Ambry Shares: Whats Next in Cardiovascular Genetics

  • We invite you to a 1-hour overview of these cardiovascular genetic testing options. We will familiarize you with our test offerings for inherited arrhythmias, cardiomyopathies and aortopathies, highlighting in which scenario each option may be most relevant. Our panels also feature a new tiered approach to testing for many inherited cardiovascular conditions. We will review our reflex testing options for hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCMFirst and HCMNext) and for inherited arrhythmias (RhythmFirst and RhythmNext). These allow clinicians to tailor testing to their patient based on clinical presentation, turnaround time, family history, and other specific needs.
