Providing clarity and
The diagnosis of bleeding and thrombosing disorders relies heavily on specialized coagulation assays, but genotype assays are increasing in utility and availability.
Next-generation sequencing (NGS) testing can provide useful information that assists physicians including:
- Confirming the diagnosis of bleeding and thrombotic disorders
- Providing clarity and actionable results in situations where other testing methodologies provide inconclusive results for patients
- Identifying mutations that could explain patients’ unusual hemostatic phenotype and laboratory results
Created to meet the growing needs of our own clinical practice, Mayo Clinic now offers a comprehensive NGS full-gene sequencing menu for patients with bleeding and thrombosing disorders.
