Claritas Genomics: The Future of Pediatric Diagnostics is Now

Speaker

Abstract

Increasingly genome sequence knowledge is unraveling the complexity of rare Mendelian disorders offering hope for our children's medical care through better disease diagnosis and ultimately patient care. When combined with the emerging new sequencing technologies, allowing large scale genome analysis to move rapidly into clinical laboratories, new opportunities arise for more precise medical care. Claritas Genomics was founded to deliver on the promise of science and technology merging for medical care. Our presentation will discuss the current needs for molecular diagnostics in pediatric populations and provide a better understanding of the role Claritas plays in enabling better patient decisions. Founded as a genetic diagnostic testing company, Claritas combine the power of next-generation DNA sequencing technology with the clinical expertise of the world's best pediatric specialists to assist in informing and improving patient care. Claritas offers a full range to support physician test ordering and support needed as they care for patients, navigating an increasingly complex landscape of genetic diagnostics. Our genomic interpretive services are based on the most up to date and reliable scientific findings and our reports are designed to clearly communicate this complex genetic information. Originally Boston Children's Hospital's CLIA molecular testing laboratory, and launched as an independent CLIA/GLP laboratory in February 2013, we have an existing comprehensive menu of tests, with new next-generation sequencing-based services to be launched in the fall of 2013. Through our partnership with Life Technologies, Claritas is also well positioned to offer cutting edge advances in DNA sequencing, offering products from single gene tests through to whole exomes. Claritas also maintains a close relationship with Boston Children's and its renowned investigators, to uniquely position us to translate novel research-based discoveries into diagnostic clinical practice. Thus we aim to enable health care providers to integrate genomics into the future of their routine medical practice responsibly and Claritas takes pride in our partnership with both our ordering clinicians and the genetic researchers making discoveries that will lead to new tests and clinical knowledge.
