MNG Laboratories RNA Sequencing Tests

MNG Laboratories has launched several diagnostic RNA sequencing services for patients with neurogenetic disorders. Three types of tests are available, all with turnaround times of two to four weeks: MNG Transcriptome, which provides complete transcriptome sequencing; gene-specific RNA sequencing, which includes up to five genes for investigating previously identified variants of unknown significance; and panel-specific RNA sequencing, which analyzes the expression of all genes in an NGS panel that was ordered at the same time. The tests have been validated in blood; fibroblast, muscle, and lymphoid cell lines; and nervous and brain tissue.
