Sequencing the PMS2 gene is difficult. Accurately analyzing complex portions of this gene for sequence and del/dup variants usually requires expensive and complex lab techniques. We have developed a method for full PMS2 sequencing and deletion/duplication analysis that offers both the same high quality and the same affordable price you’ve come to expect from Invitae.
Our new, highly accurate method covers both PMS2 and its pseudogene, PMS2CL. The trick lies in evaluating all reads from both genes as if they belonged only to PMS2, and then using a bioinformatic screen to call variants across this region. In cases where no variants are found, the sample can continue through the testing process. In cases with positive screen findings, we use alternate technologies to determine whether the variant is in PMS2 or PMS2CL.

Estimate your out-of-pocket cost for Invitae tests related to a personal or family history of breast, ovarian, colorectal, or uterine cancer.
The amount shown above is an estimate of your out-of-pocket cost based upon the information you entered about your health insurance coverage. It is not a confirmation that the test has been authorized by your insurance provider. Your final cost may vary based upon your health plan design, deductible, co-insurance, and out-of-pocket limits.
