Technical Information


Clinical Significance: The NewbornDx™ Advanced DNA Sequencing Evaluation addresses multiple genetic conditions across all 16 body systems that can present in the newborn period or early infancy. This test provides the clinician with a single test of 1,722 relevant genes using dried blood spot cards, whole blood, or saliva samples with results within 7 days.
Methodology: Next Generation Sequencing
Reference Range: See Laboratory Report

CPT Coding


The CPT codes provided are based on AMA guidelines and are for informational purposes only. CPT coding is the sole responsibility of the billing party. Please direct any questions regarding coding to the payer being billed.

CPT: 81443

Specimen Requirements


Please label each specimen tube with two forms of patient identification. These forms of identification must also appear on the requisition form.

Specimen Type: Whole blood
Specimen Stability: Room temperature: 10 days, Refrigerated: 10 days, Frozen: Unacceptable
Specimen Requirements: 2 mL (1 mL minimum) whole blood collected in EDTA (lavender-top) tube
Instructions: Higher blood volumes ensure adequate DNA quantity, which varies with WBC, specimen condition, and need for confirmatory testing. Patients, 0-3 years may have higher WBC, yielding more DNA per mL of blood.
Alternate Specimen Type: Dried Blood Spot
Alternate Specimen Stability: Dried Blood Spot - Room Temperature: 2 days, Refrigerated: 2 years, Frozen: Unacceptable
Alternate Specimen Requirements: One Blood Spot Card with 5 blood spots (2 blood spots minimum)
Alternate Instructions: Please allow the spots to dry fully before placing in any packaging, approximately three hours.

Shipping Considerations


Transport Temperature: Room temperature
Reject Criteria: Whole Blood: Frozen, Dried Blood Spot: Frozen or bacterial contamination
Set-up/Analytic Time: 5-7 days
