All sequencing technologies have limitations. This analysis is performed by PCR amplification of mitochondrial DNA and Next Generation Sequencing (NGS). This analysis is designed to examine all 37 mtDNA genes and utilizes overlapping primer sets to cover all 16,569 nucleotides. This assay has been validated for the detection of mitochondrial DNA heteroplasmy at a minimum level of 2-5%. This assay is not designed or validated for the detection of mutations occurring in nuclear-encoded genes.
