Test ID NPPAN Peripheral Neuropathy Genetic Panels, Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS), Blood

Ordering Guidance

The recommended first-tier test to screen for hereditary motor and sensory neuropathy is PMPDD / PMP22 Gene, Large Deletion and Duplication Analysis, Varies, which assesses for large deletions and duplications of the PMP22 gene.

Shipping Instructions

Specimen preferred to arrive within 96 hours of collection.

Specimen Required

Patient Preparation: A previous bone marrow transplant from an allogenic donor will interfere with testing. Call 800-533-1710 for instructions for testing patients who have received a bone marrow transplant.

Specimen Type: Whole blood


Preferred: Lavender top (EDTA) or yellow top (ACD)

Acceptable: Any anticoagulant

Specimen Volume: 3 mL

Collection Instructions:

1. Invert several times to mix blood.

2. Send specimen in original tube. Do not aliquot.

Additional Information: To ensure minimum volume and concentration of DNA is met, the preferred volume of blood must be submitted. Testing may be canceled if DNA requirements are inadequate.

Useful For

Diagnosis of inherited peripheral neuropathies associated with known causal genes


Serving as a second-tier test for patients in whom previous targeted gene variant analyses for specific inherited peripheral neuropathy-related genes were negative


Identifying variants within genes known to be associated with inherited peripheral neuropathy, allowing for predictive testing of at-risk family members

Testing Algorithm

This test includes the option for either one 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, 2-4, 5-14, 15-49, 50-100, and 101-500). See Custom Gene Panel Ordering in Special Instructions.
