Request system Genome Diagnostics How does it work?

Since the beginning of June 2017, a new request system is offered by the section of Genome diagnostics. With this new system you can request genetic testing online, followed by the possibility to print the request form, which can be send to us together with the material.


Request system Genome Diagnostics How does it work?

Step 1 - Search
Search for the condition, the gene or service (Exome or Array) in the box 'search here’. Alternatively you can search for your test of interest by clicking the blocks on the right side ‘tests per condition’ or ‘tests per service’.  
Step 2 - Test details
View the test details (e.g. the turnaround time, method , preferred material etc.) or add the test directly to the shopping cart. Before the test can be added to the shopping cart a choice needs to be made between ‘analysis of the complete test’ or ‘targeted analysis of a familial mutation’.
Step 3 – Shopping cart
Another test can be added to the shopping cart or you can continue with the order.
Step 4 – Personal details
Patient details, clinical information and your own information (requesting physician) can be filled out online.
Step 5 - Confirm
Check and confirm the request.
Step 6 -  Request form
Download and print the generated request form (pdf), and, if needed, manually add missing information of your patient (e.g. information of the family tree).
Step 7 - Send
Pack and send the material together with the request form. If the material is already present in our laboratory, we still need to receive the printed request form (at this point request forms are not send automatically through this system). Only after receiving the request form the investigation can be started.  
Step 8 - Done
When we have received the request form and the material in good condition we will start the investigation.

We keep improving this system. For the near future our goal is to generate the possibility to send the request forms digitally to our laboratory and to generate a login/profile where your personal details can be saved.
 



View all our exome panels here

Below you will find all our exome panels in a row. By clicking on the panel of interest you will find all details of this test (e.g. TAT, prices and content of the panel). These exome panels regularly receive an update, inwhich genes are added (or removed from) the gene panel. If you would like to consult an older version of a gene panel, click here.

An overview of all genes that are analyzed by an exome sequencing service, and in which panel the gene of interest is located can be found via Genelists.

Request- and informed consent forms

Download here several forms for offline use.


Request- and informed consent forms

Below you can find:
  • A blanc requestform Radboudumc; which you can use in case you do not have the ability to perform your Radboudumc request online
  • A blanc requestform MaastrichtUMC+; which you can use in case you do not have the ability to perform your MaastrichtUMC+ request online
  • An informed consent form; which you can use in case you request a diagnostic exome sequencing test. This form is for your own use and documentation, and is not required to include this with the request and sample

Lab information


About us

Initiative of Radboudumc & Maastricht UMC+


About us

The section genome diagnostics of the department of Genetics, and the translational metabolic laboratory of the department of laboratory medicine (both of the Radboudumc in Nijmegen) started in 2013, an intensive and far-reaching cooperation with the department of Clinical Genetics of the Maastricht UMC+.

Together we are able to offer a complete package of genetic and enzyme-/biochemical tests for both national and international physicians. We offer diagnostics for a large number of acuired, hereditary and/or congenital disorders. New tests are implemented in diagnostics after an extensive validation in accordance with current quality standards.

We have complementary expertise in both centers and we can jointly develop and implement the latest technologies. All genetic and enzyme-/biochemical tests of these two centers are offered in one and the same (this) ordering system, regardless of where the test is performed.


Quality

Our laboratories are accredited


Quality

The Laboratory of Genome Diagnostics has state-of-the-art techniques and equipment. In the Competency Statement is described how the laboratory guarantees its quality. In this competency statement the scope and operation list of the laboratory are included.

To guarantee the quality, Genome Diagnostics is accredited for ISO 15189_2012 (accreditation number M100) and participates in the relevant quality assessment programs of the EMQN, UKNEQAS, CEQAS and CF Network (see certificates for past two years). Genome Diagnostics is registered on the websites of Orphanet and GeneTests.
