Webinar: Utilization of Multiple Molecular Testing Methodologies to Aid in Lung Cancer Patient Management

In the last few years several molecular testing methodologies — such as immunohistochemistry, PCR, and sequencing — have been approved by the US Food and Drug Administration to aid in the management of patients with lung cancer. In this webinar you’ll learn how these very different technologies serve specific needs and how creating a testing …

Case Study: Genetic Testing Lab Sees 25-Fold Scaleup with New Informatics System

This webinar offers a look at how an advanced genetics laboratory implemented and validated a commercial bioinformatics system to help scale its operations. William Kearns, founder of genetics testing lab AdvaGenix, will share his team’s experience as it sought to increase its testing throughput while maintaining high quality standards. After studying the time and cost …

South East Genomics

Welcome to our new home

We have recently changed our name from the NHS London South Genomic Laboratory Hub to the NHS South East Genomic Laboratory HubWe think it better reflects the region we cover!

Hello! Welcome to the South East GLH website. The site is not fully supported in older versions of Internet Explorer. To get the best experience, we recommend that you use Google Chrome or Firefox to browse the site.

With any Whole Genome Sequencing (WGS) test ordered, a Record of Discussion (RoD) form will also need to be submitted. This document is to record the patient’s consent for genomic testing and their choice on taking part in research. Guidance on the patient choice conversation can be found here
 
This RoD form will be available for clinicians to download from this webpage. Once completed with the patient, it can be send to the lab with the corresponding test order form and sample.
Tests available to order will be listed in the National Genomic Test Directory. A test order form will soon be made available for clinicians on this webpage to download and complete. This form will include the address of the laboratory that the appropriate sample and completed form needs to be sent to.
 
Until the new Genomic Laboratory Service goes live, please continue to follow existing test order processes.
 
Later this year, the online test ordering tool for Whole Genome Sequencing will be integrated into the National Genomics Informatics System (NGIS) and clinicians will be able to search or filter to find a clinical indication, confirm eligibility criteria and start the test request process for their patient.
