Test ID: WDZ    
Wilson Disease, Full Gene Analysis, Varies

Useful For Suggests clinical disorders or settings where the test may be helpful

Diagnostic confirmation of Wilson disease

Genetics Test Information Provides information that may help with selection of the correct genetic test or proper submission of the test request

Ceruloplasmin, serum copper, and urine copper studies are recommended prior to submitting sample. Test includes next-generation sequencing of exons 1 through 21 and for the common Sardinian promoter mutation. Sanger sequencing may be performed to confirm detected variants.

Testing Algorithm Delineates situations when tests are added to the initial order. This includes reflex and additional tests.
