Frequently Asked Questions about VUS-Re-Evaluation
For which test results does CeGaT offer VUS re-evaluation?
VUS re-evaluation is offered for test results with VUS from germ line diagnostics (Single Gene Testing, Panel Diagnostics, and Exom Diagnostics) issued from 01 October.
What are the conditions?
During the first two years after the issue of the medical report, we regularly re-evaluate your patient’s VUS according to newest scientific findings. After this period, physicians can request information on VUS reclassification once a year for another three years.
CeGaT’s VUS re-evaluation is free of charge.
Is it possible to re-evaluate results which have been ordered before October 1, 2019?
Yes. You can order a VUS re-evaluation also for medical reports issued before October 1, 2019. Therefore, contact our sales team (firstname.lastname@example.org). Please include your CeGaT ID, initial letters of the patient, date of birth, and phenotypic changes in your message.
What does CeGaT need from my side for VUS re-evaluation?
Prior to the genetic analysis, we ask for the patient’s confirmation in the order form that allows us to re-evaluate the results in case of an identified VUS. We inform treating physicians through e-mail about reclassifications, so an e-mail address is required.
What can I do if I do not want to receive information about variant reclassification?
Please inform our sales team (email@example.com) about your wish for cancellation. You will not get any further information about a VUS re-evaluation for your patient.
