Metabolic Genomic testing

The complete list of the Clinical Indications for metabolic-associated rare disorders can be found in the National Genomics Test Directory. Testing is provided by three of the seven Genomic Laboratory Hubs in England. WMRGL provides local, regional and national testing for the clinical indications listed below.

All patients’ samples should be sent to WMRGL; DNA will be extracted and testing will either take place in WMRGL or DNA will forwarded for Whole Genome Sequencing or to our allocated provider according to NHS England’s instructions.

Please check the Test Directory eligibility criteria before your request any of these tests.

Referral forms can be found here  and for turnaround times please check here
