Why Clarity Genetics?
When testing, our laboratory analyzes all of the coding DNA in a gene to determine if any disease-causing pathogenic variants are present. By sequencing all of the coding DNA in a gene, instead of just a portion, we are able to offer the most accurate genetic testing available, regardless of your ethnicity. The majority of laboratories are only sequencing a portion of the gene, leaving room for error with missed pathogenic variants, especially when testing a variety of ethnicities. By sequencing the entire gene, Clarity Genetics testing eliminates the doubt in a negative result and drastically reduces the residual risk, regardless of ethnicity.
