Analyse key genes in one test:
Dementia, Alzheimer, Parkinson, Motor Neurone & other neurogenetic disorders
This new series of panel tests are designed for rapid and cost effective diagnosis for degenerative neurogenetic conditions (listed in detail below).
Our neurogenetic panels are fully NATA accredited. Results are handled with sensitivity and delivered in a timely manner.
Panel testing can be useful in the following clinical contexts:
- predictive testing
- carrier testing
- prenatal diagnosis
VCGS also provides complete clinical and genetic counselling support services.
Our suite of tests include all inherited forms of Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (AL), Frontotemporal dementia (FTD), early and late-onset Alzheimer disease (EOAD, LOAD), Parkinson disease (PD), Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease (CMT) and X-linked and adult onset spinal muscular atrophy (SMA).
Testing can be arranged through specialist neurologists or through genetics services.
