Re: No more free gen testing with the Periodic Paralysis Association?

They stopped the free testing in Germany last summer I believe (when Dr. Lehmann-Horn retired). I sent an email to Neuromics to see if they will do testing outside of the EU.

Dr. Lehmann-Horn's lab was the only one I am aware of that was doing free testing. The PPA has an agreement with Fullerton Genetics in the US to do testing for SCN4A mutations right now for $500 and hopefully CLCN1 sometime this year. However it's not full sequencing, so there's a chance it could miss your mutation.

I'll let you know if I can find anything for you. Sometimes you can get in on research studies that include sequencing as part of the study.
