    The question was " Is Embark a diagnostic test?" and from the above logic no test is a diagnostic test because no test is 100% specific and 100% sensitive.  The basic answer is Embark is a diagnostic test but not a diagnosis then go into your explanation on how a diagnosis is made on signalment, history, physical exam findings, all diagnostic pieces (including genetic tests) to put together the clinical puzzle to diagnose a disease.
