Test Update // Whole Exome Sequencing Reanalysis

Effective December 30, 2022, Baylor Genetics updated our policy for Whole Exome Sequencing (WES) Reanalysis, test code 1900. The update includes the first reanalysis to be performed at no charge with a turnaround time of 2-3 weeks.

The specific requisition to order reanalysis is available on our website. The completed requisition form should be faxed to our Client Services Department at 1-800-434-9850 or you can order the test online via our online portal. To optimize the outcome of the reanalysis process, we recommend waiting to order WES Reanalysis at least one year from the date that the original exome report was issued. In addition, please ensure that all new phenotypic information for the patient is provided with the reanalysis request.

If the healthcare professional requesting WES Reanalysis is from a different institution than the original ordering provider, we require a completed and signed “Request For And Content To Release of Information’s Records” form to be submitted with the reanalysis order. This authorization form is included in the WES Reanalysis Requisition and can be found on our website.

Please direct any questions to 1-800-411-4363 or email us at help@baylorgenetics.com . For the most up to date information about our test menu and requisitions, please visit our website at www.baylorgenetics.com.
