Important Test Information
Learn More about Our Tests and Reports
Clinical grade sequencing and testing services are performed in a CAP accredited and CLIA registered laboratory in the United States.
Our test sequences the entire genome (whole genome sequencing) at an average of 30X of coverage, and provides genetic risk information based on assessment of specific genetic variants included in each report, so that you can choose what areas to investigate, when you want. The test does sequence the entire genome but does not automatically report on your entire genetic profile. As genomics discoveries advance, our test may not detect all genetic variants related to a given disease, and the absence of a variant tested does not rule out the presence of other genetic variants that may be related to the disease.
Other companies offering a genetic risk test may be analyzing smaller sections of your genome and may be detecting different genetic variants for the same diseases, and so you may get different results using a test from a different company.
Other factors such as environmental and lifestyle risk factors may affect the risk of developing a given disease.
Some people may feel anxious about getting genetic test health results. This is normal. If you feel very anxious, you should speak to your doctor or other health care professional prior to collection of a sample for testing. This test is not a substitute for visits to a doctor or other health care professional. You should consult with your doctor or other health care professional if you have any questions or concerns about the results of your test or your current state of health.
We provide access to a genetic counselor, board-certified clinical molecular geneticist, to discuss the results of your test, included in the price of your test.
Our test is not intended to diagnose a disease, tell you anything about your current state of health, or be used to make medical decisions, including whether or not you should take a medication or how much of a medication you should take.
Our test is not intended to diagnose a disease, determine medical treatment, or tell you anything about their current state of health.
Our test is intended to provide users with their genetic information to inform lifestyle decisions and conversations with their doctor or other health care professional.
Any diagnostic or treatment decisions should be based on testing and/or other information that you determine to be appropriate for your patient.
The laboratory may not be able to process your sample, if the results from processing do not meet our standards of accuracy. Our policy for re-processing failed samples is below:
- If the initial processing fails for any of above reasons, we will reprocess the same sample at no charge to the user.
- If the second attempt to process the same sample fails, we will offer to send another sample collection kit to the user to collect a second sample at no charge.
- If the second attempt to process the sample is unsuccessful, we will not send additional sample collection kits and the user will be entitled solely and exclusively to a complete refund of the amount paid to us, less shipping and handling.
Dante Labs does not and will not sell your genetic or personal data.
Also, understand your rights. The Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act (GINA) is a federal law that provides some protections against discrimination by insurance companies based on your genetic test results.
