Test ID LPGD Lysosomal, Peroxisomal, Glycogen, and Neuronal Ceroid Lipofuscinosis Panels, Next-Generation Sequencing, Varies

Advisory Information

For neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis: First-tier biochemical testing is available for the 2 most common types of enzyme deficiency: TPPTL / Tripeptidyl Peptidase 1 (TPP1) and Palmitoyl-Protein Thioesterase 1 (PPT1), Leukocytes.


For peroxisomal disorders: Preliminary biochemical testing may be helpful in making a diagnosis. See POX / Fatty Acid Profile, Peroxisomal (C22-C26), Serum.

Useful For

Follow up for abnormal biochemical results and confirmation of suspected lysosomal storage diseases, neuronal ceroid lipofuscinoses (Batten disease), peroxisomal disorders, or glycogen storage diseases


Identifying mutations within genes known to be associated with lysosomal storage diseases, neuronal ceroid lipofuscinoses (Batten disease), peroxisomal disorders, or glycogen storage diseases, allowing for predictive testing of at-risk family members

Genetics Test Information

This test includes next-generation sequencing and Sanger sequencing to evaluate the genes on this panel including detection of large deletions and duplications.


This ordered service includes the option for 1 of the following metabolic panels:

-Lysosomal Storage Disease Panel (58 genes)

-Neuronal Ceroid Lipofuscinosis (Batten Disease) Panel (15 genes)

-Peroxisomal Disorder Panel (30 genes)

-Glycogen Storage Disease Panel (26 genes)

-Custom Gene Panel (

-Custom Gene Ordering tutorial:


Risk alleles for Parkinson disease with no known enzyme reduction or lysosomal storage disease association will only be reported in patients over 18 years old. Polymorphisms are available upon request for all patients.


See Targeted Genes for Lysosome, Peroxisome, GSD Panels in Special Instructions for details regarding the targeted genes for each test.


This test uses next-generation sequencing to test for variants, including large deletions and duplications, in the genes indicated.


Identification of a pathogenic variant may assist with prognosis, clinical management, familial screening, and genetic counseling for lysosomal storage disease, neuronal ceroid lipofuscinoses (Batten disease), peroxisomal disorders, or glycogen storage disease.

Testing Algorithm

See Advisory Information for recommended first-tier biochemical testing.


If skin biopsy is received, fibroblast culture will be added and charged separately.


This test includes the option for either 1 of several predefined panel tests or the option to create a custom gene panel. Pricing for the Custom Gene Panel will be based on the number of genes selected (1, 2-14, 15-49, 50-100, and 101-500).
