We have a rapidly expanding list of resources that can be very helpful when preparing for genetic testing. Below we have listed consent, letters of medical necessity and several other forms that will assist you in preparing for, processing and completing your genetic testing.

All Ambry Test Requisition Forms (TRFs) have been updated and improved. Please use the new versions available here and discard old ones. To ensure you are using the latest versions, please refresh your browser when viewing.

Our updated TRFs feature a new multi-gene panel ordering process for our hereditary cancer testing options. Please see PDF for all details on our new cancer ordering process.

Please note that our TRFs and Patient Consent Forms include a place for patients to consent to the use of their DNA sample for research purposes. Any data shared in the AmbryShare database belong to patients that previously consented to this.

Test Requisition Forms (TRFs) may be filled out electronically.  In order to take advantage of the TRFs enterable fields for saving repeated entries (i.e. GC name or Institutional Billing), save the form to your computer, then enter the fields of choice and save to your computer again.  Electronically completed TRFs will not be electronically delivered to Ambry, they must be printed and sent with the sample.  If you would prefer to submit your orders electronically, click here to get setup on using AmbryPort2 (AP2), our convenient online ordering and reporting portal.
