Request / Find a Test Tool

The National Genomic Test Directories specify which genomic tests are commissioned by the NHS in England, to be delivered by Genomic Laboratory Hubs.

This tool allows clinical teams to search all of the genomic tests available to patients through the National Testing Directory. From here you can find out more details about each test and information about how to order them. These tests can only be ordered by clinical teams, if you are a patient looking to request a test please speak to your clinical team directly.

Eligibility Criteria

1. Cardiomyopathy of onset <12 years with no non-genetic explanation, OR 2. Individuals of any age with cardiomyopathy as their primary clinical presentation, where there is also a second condition, dysmorphism or other feature(s) suggestive of a syndromic cause such as a Rasopathy. Testing should be carried out in parallel with expert phenotypic assessment, for example in an Inherited Cardiac Clinic (ICC) or specialist paediatric cardiology service, including support from clinical genetics; testing may occasionally be appropriate outside these criteria following discussion in an ICC MDT.

Commissioning group


Overlapping idications

In individuals where cardiomyopathy is one of multiple features of a likely multisystem disorder R27 Congenital malformation and dysmorphism syndromes - likely monogenic or R89 Ultra-rare and atypical monogenic disorders tests should be used to enable testing of broader targets and familial testing where available Specific cardiomyopathy categories R131, R132 or R133 should be used where features are typical of non-syndromic hypertrophic, dilated or arrhythmogenic cardiomyopathy in individuals over the age of 12
