Rapid exome and genome sequencing

When timing is critical, a rapid diagnosis can shorten hospital stays, reduce healthcare costs and save lives.[1-5] Get verbal results with GenomeXpressTM, rapid genome sequencing, and XomeDxXpress, rapid exome sequencing, in 7 days.*

*The 7 day timeframe begins after both the patient’s and relative specimens, as appropriate, are received at our laboratory.

Repeat expansion analysis for ataxias

About 66% of ataxia cases have a genetic cause.[6,7] Our repeat expansion analysis tests can provide genetic confirmation to guide treatment decisions and help patients plan for the future.

A lab technician scans a blood sample tube for genetic testing

GeneDx takes DNA from the specimen, then sequences the DNA looking for changes in the patient's genome. The genetic data is analyzed and interpreted by our technical and clinical staff.
