Neurocode Labs, Inc. offers testing centred around the practice of neurology. Physicians can request sample kits and order testing for their patients. Our testing is done by whole exome sequencing, which is then focused on a set of genes either known or suspected to be associated with various neurological conditions. Up to three likely causative or pathogenic mutations associated with the phenotype will be validated by Sanger sequencing, and a report will be returned to the referring physician. Turn-around time for all testing is eight weeks. No STAT test ordering is currently available. To request information or advice regarding the testing we offer, or the proper testing to order, please contact us. The full results of exome sequencing can be made available to the physician for more comprehensive genetic counseling or investigation, as well as any research collaborations to which the patient has consented.
Exome Sequencing for Epilepsy and Seizure Disorders
A set of 620 genes is interrogated for both known and potentially novel causative mutations. Please see the list of covered genes here.
This test also includes bioinformatics analysis, periodic
re-reporting, and one Sanger validation of a potentially causative mutation.
Cost: $3500 CAD
Neurocode Labs, Inc. also offers clinical confirmation of mutations discovered in other facilities. Results will be returned to the requesting facility.
This service is included for all MSP-funded testing, but is also offered on a fee-for-service basis.
Cost: $300 CAD per variant in one individual, plus $50 CAD per additional individual. Sanger validation in a parent-child trio would cost $400 CAD.

SEQUENCING QUESTIONS AND INTERPRETATION
Neurocode Labs, Inc. is dedicated to ensuring all questions regarding the results of the sequencing we perform are answered. Medical, scientific, technical and informatics experts are all available to answer any questions our clients may have about any of our processes; the applicability and reliability of results; and the processes involved behind the data we generate. If you have questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
USAGE OF REFERRAL LABORATORIES
Accuracy and reliability of sequencing results are the most important part of Neurocode's laboratory operations. At certain times, Neurocode Labs may need to send a sample submitted to us to a referral laboratory for sequencing at no additional cost to the user. If this happens, users or laboratory services will be notified before the sample is sent, and the results of that testing will be included in the report Neurocode Labs sends back.
At present, Neurocode Labs does not send any samples to referral labs for sequencing. Please contact us if you have questions about the referral lab process.
