Lineagen helps physicians personalize medical management for individuals with developmental delay and autism spectrum disorder by providing cutting-edge genetic testing services.
We make genetic testing accessible to everyone, from patient to provider, by combining simple non-invasive sampling, and advanced testing technology with dedicated service and support. Whether it's understanding your test results or navigating the insurance process, we help you every step of the way.
In the past, healthcare providers would often advise parents to “wait and see” because they simply didn’t have many tools to diagnose the underlying genetic cause for a child’s developmental delay. Today, FirstStepDx PLUS® CMA testing service helps providers pinpoint the cause of delay and develop a personalized healthcare management program for their patient. Testing today means treating correctly sooner.
Our FirstStepDx PLUS uses chromosomal microarray (CMA) testing technology, which can detect hundreds of genetic conditions and is recommended as the first-tier test for global developmental delay according to nationally accepted guidelines. Moreover, our test has the highest detection rate of any commercially available test.
For parents, one of the most important differences in our test is that we don’t require a blood draw to get a DNA sample. Instead, no needles, no tears; the FirstStepDx PLUS uses a painless cheek swab for DNA sampling.
After your test is run, we give you the results in plain English, in a detailed and personalized report anyone can understand. If you have questions, you can contact our team of genetic counselors.
Finally, we are the insurance reimbursement experts. Our team of reimbursement specialists handles everything, from pre-authorizations to appeals, so the insurance burden doesn’t fall on you or your doctor.
While there are many laboratories that provide genetic testing, Lineagen is the only laboratory that provides these additional levels of service for families.
