The ordering clinician or an individual to whom the clinician has delegated authority is required by Michigan law to obtain the written informed consent of the test subject for pre-symptomatic or predictive genetic testing. By ordering such genetic testing from MLabs the clinician acknowledges that informed consent has been obtained from the patient as required by applicable state or federal laws and the ordering clinician has authorization from the patient permitting MLabs to report the test results to the ordering clinician.
