Advanced sequencing technologies


Sema4 Signal Hereditary Cancer employs multiple DNA analysis methods, along with custom bioinformatics, to ensure the highest detection rate for every gene on our panels. Our hereditary cancer testing technologies are >99% accurate.


    • High-throughput, next generation sequencing (NGS)

    • Targeted gene regions have an average depth of coverage ~200X, with >99.9% of regions covered at greater than 20X


    • Full exon NGS with custom bioinformatics algorithm for copy number variant (CNV) detection


    • Long-range polymerase chain reaction


    • Multiplex ligation-dependent probe amplication (MLPA)


    • Sanger sequencing for exons not meeting a minimum of >20X read depth


    • Confirmatory testing via MLPA, qPCR, ddPCR, and/or Sanger sequencing
