Re: how long to get test results for cf testing

It depends. A sweat test can be either right away or a couple hours.

Basic genetic testing -- meaning testing the most common mutations -- 35+ takes less than a week. DS was tested on a Sunday and the results came back on Thursday.

Ambry amplified and quest (sp) can take 2-6 weeks. There are over 1500 CF mutations.
