Hereditary Epilepsy

Comprehensive mutation and copy number variation analysis

We perform in-depth mutation and copy number variant (CNV) analysis using next-generation sequencing to determine the causes of epilepsy and identify potential treatment options. Our comprehensive panel was carefully vetted by a multidisciplinary team of board-certified Mayo Clinic epileptologists and geneticists to only include clinically significant genes known to be causal for epilepsy when mutated. Interpretation by our experts and the availability of in-house confirmatory biochemical assays add value to our test offering.
