Testing strategy

Help

1)Once we will have the necessary documentation (order form, informed consent and pedigree for familiar cases), the physician / researcher applicant will receive an e-mail confirming the cost of the study to be performed. 2) In case of compliance, the physician / investigator applicant must respond to this e-mail, which will act as an undertaking to pay the requested study. 3) Once the acceptance is available, the study of the gene requested will be start. 4) Once the genetic analysis will be finished, the physician / researcher courier applicant will receive a report on the results of tests. At this time, the bill of genetic study will be issued, referring it to the address shown in the Billing section of the order form. Should it be necessary to specify in the bill the order number, line costs or other requirements, must be given in accordance email if they have not been mentioned in the order form.
