Genetic testing has emerged as the foundation of personalized medicine, particularly in the realm of neurodiversity. In the journey to understand and address the complexities of neurological conditions such as autism spectrum disorder (ASD), and various developmental delays, genetic tests have become the gold standard for informing care and treatment plans. 

These tests provide healthcare providers with invaluable insights into their etiology, progression, and potential treatment avenues. This paradigm shift from a one-size-fits-all approach to a tailored, genetics-informed strategy not only enhances diagnostic accuracy but also facilitates the development of more effective and targeted care plans, ultimately improving the quality of life for neurodiverse individuals.

Quadrant Lab’s core focus of genetic testing is centered around autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and its associated conditions. Here’s a glimpse into our genetic test offerings.

  • Autism Spectrum Disorder / Intellectual Disability Panel (NGS)
    • The premier method for analyzing genes linked to autism, delving deeply into these specified genes to identify even the subtlest variations
  • FMR1 Repeat Analyses  
    • Analyzes the FMR1 gene associated with Fragile X syndrome, Fragile X-associated primary ovarian insufficiency, Fragile X-associated tremor/ataxia syndrome

How does ordering work?

Our saliva-based testing can only be ordered by a licensed healthcare provider, but sample collection can be done in the convenience of the patient’s home. This allows healthcare providers including those in telehealth the opportunity to utilize genetic testing as part of their care plans.


Quadrant Laboratories works with the patient and their family to determine insurance coverage, assess potential out-of-pocket costs and get patient consent before proceeding with testing

A test kit containing saliva collection devices will be sent to the practice or patient’s home for collection and return shipment

Results will be sent to the ordering provider within 4-6 weeks after receipt at our lab

Genetic counselors are available to discuss results and what treatment options may be best moving forward

"Utilizing saliva-based at-home collection will set a new standard in care, making genetic testing more accessible to families. This approach diminishes testing barriers, aiding in care management and pinpointing tailored therapies. Our extensive genetic panel enables a comprehensive assessment of various potential autism indicators from a single clinical indication."

The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and various other esteemed organizations suggest genetic testing, particularly when there are suspicions of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), Global Developmental Delay (GDD), or Intellectual Disability (ID) in a child, to identify the hereditary factors contributing to their condition.¹
