Test Launch // Rapid Whole Genome Sequencing

Dear Valued Clients,

Thank you for your continued trust in Baylor Genetics as your genetic testing partner, as we continually upgrade and refine our test menu and services, we want you to be the first to know about the changes that may affect your testing with us.

Last month, we announced updates to our Whole Genome Sequencing (WGS) product, which included the reporting of mitochondrial variants, trinucleotide repeats, and structural variants. Click here to read the full memo regarding these updates.

Effective immediately, and to better serve our partners and their patients, BG is proud to launch a rapid version of its Whole Genome Sequencing product (test code 1822). When ordering Rapid WGS Trio, providers can now expect patient results as early as *5 business days. BG’s WGS test provides comprehensive analysis and timely results to patients, which can help speed-up diagnosis and ensure appropriate medical management and treatment.

If you have specific questions regarding these updates, please contact your Baylor Genetics account representative, call our Client Relations Division at 1-800-411-4363, or email us at help@baylorgenetics.com.

Thank you for your continued business.

*The turnaround time begins when the patient’s sample arrives at the BG Lab Some results may require confirmatory studies, which will cause additional time of reporting. Currently, Rapid WGS Trio is only validated to accept blood samples. Additional sample types for this product are expected to be validated later this year.
