Gaucher diesease.
Individuals tested through the Detect LSDs 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. To schedule a genetic counseling appointment, please contact GeneMatters at 1-866-741-5331 or schedule online at www.gene-matters.com (use partner code: LYSO).
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.
