The Collagen Diagnostic Laboratory (CDL) is housed in the Department of Pathology at the University of Washington, Seattle, WA.  The CDL offers diagnostic testing for osteogenesis imperfecta (OI), several forms of Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (EDS), and select other connective tissue disorders.  We also provide consultation for clinicians and families with questions on these rare disorders, review x-rays and clinical history,  and offer research testing and enrollment in research studies.

WHAT'S NEW AT THE COLLAGEN LAB

In the event a patient is not able to afford testing (or insurance is billed and denies coverage) the Collagen Diagnostic Laboratory offers several options through University of Washington Physicians (UWP), including a monthly payment plan, full pay discounts, and charity care options.  Please see Billing FAQ's for more information.

At the Collagen Diagnostic Laboratory, we strive to provide comprehensive and accurate variant interpretations.  To adhere to professional standards, we have adopted the recently released ACMG/AMP guidelines for variant interpretation (Richards 2015).  Please review the CDL Policy for Variant Interpretation for more information.
