From Research to Clinical Genome Services

Recognizing that a rapid, definitive diagnosis can allow for faster, effective intervention for infants and children with undiagnosed rare diseases, Children’s Colorado began participating in genomic research studies with RCIGM in 2017. The success of those initial cases led Children’s Colorado to begin accessing RCIGM’s Clinical Genome Services for patients in the NICU/PICU in 2018. The collaboration has since expanded to serve Colorado patients with metabolic disease, neuromuscular disease, cancer and other conditions.

The thing I most value is feeling like I can both get results quickly and be confident that the testing that was done was as sensitive as it could be.”

The fact that, in some cases, we can give families certainty and sometimes even a management strategy based on the accuracy of the diagnosis is pretty remarkable.”
